About Me

My photo
I have been a crafter of all sorts for many years, and really love working with Paper and Threads. I am loving the design work I am doing now. I really seem to be getting back into my "art", even if I am doing it by computer now, instead of actually getting dirty while drawing. ;-) I have been avid about Thread Arts since I was a kid, learning to Crochet at 7, then Knit, Embroider, Needle Lace and finally Needle Tat. I love to design as well and am looking forward to taking the Needle Tatting that further step as well.

My Very First Original Design!

Well after seeing a Pendant tatted over a Cabone Ring, I was inspired to try my hand at tatting over a Cabone Ring.  I don't have any patterns for doing this, so just kind of "winged" it.  After I learn how to write the pattern out and draw the diagram, I will be happy to share my pattern with you. ;-)  I am calling this one Beaded Daisy Pendant.

This next one is a Doily I just finished last night.  The pattern is the Amusement Doily by "Creations by Celtess" and worked in size 30 Big Ball Mercerized Cotton.

I really love how this pattern worked out and will be doing it agian!


  1. Ooooo, these are both very pretty! So sunny looking! LOVE the doily! :)

  2. These are both so beautiful Carol. I love the variegated yellow thread you've used for the doily.
