Table Runner, The Beginning



Good afternoon
Here is one of my WIPs.  This is a pattern from “Helping Hands Newsletter Vol. 20 Issue 1”.  It is described as a Dressing Set but I am making it as a table runner for our dining room table. 



It is an easy pattern and I do it while watching New England Patriots and Red Sox, both of whom won last night.  It takes me an hour to do each ring.  



 I am using Lizbeth #168, size 20.  Using the shuttle and ball method, I put four yards on the shuttle to make one ring. 



I am not overly pleased with my pictures, I will get better.

Have a nice tatting evening.

Teddy



Good evening to everyone

I have been taking pictures of my tatting.  This is a practice post to figure out how to post them, see how they look and how I need to adjust them.  The first picture is of a yellow cat, Teddy, from “Tatted Animals” by Inga Madsen, published in 2003.




The next picture is of Teddy, another yellow cat, he was adopted from the Berkshire Humane Society in February of this year.  



I hope to have pictures soon of a WIP, the one I work on when watching the New England Patriots or the Red Sox.
 
Have a nice evening
