Tea time! and review

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.

Hi Wally! Isn't Martha's new book, fun!? That is so sweet that you plan on tatting that set for your Mom! I look forward to seeing that Antique Rose set realized in the dusty rose thread! Thanks for the cute vid. I love the Mad Tea Party! So funny! What a perfect vid for the tea pot post! :)
