Tatted green hummingbird

This is my first try at tatting this hummingbird pattern by Sherry Matthews. It is still missing its distinctive long beak which I have yet to make but you can see that it is a bird. I had to do a lot of unpicking because I kept reading the pattern wrong. I finally finished the body, wings and tail. I am going to try tatting it in another colour combination and see how it looks, maybe dark grey and blue.


  1. Hi Wendy~
    Your hummingbird is incredible!!! Please show the other ones as you complete them. Oh, by the way, your pictures of Singapore are beautiful. I enjoy your blog each day.
    Blessings, Lana

  2. Thank you Lana. I will post the hummingbirds as they are ready. I am so pleased that you enjoy my photos of Singapore. There are many interesting buildings. I haven't had time to photograph them.

  3. I just discovered this beautiful blog. I love all of the tatting and darling little dolls, especially Princess Olivia who combines both. The hummingbird is spectacular.

    I plan to visit oftnen

  4. Welcome Annie!! I'm glad you enjoy the dolls. I just peeked at your blog. Come back soon.
