April Fools Day - International Tatting Day

What better day to celebrate International Tatting day on 1st April and also its a Bank Holiday!  Hopefully I will be able to get some tatting done later on today, at the moment re-potting house plants as it is far to cold to go outside and garden, the wind chill is making it feel like zero degrees C.  
The ring was an experiment using Jane's brooch pattern. I am sort of pleased with the result,  it will be worn.  

Now this is a sight I like to see, balls of thread almost finished, particularly as these are old threads which I have had for years.  All have replacements either exactly the same or  a Lizbeth alternative waiting to jump to the rescue! 

Hope you all get a chance to do some tatting today.


  1. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! Happy International Tatting Day!

  2. Happy Tatting Day! empty balls are always exciting. That is a pretty ring. Have fun wearing it.

  3. Nothing better than empty cardboard centres of thread balls - gives one an extra excuse to buy more!!!
    LOVE the ring - now I'll have to do one too.

  4. Splendid ring! I find those ends of thread tend to lurk around for a long time. Good idea to finish them off and put the new ones to use.

  5. Hi Sally

    A very attractive brooch, I love the colour combinations. Of course you will enjoy wearing it and catching the admiring glances from passing folk.

    Thanks for sharing.

  6. Happy Tatting Day to you, too. I'm so glad you get the day off to do other things. What a tatting day!

  7. Happy International Tatting Day! I also love seeing the ends of thread balls, but it doesn't seem to happen very often... which is why I have so much thread. ;-)

  8. Hope your day was wonderful, Sally. Lovely purple ring.
