International Tatting Day
Yes, I've had my chocolate, and during SSR (Sustained Silent Reading) with the 2nd graders this morning, I read from Tatting Techniques by Elgiva Nicholls... I love this book! Tonight I'll try to tat a little.
As you can see, I'm still practicing with size 3 thread. The two little pieces are just doodles. The insertion piece is for my new spring purse, which I hope to make this weekend. I almost have enough tatted for what I need! I'll post a picture of the purse when it's finished.
I've gained a new appreciation for my Tatsy shuttle. I'm getting used to the size, and it sure makes it easier to finish a piece with larger thread. I don't think it will ever replace the smaller shuttles that I love, but it definitely has a place in my tatting ventures!
