Been a little under the weather and feeling blah! But shopping for tatting always cheers me up. I got Martha's book a couple of days before arriving to PR and I have been drooling over it. Not knowing what to do first.
Martha's book is called "Tea is for Tatting", a collection of teapots and cups. There are 10 patterns using different techniques and there's even a 3-D set. A must have book definitively!
I made my first 2 teapots. The variegated color is a weird one. It's called "Marble" by Lizbeth #20. I like the thread, even before the recall (I didn't mind the extra twisting) and when I got some tatting money a couple of weeks ago I got severals, but this will be another post.
The one on the right has a ring less and it's all crooked. I didn't noticed the mistake until I finish it and wanted it to lok "straight". But it's a cute teapot, kinda ike the ones you would find in Alice in Wonderland's Tea Party. :-) NOW I have the "Unbirthday Song" on my head! lol
I think the next teapot to tat will be the "famous"Antique Rose Set. everyone is tatting that one because is so pretty! And I found a dusty rose Opera #20 that I'll use for it and will frame the set for mom.
