I submitted my manuscript for the competition – via snail-mail, no less.
It’s more years than I like to think of since I submitted this way. It’s a LOT more fuss. Which may be why some (very few) publishers still prefer it. Perhaps they are hoping not to be inundated…
I’m still working on the miniature tatting – back to working on the dolls’ house bedspread that I was doing a year or so ago. I designed it myself – not very well – and ran into problems. Hopefully I will be able to bully it into submission.
Note the various attempts at an edging…
Fingers are crossed that you win!
Thanks! At least I gave it a try… 😉
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Wishing you All the best with the competition! And the doll bedspread looks adorable 🙂 Are all those ends to be weaved in later?
Oh yes. A couple of books I’ve read recommend sewing the ends in after it is finished, so they don’t work loose while you are tatting.
I want to learn how to tat but it looks so complicated to me. Your work looks so delicate.
It’s not complicated once you get the hang of the double stitch. There are loads of videos and resources to help. It’s also better to start with thicker thread so it is easier to see what you are doing.
http://www.craftree.com/ is dedicated to tatting and very helpful. There is also an online tatting class – they have a beginners section.
Give it a try! 😉
Oh oh, all the best to you. 🙂
Thanks! I’ll take all the help I can get…
Thanks! I need all the help I can get…

It’s so beautiful!
How is your “rose” coming along?
I am still stuck. I want to take photos of what I am doing and let you see. I will send you an e-mail when I get a chance.
Good! Hope to see it soon.
