Dear Reader,
I share here what I like and what works for me. If you've been following me, you know that I can change my mind from time to time, and feel free to comment that I'm completely wrong, you may be right. I'm not running a business. I'm not paid and have never received any compensation or facilitation for any review/brand/site here mentioned. In case one day we'll ever meet, I'll be the one offering you a cup of Italian coffee, too.

granny squares - piastrella n. 8

That is another square. (You might want to have a look at the whole set "granny squares" on flickr). I'm naming all these as "quad_xx" because in Italian square is "quadrato" (and "piastrella" means tile). I've little imagination for names, isn't it?
Color scheme: primary colours. (I've just played with my iphone changing tones. Very fast but only virtual reality! Sigh!)
Techniques: SCMR and split rings.
It is only one round, worked with 2 shuttles filled with DMC #80 thread color 666 (red) and the variegated is Perfect Quilter, that is part of the great treasure sent by Fox, I don't know which color number is.

Questa piastrella fa parte di un set di foto su flickr, se volete potete seguire il link "my tatting" in alto a destra. Le sto semplicemente numerando, ho poca immaginazione per i nomi!
Lo schema per i colori: colori primari della luce.
Tecniche: anello su falso anello e anello spezzato - o catena di anelli  (Self Closing Mock Ring e Split Ring, ci sono i video di Karen e i pdf di Jane Eborall!)
E' un solo giro, lavorato con 2 navette, una col rosso 666 della DMC, filo #80, l'altra col filo variegato che fa parte del tesoretto spedito generosamente da Fox, non so il numero né il colore.



  1. Very pretty. So, you tatted it in red, and painted parts of it in other colours? That's a great idea!

    1. Sorry Grace, I know that my english is not good! In the big photos there's real tatting, with 2 threads: red and variegated. Then, in little pics there're modified pictures.

  2. I love granny squares and have played around a bit with them and tatting. you are doing a much better job with the squares than me.

  3. Hi, I am very happy for your new blog! I like your tatting ago. Have always a good idea. Thank you for the popularity :-)
