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.

Renulek's doilies

Just two in my personal list, but very pretty and beautiful patterns!
In the next pic there's the Wiosna 2016 under the newer Wiosna 2017, that is a little smaller, diameter is 30cm in size 80 thread.

I had a lot of fun playing with rounds and colours! Thank you very much, Renata!

Her patterns are in her blog ( and also listed in her shop.

I put a picture in my album in Flickr, too.


This time I put aside the phone and took a real camera to take photos. It's not a great camera, almost self-acting, I'd only have to push the button. I set the close up and tried it on flowers. That is the verbena in my balcony, did you know that the name of this flower is the same in Italian? I've just learnt it! I also discovered that in Wikipedia there is a "List of English words of Italian origin", very interesting, and they even wrote that the list is incomplete!

    Pretty flowers!! :)

  3. Really beautiful! I liked the way you experimented with different ways of tatting Renata's pattern, goes to show there's more than one way of tatting a pattern. I like verbena, they grow here too.

  4. Gorgeous and beautiful doilies
    A lot of plant names are in Latin and many words come from itialian after all the Romans did come to Great Britian and lived here for many many years so that's why itialian has mingled with old English.

  5. Just beautiful!! I just discovered your blog and have it bookmarked. Love your beautiful tatting!
