TIAS 2017, Armenian Lace, Block Heart
On with the show ….
More practice with Armenian Lace
My further practice with basic knot of Armenian lace done a few days back from Totus Mel's tutorial.
This time I used size 40 Anchor Mercer crochet cotton and it worked beautifully !
I was using leftover thread for the inner rings and ran out all too soon; hence all those ugly ends. Still to complete the other petals to see how it all works out.

Jane’s TIAS 2017
I’m sticking with a gown guess. My colourway choice seems to fit with Victorian velvets ☺.
The bead adds a nice touch to the bodice or the slim-trim waist. I’m guessing there’s going to be more of a blouse in later bits, and an alligator join across the base of today’s rings will complete the shawl/ensemble !
Looks like one of Jane Austen’s memorable ladies (hmm, but which one ????) is walking up a little mound on the moors. Clearly the present Jane is paying a TATribute to the past Jane !
Request for a test tatter
I have written out the pattern for my Block Heart bracelet and would like someone to test tat 1 or 2 heart motifs. It’s a very small piece (2 repeats measure 1½ inches/4cms in size 20 thread), but I’m not sure how clear the instructions are. I’m making a bracelet for now (I've changed the colours), to share before Valentine’s, but have more applications in mind.
Your help will be highly appreciated and credited. Please leave a comment below or email me and I will email the document. Thanks in anticipation
happy tatting always :-)
