First of all - tomorrow will be the final part of this year's TIAS.

Now today I'm going to introduce you to Margaret who has been making baubles for years. I've added her to the exclusive club which you can find on the tab at the top of the page.


"She says:-
"Right, Jane, nice sunny day here at the moment and I've been able to get a reasonable photo for you.
The hedgehog was made, about 10 years ago, at a tatting weekend, from a Shuttle Brothers pattern.
The bee, tatted as part of the Tatters Across Time course, was done about 5 years ago. After all the talk of tatted baubles on your blog, I got busy and did a whole bunch to add to purses for presents!
They sure are fun and the possibilities are endless!
Thank you for including me in your Exclusive Tatting club.
Margaret"

  2. I would love to do some of the solid bodies like you have here, but I can't find any instructions. Do you have any links I can look at?

    1. The technique was invented by the (sadly) late Bobbie Demmer who asked me to host her pages some years ago. Here's the link http://janeeborall.freeservers.com/TipsBaubleBobble.html Her good friends Gary and Randy Houtz then took the idea a stage further and produced their book which can be found here http://www.gr-8shuttles.com/tatting_gr8_baubles.shtml It's an amazing book and exceptionally good value for the money.

  4. Is the hedgehog in the book? That might be the fellow that makes me finally splurge on a copy!
