Yay, this is my first posting of a project.  I'm a tatter (lacemaker) and today I made a tatted beaded button medallion.  It doesn't even look like lace anymore with all the extra frills, but I thought it looked pretty. 

Color is misrepresented (the beads are actually violet), but you can see the sparkle:


Here is a better show of the color:


I know this isn't much, but it's a start.  I'll post my somewhat more impressive projects when I get to them.  Thanks for looking!

Tatting! Yay!
I don't have the patience to tat properly anymore, I kinda stopped when  I had to learn to tat squares for a "bigger" project... but I intend to resume it! some day

Those are really nice and pretty, I love tattings with beads.
Generally I prefer the colors of the "colder" one, but I think the brownish one looks the best. Really great job. Smiley

Thank you everyone!   Smiley

Oh, I urge you to take it up again...the world needs more tatters!  Squares, hmm?  I don't know how to do that.  But it sounds intriguing.

The world certainly does ^^
If you haven't seen it yet, this is a great tatting-site, for links to free patterns and stuff
http://www.bellaonline.com/site/Tatting

I think I found the squares-instructions on that site, but I'm not sure. I can't seem to find it atm.  Undecided If I remember it correctly, you chaintat a few knots, then you make a .. well, I think a picot, which you attach to a safety pin.. then you work the chain in the opposite direction so to speak, and then attach it at the "start" of the chain.. then make a picot, attach it in a safety pin, and turn again, until you attach in your first picot there.. um... I'm not quite sure. But it looks cool. Smiley

That's what I like to hear! 

Tatting is one of simplest of needleworks to learn.  There is only one type of knot (double stitch) and only two major configurations (the ring and the chain). 

All you need is some thread, a flattened spool called a shuttle, and a small crochet hook.  You can also use a tatting needle.  There are plenty of free patterns on the net as well as free instructions. 

Here are some links to guide you:

http://www.geocities.com/tatrasutra/home.html (good illustrated and clear written directions--my fave site!)

http://www.gagechek.com/slb/ (a live animated gif showing the motions of tatting)

http://tatting.bellaonline.com/Site.asp (a wealth of info...but very few pictures)

I LOVE to tat...it's a sickness really, so don't say I didn't warn you!  Wink
