2009 SC State Fair Entries

Well today was the day to bring our entries to the SC State Fair.

A design by Jan Stawasz simply called Doily I call it the flowering doily. I tatted this using Manuela size 20 thread instead of size 10 as the
instructions call for.

My next entry design by Jan Stawasz simply called Necklace
from the green set.
I prefer to call it The wedding Ensemble tatted in Manuela size 20 thread. I did make a pair of earrings to match using one of the motifs in the design using 3 beads on the outside chains intead of 2. I ended with chain 5, r = 7ds, ch 5.

When making earrings or a necklace I usually make a ring of 7 or 8 ds to add my link to. I do not use jump rings. Since I worked in the jewelry industry making Sarah Coventry jewelry in New England for years, I had a jewelers tool to open and close the link.


  1. Your tatting is beautiful. Good luck!
