New week new project

New week new project.

Hello everyone! On June 17, my competition for the best name for tatting doily ended. Ah, how many beautiful names, how many kind words I received! It’s amazing! I am extraordinarily inspired. And after a wonderful weekend (I hope your weekend was also good!) I start my new week with a new project.

I decided to use an interesting technique for the center of this doily. It looks like bobbin lace, doesn’t it?

I want to call this doily “Wheel of Time”. Because the alternation of dense and airy rows reminds me of the running of time in our lives. I think each of you has come across “long” days when time goes on endlessly. And I know there are so “swift” days that fly by like an instant. This is the wheel of time that moves without stopping, then slowing down, then accelerating. Zoe Carbajales came up with this name. I hope she will not mind using this name for my new project.

Previous option

So, I did this project 7 years ago. And the previous version of this template looked like this.

Now I decided to slightly change the general appearance, changed the color and thickness of the threads. I’m very interested in your opinion on the title. Therefore write in the comments, please. Is the “Wheel of Time” suitable for this doily?

By the way, pay attention to the personalized shuttle that I use. Do you want one for yourself? Check out my store, please: https://fairylace.kozinenko.com/product-category/patterns-tutorials/tatting-tools/

You can also watch a video on my YouTube channel, welcome: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0zrZP-a6dQ&list=UU3dn4_9pp7tIKA2k564wLBQ

So, I will try to finish the pattern at the end of the week. Anyway, I will try! But after tat, I will need to draw a graphical diagram in a computer program, write instructions and mount a video tutorial. Yes, I plan to add a video to this manual. Do you think the video helps a lot? Or is it a waste of time? Oh, I’m talking about time again! Write your opinions in the comments.

How to make a personalized tatting shuttle

How to make a personalized tatting shuttle?

Hello everyone! My granddaughter graduated from second grade (all the marks are on top, of course!). After such a busy year, the child should rest, right? And now my Maria is relaxing about sea with her parents. Therefore, I can devote more time to my tatting.

I told in one of the previous posts how to choose tatting tools.https://fairylace.kozinenko.com/2019/10/18/how-to-choose-tools-for-tatting/

I admit, I like to use shuttles the most. I thought that there are many beginner tattoos and masters of this art who also love to use shuttles. And yes, I consider tatting art, do you agree? Therefore, I decided to create unusual shuttles. Let it be “lace for lace.”

So I thought, creating my first collection of shuttles.

These were shuttles with flowers using the tatting technique. There are 154 knots in each flower! To weave these mini pieces, I used the thin embroidery threads. This is part of my stock! I’m not a threadsholik ( ha-ha-ha! ), I just love different colors!

But how to make a personalized tatting shuttle? For this, initials are needed. Many attempts, a few torn threads, and as a result, a collection of personalized shuttles is ready, cheers!

Perhaps you will appreciate the filigree of my work by watching the video. I tried to show with what thin threads letters are made. Do not worry, my hands are not so scary really! This is a very close-up shot. https://youtu.be/qZP7IEWKJjQ

What color shuttles do you like more? Perhaps you have suggestions for choosing thread colors. Write in the comments which combination of shuttle and letter is your favorite. These may be unexpected and fresh decisions, I am sure!

You can see and buy ready-made shuttles in my store: https://fairylace.kozinenko.com/product-category/patterns-tutorials/tatting-tools/

Take care of yourself!
