Closing This Blog

I am finding keeping a separate blog for just tatting to be too much work and not enough time.  Therefore I am closing down this blog and all my blog postings will be on my Peachtree Cottage Blog

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays to all my friends! I've been super busy the last 3 weeks with something new....


This is my daughter's new puppy, Sophie :-) She's a 'teddy bear', which means a cross between a Shih Tsu and a Bishon Frise...and I have to say she is absolutely adorable! Soft hair like fur (that doesn't shed!!) and she's super smart and loves people.
While we've been working on housebreaking I've managed to get in a little bit of tattings and created these little Christmas Wreath holiday tatted earrings.
I hope to post some more stuff soon!

Holiday Spices

The sounds and scents of the holidays will soon be upon us. I love the scents of holiday cooking and wanted to make a pendant about spices. This is my Holiday Spice Tatted Pendant, made using Lizbeth threads and inspired by a 1916 edging.



Available in my etsy shop ( https://www.etsy.com/listing/113406106/holiday-spice-tatted-pendant-free or on my website ( http://www.PeachtreeCottage.com )

I already have another idea using these same colors...so watch this space for another 'spice' item to be posted soon.

Vineyard Butterflies

I know I know...I said I was going to work on some winter stuff, but I just love the colors in the Vineyard Harvest Lizbeth Thread. So here's a quick little pair of earrings with some "Vineyard Butterflies"...hehe

And I just got in another thread with fall colors so there might be some more fall stuff before I get to winter...lol...just saying....

Autumn Leaves

I've really gotten into the fall season this year and have been enjoying the autumn colors. Add to that some great patterns from various designers for leaves and other things and well....it's made my fall enjoyable :-)

This time I used some greens to make up some little leaves as earrings. The leaf design is by Joelle Paulson and I used size 20 shaded green thread. I think they make a perfect size for earrings :-)


These are available in my Etsy Shop - https://www.etsy.com/listing/112969119/autumn-green-tatted-earrings-free

Now it's time for me to start working on some winter stuff. :-)

My First Tatted Dragon

Ever since I first saw them I've wanted to make up one of Anne Bruvold's tatted dragons. Well I finally managed the time to work on one! I thought it would be more complicated than it was but it wasn't nearly as difficult as I had expected. Instead of doing SSMRs I worked split rings on the tail/body. This one has been called my Cotton Candy Tatted Dragon because of the colors in the thread. Hope you all like him as much as I do! I'll definitely have to make more of these!



I'm also working on a design by me! hehe....I have the picture in my head and most of how it will work up in my head. I need to tat it up (writing down the instructions as I go) and then find some way to get it diagramed. It's my next tatted project so hopefully it won't be too long before I can show it to you.

My tatted items can be found on my website - http://www.PeachtreeCottage.com or in my Etsy shops - http://PeachtreeCottage.etsy.com and http://TattedDelights.etsy.com

Vineyard Elegance

I recently saw several tatters working with 'doodads' and wanted to give it a try. Joelle Paulson had a lovely pattern for one, so I ordered some doodads. When they arrived I took my shuttles (which had Lizbeth's Vineyard Harvest already on it from making my Vine Bracelet) and starting tatting away. The result is the Vineyard Elegance Set.

I did the full pattern for the pendant and did a shortened version for the earrings. I think the set is lovely and noticed it will really coordinate well with my Harvest Vine Bracelet too!

They are available in my etsy shop ( http://PeachtreeCottage.etsy.com) or from my website ( http://www.PeachtreeCottage.com )
