Happy international tatting day



                                   Happy international tatting day to all tatters around the world.

Today is a bank holiday here in the U.K.,  the weather has been mixed,  I just would like it to warm up,  usually we tat in public today, but being a bank holiday that won’t be possible.  I do often tat in public either in the hospital waiting for Vernon,  or again waiting for him when he has his hair cut at the craft cafe, The Hive in Shepton Mallet.

I wanted to make something quick in tatting for the day,  and last Saturday this pattern popped into my email box,  it’s called Stained Glass mini Cross by Lilliantatlace,   It’s one and three quarter’s inches long on and half inches wide,  I added a tail making it into a mini book mark.  I used Lizbeth thread no 20 Countryside.

I think there will be some more of these little cross idea for a small bible.

Enjoy your day hope you get a lot of tatting done.

Happy tatting 



  1. Oh yes, I saved that pattern too, it’s lovely. Happy international tatting day.

  2. Happy International Tatting Day, Margaret!

  3. Beautiful and perfect for a Bible. I have a cross you sent me many moons ago and I keep that in a Bible. xx

  4. Love how you converted it into a bookmark. Very pretty. I haven't tatted outside in years, but I follow the ritual every year, including eating chocolate cake, etc.

  5. How beautiful Margaret, wonderful design, Kate x
