an edge to a sample

A big advantage of this house is that I can spread out and have room for all my projects. Well, not all, but I’ve set up the loom, 

ready to warp

moved an organ in, 
ready to play

set up a tatting room

ready to tat
and a computer room.
ready to document

Hee heee. I’m using everything. Really.

I’ll be taking a workshop in November on Doubleweave.
More on that later.How am I working that into my tatting? Well, I create this sample of pick up on plain cloth:
Unknown cotton thread for warp and weft (probably 10/2)
And will add an edging tatted in the dark blue thread.

    1. Thank you! The edging pattern is from Mary Konior's Tatting with Visual Patterns. I hope I got it right! There are quite a few pictures of Chain Reaction out there, but very little about what to do at a corner. Off to tat corner #3....

  2. Wonderful to have so much space, a different area for each activity!

    1. I'm loving it! And the adventure continues now that we have the Historic designation. Next decision: what to name the house on the plaque.

  3. A Dream house for sure !!! What luxury to have a separate room for each activity :-)
    And whatever you name the house, the rooms have named themselves already :-D

    The edging is coming along nicely !
