I hesitated before posting again because I thought "ain't got no" new tatting to show you. Have you ever listen the song? It's something lovely that can make your day: Nina Simone - Ain't Got No...I've Got Life
But I've tatted, indeed!
Then I've played around the little glass bauble. Recently, a friend lets me take photocopies of her mother's old "il chiacchierino n.1". There are some nice little motifs, for example there's one that is often seen these days, a diamond pattern with 4 trefoils facing outside, a "never-out-of-fashion" appeal! There's also the classic wheel pattern found in Elgiva Nicholls' book "Tatting - technique and history". I used that basic pattern for the bottom and added only another round of rings. Thread is dmc, gold n.282 and red Special Dentelles wound up together (HWT, as it's called by Jane Eborall).
Initially I thought about a single post, but realized it's better to divide photos in groups. So, my "ain't got no" became "I've got more"! Absolutely true, we've got our hands!
P.S. if you are near Rome in July and want to come and join the fun, here's the link to the attendance -only Italian- form (relax, there's nothing to be payed!): http://agofilofuselli.altervista.org/formiscrizione.htm
