Classic Doily for birthday present

This is my Classic Doily (pattern in Free section) that I did for my best friend's birthday. She absolutely loved it, as I knew she would....I had done it in very fine thread....DMC vintage 70....making it very fine.

Oval creation

I decided I wanted a new tatted oval doily and so picked up my shuttles and made a start....this is the result so far. I am using a DMC vintage thread in size 70.

Tatted brooches for Tat Days

These are the brooches I designed as gifts for the Tat Days tutors. I never actually got around to writing out the pattern and so I had better do it soon so that I can post the pattern PDF in my Free Pattern section.

New Collar PDFs uploaded

I have uploaded two new collar patterns to my Free Pattern section, I tried to put pictures of them in this post but blogger is having a moment and simply isn't playing!

Although I designed them two years ago I wasn't able to publish them because they were designed specifically as presents for the teachers at Palmettos Tat Days. Now that the Tat Days event has taken place (last weekend) I can now share the patterns with the rest of the tatting community.

I also designed a brooch for the same set of teachers but I haven't written the pattern for those....maybe soon.

Crocheted wheaten scottie dog

My son and daughter in law have a black scottie and a wheaten scottie and so I thiught I would have a go at crocheting a wheaten one with some spare cream arran wool.

I'm very pleased with the result.....I made it up as I went along, but didn't write the pattern down as I was doing it! Now I wish that I had!

90th birthday cake request

I don't usually do cake requests anymore but how could I say no to such pleading! I must admit I really enjoyed the challenge, but I wouldn't want to go back to a regular thing!

The cake is a rich fruit one and could last for months, but being laced with so much whiskey I don't expect it will last for very long! It is covered with 2lbs of marzipan and 2lbs of soft icing. All the decoration is done by myself including the lily.
