TTT.Fergeal gets a present!

Remember me telling you that there was something extra in the giveaway package from TypsTatting.
It was a little square package wrapped in tissue with a letter attached,
I was just reading the letter when up popped Fergeal by my side.....I swear these leprechauns are psychic.
He read the letter over my shoulder and then hopped down to examine the package.
The letter read...
This little quilt is for the leprechaun in your life.
For the cold nights and  sitting watching the television.
To share if he wants or just to enjoy!
He had it opened in an instant, he laid it out on the floor and popped under it.
Isn't it just gorgeous. he wants to say a big thanks to TypsTatting.

A couple of little voices were heard to say.....
did we hear that something was to share...
And before you could say leprechauns knees, they were under the quilt too.

talk about cozy!
And then....
He had another idea....
Lets try it over our knees sitting on the Typs Tatting meant.

And then he had an even better idea....
Instead of getting under it, let's get on top of it..
it would make a wonderful carpet! and make my little space so cosy.
Just look how the colours match my sofa, he said, she must have seen my sofa before!

And so that was his decision, he called the lads to bring some more chairs and a tea table and some tea,
and they did. They all sat down to enjoy Tatting Tea Tuesday, Tadgh was all ready to pour the tea from Fergeal's BEST teapot.
lets take a birds eye view

isn't that just perfect for a leprechaun party.
along came my friend Jackie
with her tea service!!
Isn't that just something. It's from Martha Ess's Teapot book, she is just such a clever designer...and Jackie is such a clever tatter.
The set is sitting on the top of my coffee cup.

Well the lads heard about it and in an instant they had cleared Fergeal's tea set off the table onto the floor and demanded to have Jackie's one instead!

The lads were over the moon....but it is tatted in my Coral Reef HDT and Fergeal says that it just doesn't go with his decor!!
Now he wants me to make one to suit his colour scheme....any ideas....not that he is going to get one anytime soon!
The three lads think that their life is going very smoothly at the moment and wish to continue to be kept in the manner that they have become accustomed to!
As for me, I finally completed my 7th TAT excercise  on my 4th attempt and even that one has one ring slightly bigger than the others....I just know they will spot that and knock a mark off... drat. My 3rd attempt was perfect apart from a  mistake of monstrous proportions. I just can't do it again.
5 more projects to go.
So no tatting of mine to show you today.


  1. This is just enchanting! Such fortunate little leps to have such a creative, thoughtful tatting friend. Thank you for sharing ~ clever lass.

  2. What a lovely gift for you and for the three leprechaun chappies. They do look tickled to have received a gift!

    As for the color of the new tatted tea set? My first thought was to make it the color of the blanket border, but you are so wonderful with color that I'm sure you will choose the perfect one.

  3. Loved your post! Your leprechauns are living it up now with such a fancy tea set. How cute the tatted tea set is. And the quilted piece by TypsTatting is Beautiful!~!

  4. LOL! Ahhh...the life of a leprechaun! How good it is!

  5. So glad that the Leprechauns loved there Quilt, and that they had fun trying out different ideas!!!

  6. I think Rainbow lite would be the PERFECT colour for the lep's new teaset! - what a gorgeous quilt, I admire those who are able to make them. Sewing has never been something I have ever enjoyed, although I made a lot of clothes when my children were small in the seventies.

  7. What a cosy little sight all the leprechauns having tea. That is a lovely little quilt square, how kind of typstatting to make it and include it in the parcel.

  8. Fergel and his fellow leprechauns sure look comfy under their quilt, but it does make a very nice rug under his couch and chairs instead, and Jackie's tea set is amazing!

  9. Hi All, these leps are soooh spoilt, never know what they will want next! They do stop life from being boring!

    Maureen that will be beautiful, can't wait to see it.

    Jackies tea set is just amazing.

  10. Oh, lovely little blankey, quilty, ruggy thing! I bet the lads are in lep-heaven..Nice!
