Happy St Patricks Day

Hi,                                                                                               Happy St Patricks Day,   this is one of the first pieces of tatting I have done since my accident,  its not perfect,  I am trying to do a little bit each day even if its only a clover leaf.   This is a pattern by Mariya Davydova  the link I have to her blog  is mariyas-tatting-blogspot.com,  it did not work when I tried it but it might work for you.  She called the pattern clover and was done with four leaves but as you can see by the picture on the left  it did not lay right so I did another one with three leaves as above.  Nice pattern and easy to do.
I used Lizbeth thread no 20 Christmas Green mix.  I know it looks the wrong green for a clover leaf but I had this on the shuttle.  Lovely to be tatting again but the pain after a while, so for the time being just small pieces until my fingers get back to normal.
We got back over the weekend,  but I will have to go back up to Sheffield again very soon,  we had bad news this time and it's just a question of getting our heads around it. More about it later in the week,  if you don't get a comment on your blog rest assured I am with you in spirt.


  1. Happy St. Patrick's Day, love your shamrock. Take the tatting easy! Taking it slow might be quicker in the long run.

  2. Happy St. Patrick's Day, Margaret! Love the shamrock!

  3. what a beautiful clover leaf, pleased you are managing to do a little tatting again, sorry to hear you have had bad news
    Hugs Tilly

  4. Glad to see you are able to do some tatting. Take it easy and take care!

  5. Get well soon! I did my shamrocks in the same thread color this year, so I don't see the problem!

    Hope you are feeling better.

  6. Your clover looks nice to me!! :)

  7. Just a note to say hi and hope you are having a good day! I so appreciate all the comments you make on my blog 'New to Me'. You are always so uplifting. Take care and know you are in my heart and mind! Lovely clover, too.

  8. Well I think its perfect Margaret! I am glad that you are able to get back to your tatting again. Michelle x

  9. Happy to see you are able to tat a little again!

  10. Sorry Margaret, some how I missed this one, it is odd to because I was thinking of doing that doily in mastering tatting book by Lindsay Rodgers and I don't like the clover in it (on page 58) number 7, any way it's the picot and I wanted to replace it with a ring like you have here I may just do that now that I see how nice this looks.
