I have been talking to so many wonderful people about tatting. Thank you all for sharing from the wealth of your knowledge about tatting and all the encouragement that you have given me.
I started tatting this last night from an old, old Workbasket magazine I found, where else? . . . at EBay. I haven't bought but one thing before this but criminey, I do believe it could become an addiction. So many things, so little precious room, and even less money, sigh. Back to tatting, this is a picture of what I'm making, it's a flower appliqué, and I noticed at about the third round that I was doing it wrong but I thought it looked pretty cool anyway, so that's what that is above. I couldn't capture the color, it's Cebelia 210-size 10 thread. I can't believe the contrast with different background and lighting. This is using my cell phone camera so I can't take any far away pics!
Today I received a copy of "Every Woman's Complete Guide to Tatting" edited by Barbara Foster. I read the entire beginning and looked at all of the patterns and pics, I think I'm going to really like this book. I am drawn to square motifs and I saw several that I'd like to try.
I'm off to finish my appliqué!
