Embroidered Tatting

I will be a bit less active on the web these coming months as I'll be busy with my studies!  I'm also enjoying having the chance to learn new software that will enable me to have a go at using an electronic embroidery machine.  Of course, all I could think of was that I wanted to see some tatted lace embroidered.  I chose my Quatrain pattern and drew it using the program.  I selected a satin stitch surrounded by a back stitch to try to simulate the look of double stitches.  Not sure how it will turn out but I hope to be able to get it embroidered next week.  Can't wait to see what it will look like!  Now I need to choose what fabric to embroider it onto...

And then of course, it will be easy to just copy it over and over to make a lacy fabric.


I hope the start of autumn is proving to be beautiful and enjoyable for you, wherever you are.

Best wishes,


  1. I can't wait to see your project!! :)
    I love the Quatrain fabric!! :)

  2. Awesome ! Eager to see it take shape :-)

  3. That is exciting. I hope you’ll find the time to show us the result, would love to see it.

  4. This is exciting! Looking forward to seeing how your machine embroidery project turns out!

  5. Wow! This is fascinating! Best of luck with your studies, you'll be brilliant. But hopefully we'll still see some tatting too?

  6. Your Quatrain plan is tantalizing! Can't wait to see how you use it.
    Is your Quatrain tatting pattern still available? When I try to access it from your Patterns page GoogleDocs tells me I don't have permission, but I don't see it in your shop, either.

    1. eureka! I found your pattern on craftree!

    2. Hi Elizabeth, sorry I hadn't had a chance to reply yet. It's on Craftree? I didn't even know. I'm afraid I don't know why you couldn't access it though my patterns page... I shall try to investigate and find out why. It should be an open permission for anyone to download the patterns from those pages. Anyway, hope you enjoy it! :-)

    3. You are very kind. I am sure I will enjoy your pattern, as I have had so much pleasure learning from your YouTube videos and tatting other patterns you have written. Many thanks to you.

  7. This sounds really interesting and I look forward to seeing all your new creations
