Happy international tatting day! ~ ¡Feliz día internacional del frivolité!

April 1st is International tatting day. Not that I need a special day to tatt, show it off, and eat chocolate, but still, it is fun that there is a lot of activity in the on-line tatting world. Georgia is having two live chat sessions (3PM and 8:30 PM NY time) featuring patterns by Nina Libn, Sherry has released her latest book, Totus Mel has a special edition pendant for sale in her shop, Rachel (The Piney Woods Tatter) has a small free pattern on her blog, the Spanish Speaking tatting forum participants are showing off the March Easter egg challenge… And I there is much more, just click on any to the links and go to more tatting blogs to see how this is just a bit of the tatting fun!

Hoy 1ro de Abril es el día intenacional del frivolité. Noe s que me haga falta un día especial para frivolitear, compartirlo, y comer chocolate, pero lo divertido es que hay mucha actividad en la comunidad de frivolité en linea. Hay dos reuniones de chat planeadas por Georgia en el sitio de las clases en linea (a las 3PM and 8:30 PM hora d eNueva York), con patrones de Nina LibnSherry publicó un nuevo libroTotus Mel puso a la venta un colgante de edición limitada en su  tienda virtual, Rachel (The Piney Woods Tatter) publicó un simpático patrón gratuito en su blog,en el grupo Frivolité en Español está la galería de huevos de pascua del desafío de Marzo… Hay mucho más, es cuestión de empezar a recorrer los blogs de frivolité para darse cuenta que ¡esto es sólo un poquito de la diversión del día de hoy!

Personally, I am using some of my rainbow thread and a flat bead (like the ones here!) to try this pattern by Jane Eborall. I am having to tweak it a bit as the thread I chose is too thin… 

Personalmente, yo me decidí a probar las cuentas planas (¡como las que pueden ver  acá!) con el hilo arcoiris, y hacer  éste patrón de Jane Eborall. Elegí un hilo muy fino así que los estoy adaptando un poco…

So, happy tatting everyone! If you wish to take part in my giveaway, just leave a comment on the giveaway post. I am replying to comments as I approve them, I wonder if anyone is actually reading them…? I am really happy at having so many replies! (54 and counting!

Bueno, pues, ¡Feliz día del frivolité para todos! Recuerden que todavía pueden participar en mi sorteo, dejando un mensaje en esa publicación. Estoy contestando los mensajes a medida que los apruebo, me pregunto si los que se anotan lo ven…  ¡estoy muy feliz de tener tantas respuestas (54 hasta que empecé a escribir esto, pero creo que ya tengo otro más!)

      Thanks Diane! My pendant is rather fiddly in such thin thread, I may get about finishing or progressing in my other work in progress later today 😉

    Happy international tatting day to you,

    I put a piece on my blog but I did not get time to put the pattern on my pattern blog, which I am hoping to do over the next few days.

    I had a craft fair on the saturday which I did some tatting at my table, but I had a quite day yesterday as I have an eye infection so I needed to rest my eyes.

    I look forward to seeing your latest piece of tatting, I hope you managed to get a lot of tatting done yesterday

      Ooooh, a new pattern! Looking forwards to it!

      My piece it turning out cute! For a while I was afraid the thin thread was just not going to cut it, but I am halfway round the medallion and I am liking it. I will have to join more thread as I put just the amount written in the pattern and I had to add repeats to compensate for the thinner thread… but all is well, you know!

      I hope your eye is cured now – do take care!
