I am not sure why me email came though twice!!  Your video was very helpful Linda, Masny thanks, - and also thank you for the free pattern I just downloaded - the Classic Doily Patten.  I Love it, and will have a go at it as soon as I finish my current project.

Your tatting is beautiful.

I have a video demonstration on how to make clunies on YouTube. You will find the link for it on my blog www.toptattyhead.blogspot.com
I hope this helps anyone who is struggling.

We are at the same point when doing these Cluny's.    I have made them before in BL, but a long time ago now.  I've never tried them in tatting.

I am hoping to learn the Cluny Petal tatting this year.  I can make them in my sleep - just about- in Bobbin Lace, and I understand the weaving part, - but working out the framework over the fingers looks to me to be the hard bit - and then drawing up the threads at the end!!!  I am very stubborn and determined,  so I am sure I will stick with it, and get it going - I hate to be beaten - especially by just a length of thread!!

Any helps will be appreciated!

Cluny pedal tatting is a main project for this year.  Couple more weeks and I'll be set to go.  Hope is there is more found on the history of it.

Searching for the earliest mention of cluny petal tatting. The info on Mimi's great page has already been harvested. Anyone know of an earlier date?
