More Critters on the Block

I am pleased to announce that More Critters on the Block is now on sale. This is my third block tatting book, full of little motifs excellent for applique, card enclosures, earrings, etc.

While some of the patterns are fairly simple, many are more complex than those in the original book, New Critters on the Block. Quite a few use two colors, for more interesting, life-like critters.

Patterns are written for shuttle tatting. Patterns are text only, but include a clear up-close picture. (Diagrams just don't work well with block tatting.)

The book is digest size, 8 ½ x 5 ½ inches, and has 32 pages plus cover. There are 23 patterns in all: hummingbird, dolphin, koala, skunk, butterfly, ferret, dachshund, elephant, raccoon, turtle, sheep, lamb, rhinoceros, hornet, owl, giraffe, gecko, whale, bluebird, grasshopper, fox, alligator, and pig.

Here are a handful of the designs.

Despite the recession, we decided to keep the price at $10.00 plus shipping, like my other block tatting books. You can go to my site here for links to buy a single copy through PayPal. If you would like more than one book, email me and I can send you an invoice for reduced combined shipping. There is an address there too, for snail mail check or money order payment.

Up and Tat 'Em

This is my 2nd tatting pattern book - 28 pages, over a hundred color photos. Here's what is in it:
  • "Five Petal Pendant"
  • "Grand Aura" earrings
  • "Beguile" set of necklace, bracelet, and earrings
  • "Fancy Closures" (frogs)
  • "Atom" pendant
  • "Belle" pendant
  • "Wondrous Window" stained glass effect pendants (3 variations), bracelet (or bookmark), and earrings
This book is written from a shuttle tatter's point of view. My projects do tend to be a bit "off the beaten path" and challenging, so I recommend this book for folks who already know the basics of shuttle tatting. Available from my Etsy shop.
