The Quimper Hitty human found some lace at an estate sale…

Shawl?

Shawl?

Tatty enthusiastically wheedles – she thinks it might make a nice shawl!

Skirt?

Skirt?

or possibly a skirt…but the Quimper Hitty human is strangely reluctant to cut up the lace!

Tatty's Trinket

Tatty’s Trinket

 Tatty is mollified when the Hitty’s favourite photographer produces a trinket he bought specially for her –  now she thinks she might have a go at making tatted lace herself!

  1. Tatty, good luck with your lace making project. I myself am trying (very very trying) to master needle tatting.
    Great pics and wonderful lace!! And that little shuttle is so precious.

  2. Tatty, I’m glad that you are from a curious and inquiring cupboard. It’s so nice to see such a huge variety of interests from your cupboard.

  3. With a name like Tatty, I can quite see why you love the idea of using the lace for your own garments, but perhaps you could learn to make some yourself whith your beautiful shuttle. Our Person’s grandma used to tat and we might have some of her work somewhere. We will get our larger friend, Clara, to look as she is in charge of searching for and caring for older items around the Person’s home.
    Love,
    Roberta Not-Quite-Hitty xx

    • Constance has a very nice scrap of tatting on her favourite dress and Tatty has that nice scrap of blue that a Hitty friend gave us…We are now on the lookout for scraps that I have the nerve to attack with scissors!

  4. It seems that Tatty deserves a few nice things. I hope she finds some time to learn to tat now that she has a shuttle. Or perhaps she can use it to make a fishing net and help feed the QH family.

  5. Hi! I have been visiting your bog for several weeks and am quite charmed by your sweet Hitty girls & happenings. The tatting is gorgeous! What a lovely find. Blessings!
