Last Thursday at the Knit & Crochet Show, I took a class on tatting* with Susan Lowman. I’m really enjoying this new craft (and new use for all the crochet thread I’ve stockpiled over the years).
It took about 4 class hours for me to learn to tat and complete this butterfly.
Since then I’ve played around with some motifs from the book, New Tatting: Modern Lace Motifs and Projects , and I’m working on making myself a bookmark.
I obviously need practice to get my stitches more even, but I’m having fun along the way 🙂
*I spent the whole class sitting next to fellow designer Linda Dean. She and I had a blast, and she was wearing one of her designs that I tech edited.
You did an amazing job on your tatted butterfly! And your tatted bookmarks are coming along great! Thanks so much for taking my shuttle tatting class. I’m thrilled that you took to it so quickly! I look forward to seeing more tatting from you!
Finding this post. It’s just a big piece of luck for me.
Wonderful blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Many thanks!
