Lacy Bookmarks

 Good afternoon all.

First off, I have some exciting news to share. I've just reached 1000 followers over on my Instagram page! 😃 I'm so grateful for all the support I've received so far and look forward to sharing more of my creations in the future. Follow me there for something special this week. 😉 

I've been adding some more tatting to my Etsy shop.

The first one is my 'Janessa' bookmark design in white cotton thread:

Tatted lace bookmark in white thread.

This would make a lovely wedding favour. Bulk discounts and other colours are available. Feel free to contact me with your ideas. You can find it here.

I've also relisted my summer garden bookmark:

A multicoloured, summer inspired tatted lace bookmark.

This would make a lovely gift for the bookworm in your life or why not treat yourself. Find it here.

More to come soon.

Stay safe,

New Yarn!

Good afternoon. I hope you're all well.

 I have some new Etsy listings to share with you.

First up is 'Fuchsias' - a hand painted 4 ply / fingering weight cotton yarn in magenta and violet. Find it here.

I've also listed two skeins of 'Candy Floss and Clouds' - a super chunky / super bulky merino wool yarn in pink, purple, blue and white. This yarn is so soft and squishy! 😍 They are available here.

I'm currently photographing more squishy goodness and will have these available soon. Keep an eye on here, twitter, Facebook or Instagram for updates.

Stay safe,

New Tatting Pattern

Afternoon everyone. I hope you are well. I have a new original tatting pattern to share with you all.

'Annabelle' Snowflake Decoration

This intermediate pattern features diagrams for both left and right-handers, along with written instructions in English. Find it in my Etsy shop.

In other news, I'm working on my next textile Collection. This one will be sea themed and include tatted bookmarks, hand spun yarn and potentially lace jewellery (if I have enough materials). Here's part of it.

Follow me on Instagram for more sneak peeks. I'm not sure when it will all be ready but, in the meantime, I'm going to be doing a mini Shop Update this Friday.

Stay safe,

Heather xx

Shop Update Information

Afternoon. How is everyone doing in these strange times? I'm not too bad. As you probably noticed, I decided to scale back my Etsy shop in March to just my tatting patterns. What with the UK lockdown in progress, I was becoming too anxious to work on physical orders. For the past few months I've been trying to relax with other crafts, writing, reading and baking. I've also been working out a plan to get back into the swing of things. So, in this blog post, I intend to explain the changes for my shop.

The first major change, at least for the next few months, is that I will only be selling within the UK. This is due to a delay in shipments to other countries. Really sorry about that. Any items I list can be repeated, so don't worry, you won't be missing out on any One Of A Kind pieces.

The second change is in how I list creations. I normally add them as Made to Order but currently, I cannot guarantee that my suppliers haven't been impacted so instead, I will be tatting the items first and then listing them in batches. The first of these will be tomorrow at 5pm UK time in my Etsy shop.

The pieces will be a mixture of old favourites and new colourways and I will make sure they are all letterbox friendly.

Stay safe,
Heather xxx

Spinning in Progress

Good afternoon everyone. I hope you had a lovely weekend. 

I have decided to spend this week focusing on work in progress pieces. I have three loom knitting, many tatting and one spinning project to finish. Why do I always end up with several creations on the go at once lol. 

So here's my latest spindle spinning.

It's my first time spinning Blue Faced Leicester roving and I've thoroughly enjoyed it! I've just finished chain plying it and it's ready for a bath.

When we have better weather, I will be photographing my newly hand spun yarn and adding it to my website TataniaRosa.co.uk 

In other news I've relisted a pair of gothic lace dangle earrings in my Etsy shop here.

Have a nice Monday,
