Hector "Red House Inn" gang!

February 2007

Wow...time is still flying!

I just joined Yahoo's Lace of Beads. Some very interesting postings! I recently tried 2 new threads, both have too much glitter, so I don't think I'll add beads with it. The polyester yard is very smooth to work with and I think will work up well for jewelry since it is somewhat soft. I'll have to get a gold color. I the ribbon floss tats up thick and is rough.

June 2005

I combined what I learned from Jaquie's bracelet pattern (below) and Nina's pattern (BNL-086 Pink Pearl Bracelet,; to make my bracelet. My center bead choice was too large to use Nina's pattern as is, so I had to adjust. Scan's don't do justice to the piece.

Rayon thread from Gale ( - unfortunately I goofed the closing...that's what I get for watching TV at the same time :-( The thread does feel good working, but I've got to keep the tension tighter - as you can see. I think it would make a nice hanky edging. Thanks for bringing it to Hector Gale! :-)


Here is my try for the bracelet that Jaquie (from the UK) taught us! The purple is a size 10, the black is a size 12 pearl cotton. I've got to work on my tension a little more..but it's a nice first try :-)

The notecard that I started in Rita's silky sensations is still under construction...I'm looking forward to finishing it!



Here is what I tatted for my April tatting exchange buddy (Jill): Irene Woo's Butterfly Heart - I used a varigated pearl cotton thread (measures about 2"), the scan didn't do justice to the colors. Jill sent me a beautiful pearl tatted bracelet, a neat tatting bag and 5 compartment container in addition to a few other goodies...thanks Jill!

Nov 2004

Here's my version of the "Tatted Starlight Doily". The pattern is on page 7 & 24 of The Tatter's Treasure Chest, by Dover Publications, 1990. I used #50 turkish thread (#770 color), the doily is 8" in diameter.

March 2004

I completed the free pattern #3 from the site. I used a manuala thread, final piece measured 4 x 5.5 inches. Few glitches here and there.

I finally finished Nina's bnl017 necklace pattern ( 2/24/04. One thing I learned here is that I waited too long to complete the last segment. I messed up a little when I had add more thread and beads, because I had forgotten which shuttle was which! Tsk..Tsk..luckily it's near the clasp and won't be seen!
