What am I doing?

What am I doing at the moment?  OK, funny guys, I know I'm sitting in front of the computer but what I REALLY meant is what am I doing tatting wise.

I'm working on hats.  Small, flat hats.  I've done 3D ones in the past (they're on my site somewhere) but I was asked if I knew of a flat one.  I went round and round the internet to try and find one already 'out there'.  I couldn't and I know there are some somewhere.  SO disappointing.  

The lady who asked was so sweet that I then thought that I could try and make one.  Of course, me being me, I start on one and then have ideas for another!!!

One is done.  It will be 'card sized', I think.  The second one is rubbish so will be re-vamped again this evening.   I'll show you the first one but I'm quite ashamed of the second.  Actually I'll show you that when I've (hopefully!!!!) improved it!!!!

  4. Hi Deanna - it's a number 20 thread and the finished hat measures a tad over 1 1/2" across. The next one will be brooch sized and on a button. That's IF it doesn't get thrown out of the window shortly!!!!

  5. Perfect for the Red Hat Society ladies. My cousin Trudy is a Queen of her "hive" of RH gals…When you turn loose of the pattern (LOL) OR (hint) if you list them on ETSY, I could buy one! There are a lot of Red Hat Women out there. It's not my cuppa; but, we all march to our own drum. I really like what you came up with in your pattern!

  6. There is a saying that goes like this "red hat no knickers"! Hats off to you Jane for another great design.

  7. Ridgetatter - the pattern will be out once I've conquered the other two that brain cell 3 is holding onto!!!
    Sally - now you've got the whole universe thinking I don't wear knickers!!!! For the Americans reading this - knickers is the same as 'underwear'!!!!!! BUT I DO wear knickers to keep me warm!!!!!

  8. tatting a red hat is not "being" a red hat... Don't get Jane's knickers in a knot or she will NEVER be able to wrap her remaining brain cells around what she wants to do!!! And I admit- my jaw dropped wide open when I read Sallys comment... lol... roflol... wait till I share that tidbit with my red hat friends....
