Luck of the Scottish??(5/25)


Yes, I know that it should be Luck of the Irish, but my husband is Scottish :) And yes, I even have a kilt that I love!! This is my successfully shuttle tatted shamrock from Gina's pattern. I think that I might finally be getting the hang of it.


This is a doily that was recently passed onto me that I thought you might enjoying seeing. I don't know who tatted it, but the doily is just fabric with the ends tacked down.

  1. I have yet to tat a shamrock, and I should. Love the doily! I have similar pieces made by my great-grandmother, although hers are crocheted, not tatted. Very nice!

  3. Glad you're doing so well shuttle-wise with the shamrock! That doily is gorgeous and I'd guess it was a more recent doily, like within 10-12 years. Very nice. Thanks for showing it.

  6. What a cute doily. Love the edging pattern.
    Now see that I make too much trouble of making and edging fit exactly: what is wrong with sewing a bit ON the fabric! This shows it is no problem!!! It looks realy nice!
