Renulek’s 4th Round

Changed the palette.

Such a fun design. LOVE Renulek’s patterns.

Jane's T.I.A.S. 2015 Thanks again, Jane. You rock!

NOW back to finishing the ever-expanding Mirimoto. 
But doesn't it look nicely enhanced with Gian and red roses?


I had to remove the baby's breath... 
Did you know it can be fatal to cats if eaten?

I know I am obsessed with constantly whittling things down, but I must show you what I have managed to do in about 6 months. The pictures speak for themselves.

Also, I have re-homed a large pile of hidden-away-in-the dark-recesses-of-a-cupboard completed tatting pieces!

Feels very much like spring cleaning, in a wicked stretch of record-breaking cold temperature weather!


This kind of post is not just me mouthing off. Really! I make use of tat-ology as a recorded history of my tatting journey.

Occasionally, about three times a year, I send off a chunk of posts to blog2print to have a booklet printed.

Eventually, realistically, for my kids, these and not my body of work will be more valuable! So far, there are ten books, beginning at day one of my life as Fox at tat-ology.

And Bob’s your uncle.

  1. I love the doily pictures and her patterns seem stress free. Thank you for the information on the blog printing I did not know that existed and would love to do that. I don't have cats now but I had herd that about the certain plants when I was young and mom raised Siamese cats.

    1. Siamese cats are wonderful! So are Burmillas. Love both breeds.

      Yes, you have to be very careful as there are a lot of common flowers and plants that can be of danger to cats. : )

      They are stress free! That’s why I enjoy them so much.

  4. Your tatting is always so pretty, but throw in some roses and that handsome guy you live with and . . . well . . . it raises everything to a whole new level! :) Good to know about baby's breath! I had been looking to possibly growing some myself, but that wouldn't be good when I get a new kitty one of these days!

  5. Wait--you're doing 2 Renuleks at once!? I can't believe how fast you are! They both look great, and as always, Gian is so handsome!

    1. Here? Same Renukex, different background! I ditched the fushcia one - gave it away today to a knitter friend who loves and appreciates it. : ))

  6. The doily looks lovely with the roses and Gian! I didn't know that about baby's breath. I've had cats for years but never had any trouble - maybe I was just lucky. I've thought several times about doing books of my blog posts, as, like you, it's my record to myself of what I've done. I just need to DO IT!

  8. I like your VSC! And isn't MR G well behaved? All the cat-owners I know, cannot keep flowers! Their pet feline jumps on top of them.
    Happy birthday Fox!

  11. I do like your new color combo for Renulek's doily... very soothing colors! I really need you to come visit me for a year, or at least the summer, to help me get my stash(es) under control. I just don't think I can be ruthless!

  12. Your doilies both look terrific- love the new colors. I'm almost done with this latest round of Renulek doily, but have an unjoined ring to open - gah!

    I had forgotten about the baby's breath - also toxic to dogs. Thanks for the reminder :)

  13. I do like the new colours for the Renulek. I've decided not to tat along that one now, but I look forward to seeing how yours and everyone else's develop.
