200 posts! - blog anniversary and 100,000 visits!

Wow, I can't believe it! Thank you so much to everyone who visited and a big hug for all your support and encouragement, that keeps me motivated to tatting, because - you know - tatting is beautiful but if you can tat with your friend's help it is even more beautiful!

I won't run a giveaway but revised an old pattern that I hadn't yet put in Flickr, a butterfly that I designed in 2011 and that inspired a new design that I wish to tat before this Christmas. There are a lot of UFO in my bag, but maybe I'll bore you to beg a little encouragement, one more time again!

(Update: points marked as face inward picots, they are down sided joins instead. Sorry for this.)

I've plans to share a tutorial with photos to show how I tat that butterfly.

A giveaway? No I don't think so, I googled and found some sites where you are warned that it's similar to a contest and there could be a fine, a financial penalty, gosh... Mad mad world! (or better, I must say mad mad Italy!): http://www.ferri-e-uncini.com/2014/05/give-away-ecco-tutte-le-info-utili-per.html
 
About the last 2 days...

I met again those ladies from Bosa, they taught us a bunch of new stitches that I absolutely wish to incorporate in little doilies. That filèt lace is taking, I still don't know how much this could influence my tatting, but for sure they must live side by side in my craft space, they both need a lot of care!
But... what were they telling me to make me laugh in that way?
Ciao,
Ninetta

  3. Congratulations !!!! Well deserved appreciation & encouragement (even without a giveaway ;-P)
    Do post pics of your lacework, too.

    You're probably showing us the finger behind that beautiful lacework - hence the big big grin like the big bad wolf in red riding hood, eh ;-P

    Thanks for butterfly pattern. Maybe Carollyn & I can have a tat-along of butterflies sometime in future ?!

    1. Oh, Ninetta, I did Not mean to stress you out , although some huffing & puffing is always good for the lungs ;-P
      Sometimes my tongue (or should I say typing) gets out of control ... the reason I was referring to the big bad wolf grin was that you were 'teasing' us with a "giveaway that wasn't" ... nothing serious :-)
      And I so agree with all others that your giveaway continues in the form of your creative tips, solutions, & generous sharing of patterns.
      And please ignore any comment I make in future ;-D

    2. Oh no! Please go ahead, the second reason I started the blog it is to improve English, I'll always ask in case I cannot understand :-)

  5. Congratulations!! Actually, you're very generous in giving us patterns, and those don't need to be posted or worry about rules. I think we've all had a give away!

    1. Sorry Margaret, they always change their policy I can't keep up! Now they're asking to log into yahoo to download. If you mind, I can send you another link or you can wait a little, I'm going to post a tutorial in this blog. Leave a comment here, if you please.
