Tatting and chatting

 Six of us got together at the food court to tat. Lots of talking, but we did get some tatting done, too!
Khomi finished a lovely flower spray.

Some of us will be going to the Tollway Tatters gathering on Saturday, August 19, at the Hinsdale Oasis. Good times!

Tatting with friends

 Each 2nd Monday of the month I go to the mall food court with my tatting. Usually I start out tatting alone, but in a short while my tatting friends show up!
 Ana has been learning many new techniques. Now she's practicing floating rings from chains. It's her first time using 2 shuttles, and she's doing great!
 This French tatting book has many wonderful ideas and excellent photos.
 The reprint of Dora Young's Knotless Tatting. Lots of uses for split chain technique.
Khomi's tatting box; isn't it colorful?

A lovely day in June

 At the June meeting, we all worked on our own projects.
 Ana practiced the single shuttle split ring.
 Barbara continued tatting a pattern she had started with a sunny yellow center.
 Sue Anna worked on the gear earrings from the Bead&Button Show.

 Looking forward to seeing what people will be tatting at the July meeting! 2nd Monday of the month, Mayfair Mall food court.

Projects in February

The start of "Unfolding Heart"
 It was Ana and me by ourselves this month, each tatting jewelry projects. I started a heart in bright red Lizbeth thread and Toho Takumi seed beads.
As far as I got with my tatting at the mall.

Ana came wearing a beautiful handmade bracelet on one hand and a bandage on the other! She wasn't able to bend that finger much, but since it was her shuttle hand she could still tat.

As far as Ana got with her project, a necklace in progress.

Khomi arrived just in time to claim her tatting magazine and to visit!
