This Hobby Horse is one of Pam Palmer's designs. I think he is cute and I love her designs. I used Lizbeth thread 20. The eye is a disc just stuck on. The pattern has a tatted one but I quite like this.
This is another TIAS organised this time by Lady Shuttlemaker . It is a cute little train named the Piccadilly Express. She also gave us the pattern for some trucks and when they are tatted, I will post a photo of the complete train. Thank you Sherry, I know you are a busy lady.
I taught myself to tat from books, as a teenager, but had never met another tatter. Joining on-line groups has given me a new enthusiasm for the art, and enabled me to learn new techniques. I have even tried my hand at designing.
Any diagrams for working these tatted pieces are on my website www.handicrafts.org.uk
My stitching can be seen on Wendystitches.blogspot.com
