I had never heard of tatting until January this year when I saw it on someone's website one day. She had a short video of someone needle tatting and the lady on the video said that there were only 2 stitches and what little she did intrigued me. I started researching it on the internet and found several videos on youtube which were shuttle tatters and very informative and helpful.
I went and got a few supplies and tried it(first attempts looked great, but didn't have the flip), and then I got more supplies and tried more and more.
Tatting is relaxing as well as frustrating to me, and I love it. My family and friends all love what I have done and are encouraging.
I am very inspired by all the wonderful things I find on the 25 Motif Challenge and all the blogs I follow, and even some I see on others blogs.
I am very thankful for all the wonderful comments, compliments, and encouragement.
I am currently continuing work on the Curds and Whey project from Mary Konior's Tatting with Visual Patterns and am hoping to get it done within 3 weeks(I want it to be a collar trim). There are a few mistakes in it-miscounted stitches, but I like it anyway.
Hope that answers a few questions and if they are any more....just ask. :)
Have a blessed day all!
