Anyone else trying to?


Here is the next pattern I am working on.  Stolen from a picture on the net. I started it twice, before I realized I needed thicker thread. 
My bobbins are wound with thicker threads, black & navy blue.  We shall see how it turns out.





Here is my first few attempts with sewing threads.  Lol.

Those are beautiful. My cousin can tat too. Not many know how.

I taught myself to tat using a teach yourself needlework book,  I think its out of print now but it covered knitting, crochet, tatting and embroidery and had simple patterns.  My mother commnented once about wanting some tatted lace for a blouse but she did not know how to tat.  So that winter I taught myself and gave her 6 yards of tatted edging for her blouse.  I liked tatting because I could roll it up and stick it in my pocket at work, and work on it during odd times.  I just got some spare bobbins of thread (they are very small too) so I would not run out of materials.

You should try tatting. There are only a few stitches but they can be put together so many ways to create so many beautiful things.  I find it is easier on my arthritic hands than any other needlework because it is basically knotting which you can do with a looser thread, then snug it up.  Start with larger threads though, because if you need to pick it apart those fine threads are like OMG to un-do!!:eclipsee_Victoria:
