This blog should be called "The Adventures of a Fabric Junkie!". I am passionate about fabric, threads, colours and textures. I can record my crazy quilting, sane quilting, embroidery and everything else that I consider important in my life.

Tatted circle

This is the little bit of variegated green tatting which I did on the plane coming home from the Easter Gathering. I chose a plastic shuttle which didn't have a crochet hook imbedded in one end so that it wasn't regarded as a dangerous weapon of mass destruction! Once it was finished at about the same time as the wheels of the plane came down for landing, it looked a bit like a Christmas wreath. I blocked it flat and attached it to the corner of my own Easter Gathering block then added a corded flower in the centre and little coloured plastic flower beads around the edge. If I do another one for a Christmas wreath, I wouldn't use the variegated thread again, instead I would use a plain dark green one. However, this one looks quite happy on the corner of my block.

You found the perfect spot for your tatted wreath and I love the flower and beads. That is one of my favorite patterns cause it is so quick to do.
