Tatting to show

This isYarnplayer's Wondrous Window bracelet and pendant from the Up and Tat 'Em book.  
They are tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Black and Crochet4U2Dye4 HDT called Sacred Lotus.
  I made these for an 80 something year old Cambodian lady who speaks very little English and joins our little church group Sunday evenings.  On Easter Sunday she gave me the necklace on the right side of the picture(it's from Cambodia).  She was very insistent that I keep the necklace so I came home and made her this set and gave it to her last Sunday night.  The expression and response were priceless!!!  :)

Looks like you may be instructing someone on how to tat in the near future! The black outlining the color is always such a nice look! love it!

Lovely work. And what a lovely gesture :) does she tat?

God's Kid said...

Thank you all!!!
Madtatter80, no, I don't think that would be a possibility of teaching her, she speaks very little English and can't understand much, plus she has some dementia in her older age so a lot of times she doesn't even remember me till she sees me up close. But I love her lots!! :)
And wickedtats, no she doesn't tat. She just goes around with a shopping basket like a homeless person and smiles! :)

How sweet! Glad you gave her a gift in return. And so pretty with the black outline and the soft color for the "flower buds."
