Crazy Quilting wk 17 ~ Tatting ~ Crochet

What should I show you first this week?
How about the little birdie on the "E" monogram, updated this week with a flourish of floral vine twirling away in the background, and the little birdie now has a 'body' to help it sing its little heart out.
It is a fabric patch on my "Straight From the Heart" crazy quilt.
Simple, yet effective. I hope Emma likes what I did with her initial for inclusion on the quilt.

And here is a crochet flower motif. My own design
This is also going on the Heart Quilt.

 Tatting Update
 I have been practicing my tatting once more and made this motif. 
Still wonky, still mistakes, still learning, lol.

And..... for those of you who didn't get to see my excitement on Facebook....

Hold your ears while I sing a loud WAHOOOO.....
(American friends insert 'Ye Haaaa' if you wish)....

....... I ....... CAN ....... TAT .......

Oh my goodness, I can tat. At last. I finally get 'IT'.
Good old Percy did it again.
(Percy = perseverance)
Lesson learnt. See, you CAN teach an old dog new tricks.
I've had a great week.
I wonder what the next seven days will bring.


  1. Congratulations! I'm cheering for you too. Tatting continues to evade me so I will just happily admire yours.

  2. I love your "E"! Good job on the tatting, too.
