Tollway Tatters Flower

I was fortunate to be added to the Tollway Tatters facebook group although I will probably never meet a member but have always been virtual friends.  

This pattern was posted on facebook by Thea one of the members.  I loved it so much I asked to be a member of the group.

This flower is worked up in a vintage size 30 thread.  I received it in a ball so I have no label but it feels like a coats thread.  To wear, I put a shank button into the center and a bobbie pin through the button hole.  It could easily be attached to a hair clip.

I needed earrings to match the flower.



These two projects were finished at Pioneer Acres this weekend.  Thanks to all the organizers and I hope to see you again next year.

Pioneer Acres


This weekend the Wild Rose Lacemakers will be doing bobbin lace and tatting demos at Pioneer Acres.  We will be located in the Museum so drop in and say hello.  We will have a pillow for you to try bobbin lace and I will have shuttles for you to try your hand at shuttle tatting. 



You can see in the picture some of my  assortment of shuttles and  3D tatting in little clear cups for display.  

Inside the purple roll  are various doilies and bits of tatting.  I cover the tatting with a clear tablecloth then roll it around a pool noodle for travel.  

I believe I saw the pool noodle technique which another tatter had used to transport her Monster Doily, was it you Ginny? 

So if you are anywhere near Irricana Alberta this weekend we'd love to see you.
