Are you ready for some more tatting giveaway fun?! I am! And I love this month’s sponsor and prize. I’ve shopped at Be-Stitched Store for years, and am thrilled that Nancy was gracious enough to donate a signed copy of her pattern book for a lucky reader.
Nancy Tracy’s book, Tat’s Where I Stopped, A Year of Tatted Bookmarks, is a fun exploration of tatting throughout the year. There are 12 patterns, one for each month, with a seasonal theme. My personal favorite is the pencil for September, as I always loved the thrill of gathering supplies to go back to school.
The patterns are presented with written instruction AND diagrams, so whichever way appeals to you, you can follow along. I like that the patterns are presented clearly and are easy to read. I also appreciated that they are fun designs that beginners can do—no fancy techniques required.
Here are some of the designs. They run the gamut, from mittens to an Easter egg to a baseball and bat. Isn’t that rainbow and pot of gold so cute?!
Nancy was kind enough to send me a copy as well so I can try these out. I’m working on the pumpkins right now—it is October after all. I’ve been swamped lately but hopefully I’ll have something to show you in a few days.
There is also a sunflower, snowflakes, hearts, even a sun bonnet. So many creative bookmarks.
Buy it! Visit Be-Stitched Store and pick up a copy for only $17.95. Don’t forget to check out Nancy’s huge selection of pattern books, shuttles, needles, thread, and other tatting accessories.
