Purple Goose

Name: Purple Goose
Pattern: Jane Eborall

Materials: Cotton tatting/crochet thread, size 70
Method: Shuttle; rings, split rings, and chains
Time: 3 hours

Finally, I made something that is not jewelry! I gave it to my brother, because he loves geese, especially Canada geese. His nickname is “Goose.” This goose is one of Jane Eborall’s patterns, which can be viewed here: Thanks, Jane, for this excellent pattern! It is easy to make, quick, and simple, but not boring. I adapted it to be a Canada goose instead of a white goose. There is a small purple ribbon around the goose’s neck, and I used a blue bead for the eye. Also, the thread for the feet and beak is a dark navy blue, but it is very difficult to distinguish from the black thread, because it is very dark. My cat begrudgingly posed with the goose for a picture.
Nom: Oie Pourpre
Modèle: Jane Eborall
Matériels: fil de coton, taille 70
Méthode: navette; anneaux, anneux brisés, et chaînes
Temps: 3 heures

Finalement, j’ai fait quelque chose que n’est pas bijoux ! Je l’ai donné à mon frère, parce que il aime les oies, en particulaire les oies du Canada, et son sobriquet est « Goose ». Cette oie est un modèle de Jane Eborall ; on peut le voir ici : Merci, Jane, pour le modèle très excellent ! Il est facile pour faire, assez vite, et simple, mais non ennuyeux. Je l’ai adapté pour être une oie du Canada au lieu d’une oie blanche.  Il y a un petit ruban violet sur le cou de l’oie, et j’ai utilisé une perle bleue pour l’œil. Aussi, le fil pour les pieds et le bec est bleu marine foncé, mais on ne peut pas le distingué très bien de le fil noir ; ils sont similaires. Mon chat, sans enthousiasme, a posé avec l’oie pour obtenir un foto.

The love of my life...l'amour de ma vie...el amor de mi vida...l'amore di mia vita...

Nombre: Ganso Morado
Patrón: Jane Eborall
Materiales: hilo de algodon, talla 70
Método: naveta; anillos, anillos partidos, y cadenas
Tiempo: 5 horas

¡Finalmente, hizo una cosa que no es joyería! Se lo di a mi hermano, porque le gusta gansos, especialmente los gansos de Canadá, y son apodo es “Goose.” Este ganso es un patrón de Jane Eborall, que se peude ver sobre esto link: ¡Gracias, Jane, por tu patrón muy excelente! Es fácil, rápido, y simple, pero no es aburrido. Lo adapté a ser un ganso de Canadá, in lugar de un ganso blanco. Hay un poquito listón morado sobre su cuello, y utilicé una perla azul por un ojo. También, el hilo por los pies y el pico es azul marino oscuro, pero no se puede distinguir mucho diferencia entre esto hilo y el negro. Los dos hilos están muy similares. Mi gato regañadientes posó con el ganso para una foto.

Nome: Oca Porpora
Modello: Jane Eborall
Materiale: filo di cotone, taglia 70
Metodo: navetta, anelli, divise anelli, e catene
Tempo: 5 ore

Finalmente, ho fatto una cosa che non è gioielli! Ho dato a mio fratello, perché gli piacciono le oche, in particolare le oche di Canada, e sono soprannominato è "Goose." Questo modello d'oca è da Jane Eborall, che si può vedere su questo link: Grazie, Jane, per questa eccellente modella! È facile, rapido, e semplice, ma non è noioso. Io lo ho adattato essere un oca del Canada, al posto di un'oca bianca. C'è un nastrino viola al collo, e ha utilizzato un occhio azzurro perla. Inoltre, il filo che uso per i piedi e il becco è blu scuro, ma non si può dire molta differenza tra questo filo e il filo nero. I due fili sono molto simili. Il mio gatto malincuore posato con l'oca per una foto.


  1. Wonderful rendition of Jane's goose, Canada style! I'm also enjoying reading your blog, since I recently discovered it! Many thanks for visiting mine, and it's interesting to know you are from Beaver County. Our group will be at Old Economy (Ambridge) this weekend!

    You really should join the 25-Motif Challenge! You have some excellent tatting to share with everyone. I'm very impressed with your work - and your posts in several languages! Looks like you're having a one-year blogaversary coming up!

    1. Thank you so much! I won't be able to go to OEV this weekend, unfortunately. I will keep reading your blog to watch for upcoming events, and I look forward to meeting you!

  2. Ooooh, that goose is frighteningly like a real Canada goose. We have lots of them in this town and they're definitely not welcome as they take over from the swans. I try to re-direct them back where they belong which is anywhere but here!!! I love the ribbon round his neck!!!

  3. Great job on the goose, I hope your brother liked it. Jane has such wonderful patterns, I usually check there first when I'm looking for a special item to tat.

    Thanks for visiting my blog (Wandas Knotty Thoughts). You asked how I had hung the cards - I used Christmas ornament hooks. I could bend them easily to fit just how I wanted the cards to hang. The cooling wrack worked pretty well though a little small. Good luck with coming up with displays.

  4. wow!!!!!! bellissimo! complimenti!

    1. Grazie molto! Io so che il mio gatto e' bellissimo :D
