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.

quad_24, a photo by ninettacaruso on Flickr.

Motif  inspired by the mystery doily (phrase copied from previous post!).
To break the habit, I've a plan: one hanky - I'm playing with a new edging - and the doily "Under An African Sky" by Janemactats - joining the invitation to the tatting fun by Umi&Tsuru.

But in the meanwhile, a friend of mine asked an help to tat the beautiful seahorse (Medium Sized Seahorse) designed by Jane Eborall. I asked her permission for writing a tutorial here in my blog and she kindly gave her consent. She is so generous. You can find her pattern here:
Before starting it, from her "Tips and Techniques" page, I suggest to refresh how to add a bead to the centre of a ring, that will be on hand for the eye of the seahorse: Adding Bead to Centre of Ring
I think that it will be the only tricky point of that pattern.

It's a wonderful pattern, it lays flat perfectly, no need to be stiffened and it seems you're drawing it with your thread. I love her unique style.
I'll post the tutorial starting from next post. THAT WILL BE IN ENGLISH AND IN ITALIAN.



Thank you very much for all your nice comments.
