Old And New Tatting

I got some very nice comments about my tatting so I dug it out again. I did this wreath today. It was the second attempt today. The first is the next picture down.

This is one old butterfly and one new one. The one on the left was done in the past. The peach one on the right was the first thing I tried today. Boy am I rusty. My loops are not like they should be but I will get better with practice.

This is one of the many necklaces I made years ago. I do not remember how many I made but it was a lot. I sold most of them. I also used beads where the country buttons are hanging. I took my class in 1995 which is a long time ago.

This is also a necklace and earrings I made for myself way back then. This one is in Ecru.


  1. So pretty! I love the necklace I have. I don't know where it's at right now, but I love it! :0)

  2. They are gorgeous Tudy. I must admit I have never seen anything even remotely like those here in Aus.

  3. Beautiful work, Tudy! I absolutely love the necklace and earrings - how very clever!

  4. Glad to see you've 'polished off' the shuttles and have caught the tatting 'bug' again. I love the idea of the necklace with the buttons. Hmmmm, that's given me an idea!!!!!

  5. Nice tattings. I made my mom a button necklace quite similar to this YEARS!! ago. I noticed she was wearing it this past weekend. Nice to see that :)
