pattern and idea

Pin It now!
Pattern for the Poinsettia is ready!


My life has been quite scattered this entire month. Hence my disappearing acts ;-P
I do try to follow along, but leaving comments has been stymied due to erratic server on my desktop. Even this pattern and it’s conversion to pdf has been through a circuitous route through multiple devices. But I’d promised Carollyn! And the silver lining is that I learned something new!

This enclosed space medallion is constituted of inward facing clovers connected with chains and thrown/floating rings.
All beads are pre-strung and moved along the picot thread (not the core thread) – Nina Libin calls them “up’ beads.

In case of any doubts or questions, feel free to leave a comment or email me.
I hope you enjoy tatting this as much as I did.

UPDATE (Nov 3, 2017): Check how Carollyn adapted the pattern into lovely earrings using size 80 thread !!! I was thrilled to see them and the model too :-)

Meanwhile, I’ve been spending time joining the clover wreath medallions into mats. One coaster is complete & I have sketched a tentative edging for it. Need to put it to shuttles.



But here’s a peek into a bunting formation – just right for the holiday season if the colours are changed. Add a ribbon or straight header for hanging.  And if one wants triangles, simply join another medallion at the tip.

Here’s wishing I get more good days out of the server connection than bad ones :-D

My apologies for delays in responding to emails … 

happy tatting and  hope to stay in touch J

  1. It's difficult to function with dodgy internet connections, I do know from experience! Well done for getting the job done anyway. Thanks for the pattern, I like the pointsettia, so I may well give it a go.

  2. Thank you for sharing your pattern! It's so bright and cheerful. Are you using beads on the mats as well? I've often wondered if the beads would scratch the furniture or break when something is set on them. I hope your Internet connection rights itself quickly!

    1. No, Diane, I never use beads in mats/coasters/doilies or on bookmarks - don't want to spoil anything.

      Trying to make the most of any connectivity window I get :-)

  5. We do take the Internet for granted and get so frustrated when it fails us... I know I do at least! Hope your problem will soon be solved. Thank you so much for sharing your pattern :) And I love the bunting idea very much!

    1. Slyvie, the CMD's office has been on it for the last several weeks and I'm hoping yesterday was the last bad day Finally ;-P
      Hexagons lend themselves to such wonderful arrangements, as quilters know!

  8. Muskaan as you know that I am new among bloggers so I have one difficulty that in many blogs it shows G+, facebook, twitter symbols does it means that the posts are shared with these social networks automatically? if it is so how to share the blog? It's my request that please guide me in this direction.

    1. Glad you liked the 'patchwork', Alka :-)

      The blog posts do not "automatically" get shared on the various SMS. But the icons do make it easier to share. All you need to do is click on the respective icon and the lead picture will be shared on that platform/account provided you are a member.

      I think you are on G+. So I will now click on G+ and you might get to see the image (and any text I want to add) on their feed. Keep an eye out ....

      You can email me if you have any questions - I will try to answer as best I can. Address is on my profile.

    2. Muskaan, actually I also wanted to ask you your e-mail id but I don't dare. Really it is very good idea if you give me your mail id.
