Everyone was posting their versions of Renulek's Spring Doily and people all around the world tatting the same doily with different color combinations. I was very impressed and wanted to join them. It was looking into different patterns to tat a doily which I had never done.

So here is my version of Renulek's Spring Doily, round one completed.

TIAS Day One

The very idea of TIAS is enough to get me excited to participate. Jane Eborall has done a brilliant effort to bring tatters around the world work on one pattern and guessing the outcome on it. It is really interesting to read all the comments & guesses of participants. I love being a part of it and sincerely hope that I will be able to finish it too. Here is my tatting for the TIAS day one.

I don't know the name & make of the thread but I do like the way it is turning out. Already loving it. In the mean time I am looking into making the last years TIAS goat too and that too before the end of this years TIAS.  
Happy Tatting everyone!!!

And The Winner is

Sorry for no picture post but today I just wanted to announce the winner of my giveaway.

I got a few suggestions and the first one was Temptation given by one of my friends Kalyna on my facebook page. I liked the suggestion but this one I want to use for my bracelet pattern which I am giving away to the winner. Since naming of the bracelet was not a part of the giveaway but still Kalyna will receive one of the bracelet for free.

I liked the other name suggested Dr. Kanwal in my facebook inbox which is Mother's Creations which I was going to use for my shop name on Etsy. But unfortunately this name is not available so I have named my shop as Mother's Tatted Treasures.

Thanks a lot everyone for your input. Congratulations Kalyna & Dr. Kanwal for being the winner in the first ever giveaway on my blog. Stay tuned.

Giveaway Time

I was thinking of opening my own online store since last year but was not getting enough time to make new things and list them up for sale. Finally after getting free from my exams and related stuff, I got time to get my shuttles and threads out to tat something new. Now I need to name my shop and for that I looked into many names but nothing appealed till now. So I decided to ask for my readers view in this regard.

I have made this bracelet in red thread with glass beads to giveaway for free to the reader who will suggest me a catchy name for my online shop. All you have to do is to leave your suggested name in the comments under this post. The reader whose suggested name I will use for my shop will get this bracelet for free. I will post the winners name on December 07, 2012.

Exams are over, feeling relaxed and want to concentrate on other things which were taking back spot all through this time. Like spending time with my family and friends and much much more. Didn't get time to tat anything too & that is also on the agenda means doing more of it. Planning to open an online store soon. Just realized that I was missing on so many things for all this time.

Even though I didn't tat anything for a while, still I have found a few things to share while looking into my tatting basket yesterday. These are snowflakes which I made using Jon Yusof's pattern. Last year I participated in the Spring Bookmark Exchange event and I sent my bookmark to Jon. After sending the bookmark to her I decided to go over her site and I decided to make these snowflakes right away.

First one was Daisy Picot Snowflake, I made this snowflake because it involved using daisy picots which I had never used in any of my work before. This gives very interesting results.

The second one was Hearts in a Snowflake, this didn't come out as well as in the pattern itself. I will try to make it again for better result and also the rest of the snowflake patterns.
Hope that now onward i will be more regular in doing tatting and posting new. May God bless us all!

Few More Earrings

Still obsessed with tatting more earrings -

These earrings were made following the pattern by Jennifer Williams. I love the color and the effect.

This pattern is taken from this link and my due appreciation goes to the designer.

Just Playing around with Thread

I was just playing around with the thread without even thinking what to make. I ended up making this earring and necklace set in red colored thread with shiny bead. I scanned it with two different backgrounds to see the different effects it give.

For the pattern, I would just say that I made it up myself. All the rings are 3ds p 3ds B 3ds p 3ds. All the chains are 3ds B 3ds 3B 3ds B 3ds. I made this circle in just one go. Starting with the ring and chain sequence, I inserted the jump ring in the fourth chain replacing the 3B. Continuing with ring chain sequence till  I joined the last picot of the eighth ring to the first picot of the first ring. The last chain is split chain, splitted at the point where 3B had to go and inserting a larger pearl bead in both the strings and followed by the individual strings of beads.  
I like the final look of the work but would love to have more ideas of my readers.
