If you love tatted lace, jewellery, plants and anything handcrafted, come back often. I will regularly post items that are made by me, plants that I grow and interesting things that I photograph.

Decke 14 - Completed
This is a pattern by Ruth Scharf in her book Occhi. Such a sweet pattern and it isn't too difficult once you have mastered the leaves or Blatt.
Tatted in Milford Size 20, this doily measures about 10 inches across. I like how the chains form the flowers and there are lots of negative spaces. It looks like a 2-dimensional bouquet.

It's so beautiful! It seems as though you began it just the other day, and it's finished already!ReplyDelete
Just about fell off the chair! I was not expecting this as I thought there would be a picture of your painting escapades!ReplyDelete
WOW! This is truly sensational.
Is that the book we used before or another? After the doilies...?
That's beautiful. I like the contrast between the airy flowers and the solid leaves, and the swirly look of the whole piece.ReplyDelete
I love it! love the leaves, the colours... great job!ReplyDelete
I like it, it a gorgeous pattern even though it has a lot of open spaces but i think that's the joy of the pattern.ReplyDelete
Well done beautiful mat
It does like a 2D bouquet! I really like it! :o)ReplyDelete
This turned out wonderful. Karen in ORReplyDelete
Fresh as a daisy! This "mat" is exquisite. (I didn't dare say doily. These days it is almost a hateful word.) I agree with Maureen: it seems as though you whipped this up in a mere two or three days.ReplyDelete
How long did it take?
It did not take long to tat. The flowers are quick to tat. All in all it took me about a week. And this pattern is in the same book as the Tischband pattern.ReplyDelete
Thank you all for your lovely comments.
This photo jumps off the page, and your tatting is so perfect!ReplyDelete
This is very pleasing to the eye and quite unusual for a tatted piece! But then, Ruth definitely has a very unique sense of design and shows how versatile tatting can be! She apparently used tatting to 'mimic' Irish crochet. I'm curious about her own tatting history and how she developed this style. You definitely helped to introduce her to many tatters, with the Tischband tat-along. The color threads today very much enhance her designs!
