Rugged Tatting

My son picked up a stone on the Jurassic coast and wanted to make a necklace out of it.  He wasn't happy with the cord he first used and then his sister gave him some waxed cotton cord but he thought it was too thin.  So I suggested that I tat the waxed cotton.  I thought a lock chain would make a nicely shaped cord for his necklace. 

We think it looks pretty good!

I hope you all had a nice summer.  I've been travelling quite a bit and not posting very much!  But I hope you've all enjoyed lots of creative projects and some lovely weather.  Can't believe it's September already.

Best wishes,


  1. That looks fabulous!!! :)

  3. Brilliant solution and a son who wants some tatting, lovely stone from Dorset. Yes it does not seem possible its September and its lovely we had some real summer, I hope you had a good summer travelling

    1. Thank you Margaret, yes I think it's rather lovely to have a son wearing some of my tatting... although to be honest, like that, it doesn't look too much like tatting really but just like a nice textured cord. Good summer yes, thank you and I hope you did too!
