July Tatting

Exactly 1 month ago I started this blog after a PTG Meeting. This month I wrote down what I have tatted and I am truely amazed for a turtle like me. I think I have tatted more in this month that I have in any year of my life.....that is with keeping the 3 doodlebugs!

1 Victorian bookmark - Marilynn Brockley
I was test tatting the thread that Hegla had given us at the meeting and I need more bookmarks to give away.

2. Eternal Rose Bracelet - Marilynn Brockley pattern for the rose and her hand died thread given to me by Marie Smith

3. Eternal Rose Earrings MB from left over thread on shuttles.

4. Started a necklace Eternal Rose - MB

5. Split Ring Bracelet for Emma - Juliet Herring's pattern
Used pink and yellow nylon thread

6. Made a pattern for lightening bugs using florescing yellow thread from Joanie then after several attempts and help from Jerry made 6 I can give away.

7. Sweet Minnie Hummingbirds - Karey Solomon's pattern in new Tatting Times. Made 3 so far

8. Gary the Snail - Pschedelic that is for Emma using Nancy Tracy's pattern.

9. Finished part 1 lesson on Dragonfly of Karey Solomon's

10. Turtle Earrings - se post already. Used up all my china berries and made 8 turtles.

11. Only got 3 snakes done this month.

12. made 4 more pairs of Beaded Earrings - Sharron Morgan's pattern of course. I keep trying different threads and beads but like the Guatamala blue thread from Doris Patmos with blue beads the best.
13. 2 pairs of earrings using pattern Joanie sent me the link to from LadyTats - Jeanne Lugert. This pattern is great for using thread left on a shuttle. Takes 4 beads times 5 rings.


  1. Very nice Pam,
    you do good work, I love the lightening bugs, I have some glow in the dark thread that I have had for some time. it is stored in the dark so will have to see if it still will glow, I have a grandson or 2 that would really like some bugs.
    Thanks for useing my pattern for some of your earings. They look really good

  2. Hi Pam,
    It looks great all those things you tatted.
    I like the snake and am busy with tatting some small animals as give aways for the fair.
