Thanks, Trinity. I don't think I have found that bit by robin!  I have been too busy enjoying the patterns etc. I have had a go at the Magic Square - that was fun, and a very clever idea - but takes a lot of concentration..

I Must finish the 2 big pieces I have on the go, before starting anything new, though!!

Elizabeth, Robin (tattingbythebay) also has a fairly lengthy tutorial on how to design a tatted piece.  Really interesting stuff!

Yes, Trinity,l that is a Very good site. Another one with a Very good "Help" page is Jane Eborall's site. She has some nice hankie edging patterns, and lots of animal patterns, amongst others.  I enjoy working her designs.

I have a long list of bookmarked tatting sites!!!!!

I just discovered this tatting blog.  She has some amazing free patterns on the blog, and an Etsy shop with many more for purchase.

Dear Georgia:   Here is a link showing inverted tatting. However the instructions are for shuttle tatters. I am asking for how to do inverted tatting with a needle.

Many thanks!  Rosemary

Sometimes just dampening them with water is enough. But be sure to choose a sturdy thread, a six-cord mercerized cotton like Lizbeth is very good. Pearl cotton will not have the same body to it.

Give this a try for cluny practice:

I don't stiffen my bookmarks. My tatting is tight enough that they will hold their shape. Plus, being pressed between the pages of a book will help them retain their shape.

When I starch something like snowflakes, I use a diluted PVA glue to make them slightly stiff.

Do you stiffen your bookmarks, or leave them 'soft'?

If you stiffen them - what do you use?  How stiff do you make them?

(Those who know me, know I am always full of questions!!!!! :) )

I am still on a big learning curve, - and enjoying every minute of it. Also, tatting is so portable, so I can do it while sitting around here & there with DH...!!!  :)
