Summer Fun

It's summer here on the farm. It was 93F (34C) in the car this morning and 102F (39C) on the porch this afternoon. I thought I would never say this, but it is too hot to tat! Just winding my shuttle made me break out in a sweat.. oh no.. ladies do not "sweat", we just get all "dewy." So why not take some time out for a little fun today. (Note: If it is cold where you live, then tat away!)

Here is a little word game. The list of topics below will suggest words that are used in our own tatting word game. Each word will be at least 5 letters or more long. And, your guess may NOT have any spaces, dashes or other strange characters. Even proper names must be typed like this: georgiaseitz, or shuttle tatting becomes shuttletatting. Remember, when you play the game, only type in letters. Unscramble the letters!


1. Using left hand and right hand and a needle this technique will double your stitches.
2. Double stitches come in pairs of single stitches.
3. This tatter got a patent, first ever for tatting technique.
4. Dagmar made one looking like a butterfly.
5. This tatter published her first needle work book at twelve!
6. DMC is a competitor.
7. Some tatters use their hand but others use a loom for this technique.
8. This method holds a tunnel in it.
9. This is not a dance move.
10. This is also the name of a dog breed.
11. This tatter tatted with a queen.
12. The more of these, the more frivolous the lace is.
13. This technique hides in a tunnel.
14. These come in purple, blue, red and green.
15. Flower without scent.
16. One tatter is famous for her third one of these.
17. This tatted element is named for an Empress.
18. A ring is not always round, but...
19. This is not a two-step dance.
20. If you make one of these, your tatting doesn't slide!

Those are some good hints but give it a try first. Keep the hints open in a separate window while unscrambling the words. Good Luck.

BTW..I am always looking for patterns or ideas for articles for the tatting website, so I welcome your ideas and suggestions. Is there a topic that has not been covered in the tatting articles or newsletters? Please let me know.
