Playing with Picots

Playing with Picots is the title of one of Martha Ess's books. I actually have her latest book 'Toys for Tatting' but need a little more time to sit down and make something from it, may be over Christmas.   Now that I have become a grandmother for the first time it certainly means that the book will be put into good use.

I am, of course, more familiar with 'Playing with Picots' and have tatted many patterns from it in the past. However, this was the first time I had attempted Chris' broomstick snowflake, the yellow one, not perfect and might look better in a different colour, but it is pretty.



The angel seems to be having a bit of a gig on the top, but have now stiffened it to stop the dancing around!

  1. Very effective. The yellow one looks very intricate, but when I look closely I see it's the long picots that give that impression.

  2. It looks like you've been playing with color, also! They are all beautiful! I need to pull out that book and tat a few. Maybe I should start thinking about tatting goals for 2017! ;-)

    1. Tatting Goals are all very well Diane if you can achieve them! Do think that tatting should be fun and not be stressful like it was getting for me when trying to achieve a goal.

    1. She/he has danced or flown away to be with someone else who designed an angel for all our church publicity over Christmas.
