Tatting day by day

Moraću da pređem na dvojezično pisanje.  To je prvo što moram svima da najavim.

One of the first things I have to say is that  I’ll have to start writing my entries bilingually. 

Neću reći da sam sad iskusna u tattingu, još sam daleko od toga, ali napredujem sve više i to me raduje.  Ima već dva meseca kako sam počela a učim tatting (mnogo više mi se dopada termin frivolite) i ne mogu vam opisati koliko je zadovoljstvo kada uspešno privedem kraju neki projekat. Za sad sam shvatila da mi je mnogo lakše da čitam vizuelne šeme. Naučila sam da radim sa dva kalemčića. A počela sam da pronalazim i radnje po Beogradu koje imaju konac koji mnogo više odgovara tatting-u od onog koji imam u zalihama.

I won’t say that I’m experienced tatter, far from it, but my skills are improving daily. I’m practicing tatting (I really prefer term frivolite) for two months now and I cant even begin to describe how satisfactory is to finish a project I’m working on. For now it’s much easier if I have visual pattern for my project. Also, I learned how to work with two shuttles. Ana, most importantly, I found some shops in Belgrade where I can buy some good yarns for tatting, better than I have in my house now.    

Trenutno sam uzela malo komplikovaniji projekat, tek da vidim da li sam “dorasla izazovu”, pravim Celtic bookmark. Za sada je sve još uvek u delovima i zahvaljujući podršci i savetima dama sa InTatters foruma napredujem lagano ali sigurno. Evo kako to izgleda u “radnoj fazi”…

I wanted to challenge myself with a bit complicated pattern so at this moment I’m working on Celtic bookmark. For now my work is still in parts, and thanks to support and advice’s that I get from ladies on InTatters forum my project is slowly advancing. This is how my “work in progress” looks like…

Zahvaljujući devojci koja ima blog Free Tatting Patterns uspešno sam napravila neke setove minđuša i ogrlica/chokera kao i neke narukvice.  Moram da naglasim da su svi moji radovi rađeni po njenim šemama i da nisu moj dizajn.

For now I successfully finished some sets of earrings, necklaces/chokers and bracelets, thanks to a girl that has blog Free Tatting Patterns . I must emphasize that all patterns for my works are taken from her blog and they are not my designee.  

  

Toliko od mene za sada. Nadam se da će ovo biti inspiracija još nekome (posebno u mojoj zemlji) i nadam se da će u budućnosti još devojaka početi da se interesuje i uči ovaj fantastičannačin izrade čipke kako bi smo mogli da se družimo, učimo zajedno, razmenjujemo iskustva i savete.

Well, that’s all for now. I’m hoping that some girls can find some inspiration in this to start learning this magnificent way of lace making (especially in my country)  so that we can learn together, exchange experiences and advice’s. 

Srećan tatting!

Happy tatting!
