Paige has finished her first two motifs! They're simple rings and chains, but she's very proud of her accomplishment, as she should be! As her prize, she chose one of LaCossette's beautiful shuttles. You should have seen the kids trying to help her choose the perfect shuttle!
I knew I'd forget, but I know the kids will remind me of who tatted this beautiful length of chain, and chose a bookmark as her prize.
Third and fifth graders swarmed the library after lunch today. It's so much fun to see them helping each other out, and it's amazing to me that they spend their precious 10 minutes of recess time practicing tatting!
Karl finished another length of chain and chose this tatted lion as his prize.
Madison is also enjoying tatting lengths of chain. She chose a tatted necklace as her prize.
My next project is from this book. I don't speak or read Russian, but it doesn't matter. This book has wonderful diagrams!
This is the first round of the doily found on page 53. The thread is Lizbeth Victorian Red, #670, size 20. The color doesn't show up well in this photo, but it is a beautiful deep red.
Tomorrow will be another fun day... more shuttles arrived from Handy Hands!
