Tatted Ladies


Hi,
Another horrible day here in somerset, all its done today is rain, I hope the sun will shine soon and we have not lost our summer so soon because it will be a very long winter.
Today I am bring you a pattern which Suzanne found when looking for something else. The designs are by Darlene Polachic and called Sunbonnet Sue motif, but I would like to call them Tatted Ladies.
The picture above was done in no 20 merchandised cotton in pale yellow and white.

This one is also done in merchandised cotton no 2o in white and ramdon colour thread, this thread I brought when I was learning to tat in Woolworth's for only a couple of shillings. Thats showing my age! I did not really like the thread and don't use it but I thought I would give it a try and see how it would work out. I can't find any ramdon threads and I only wish I could find a supplier as it would be to tat in some lovely threads instead of always using single colours.
I hope you have enjoyed reading my blog today and I must thank Suzanne for finding such a lovely pattern.
I look forward to seeing you again in blog land soon.
Take care
Hugs Margaret
