nuntium centesimum duodesexagesimum - complete!

It's done, unpinned and in its new home- the Quatrain!



Sorry for all the pictures, I couldn't help it!


I smile each time I walk past it.

But now there's a weird bit of project let-down.  Seriously.  Or it could be my daughter going off to college.

Next I'd like to make a bag/reticule.  I've looked and don't see many patterns.  Do you have a favorite one?  I like the style of this one

I've done one of Jon Yusoff's patterns- Cintamani from her book Elegant Tatting Gems, three Vicki Clarke- my favorite heart ever (talk about a comfort tat) and started a mini-dragon from a tatter at "intatters" but I'm ready for another project.

Reticules, anyone?

  2. Absolutely gorgeous! I'd love to tat a reticule, but I haven't seen a pattern that calls to me. Maybe you could design one, and it could be a tat-a-long... just in time for the start of school! ;-)

  4. Michelle, it is a glorious piece of tatting. Kudos! Reticule - isn't that a bad word? I can’t begin to imagine tatting whatever it is... : ))

  6. Beautiful, beautiful! Well done. Yes, I sometimes hesitate to finish a big project because there is that let down feeling. I'm sure you'll soon be involved in another project. Is there a beaded reticule in the Julia Sanders book?
