Tatted bookmark

A proper tatted bookmark

Yay! I have finally managed to complete a larger tatting project. I found the pattern for this lovely bookmark here, and as soon as I saw it I wanted to try and make it. I thought it would look lovely in traditional white rather than using some of the variegated coloured thread I bought a while ago, so I dug around in my crafting hoard and found some crochet cotton I’ve had hidden away for years. I took a deep breath and got started……


Tatting with two shuttles: My first tatted earrings!

The last couple of weeks have been very busy, as I’ve been travelling to various places visiting family, so I haven’t had much time for crafting or blogging. I spent a few days in London, looking after my lovely grandchildren and seeing my grown-up children. We went to the Anniversary Games at the Olympic Stadium, and cheered our athletes on – I can’t believe it’s a year since I was working as a Gamesmaker and going to the Olympic Park every day. I am now in Hertfordshire visiting my brother and his wife. Again we’ve been whizzing about. We went to a Victorian Schools Museum, found some geocaches, and today went to Cambridge for the day. We’ve also been putting our moth trap out – it consists of a bright light bulb which attracts the moths into a large tub, where they hide in the egg boxes we put in the bottom. If you want to see some photos, you can see them on my Pinterest board here.
