Shuttle and thread, and peacock, Dollie, bracelet.

I have been trying to post all week. Painters came to paint the eves, then my brother came through taking a load to Salt Lake. He drives a semi and when not doing that he hangs iron.  He lives in Idaho on top of a mountain.
 So here is part of what I have tatted.  Hope to post more often.
This is the shuttle that I won from Mary Joseph Donohue.
she also sent me some thread and beads.
This is the package I received this morning from Jane McLellan.

Here is my peacock from Occhi Schiffchenspitze, Frivolite. Which the tail drove me crazy didn't have far to go. 

This is Nancy Tracy's Dollie

This is Jane McLellan bracelet. This I gave to my cousin Jenny along with a tatting shuttle.
Showed her the  how to do a ring and tryed to make sure she know how to get the stich to flip.



  1. My goodness, you've been busy! I love your peacock!

  2. I was just going to write what Diane did! Marvelous tatting, and amazing peacock!
    Is Nancy's doily pattern available? I love
    the shape of it! And that's a very pretty bracelet!
    I would think it would inspire your cousin to continue tatting! You definitely have been busy!
