Tatting Projects completed on Sunday

I went to tat some of the projects in Martha Ess' new book "Playing with Picots" and I realized I did not have one empty shuttle, so I decided to use what was on my shuttles to tat up some of Martha's designs.

The first was Little Sister Angel  tatted in size 40 Lizbeth thread. It measures 1 5/8" long x
1 1/8" wide.

Then I figured a good pattern to empty my shuttle of  Falling Leaves and yellow Lizbeth thread was Sunrise, Sunset Bookmark  I only had enough thread on the shuttle to make the bookmark 3"s long instead of 5 1/2"s long, this did not include the tassel.  this length worked out quite well for a prayer book size.

Well I have to go pack my bags, I am off to Birmingham, AL for 3 days with my church group 1st thing tomorrow morning.  I am looking forward to getting away for 3 days and making new friends on the trip.  There will be 25 of us going.  I will be taking my tatting, knitting and crocheting along since it is a 6 hr. ride each way.  I know I will get a lot done if I don't fall asleep on the way....LOL


  1. Such beautiful projects! :)

  2. Great job with your latest bit of tatting! Hope you remembered to pack your shuttles and threads...

  3. Angel looks beautiful...

    BTW, did you by any chance send the pattern over for testing to me? I was checking since I have not received anything in my email so far.

  4. Is there a chance to get the pattern for this angel here in Germany? Can I buy the pattern from Etsy, Caftsy, Pinterest etc.?
