I received a request from my 10-year-old granddaughter, Eva.
In case you can't read the fine print, it says, "I want to learn how to tat." What's a grandma to do?
This morning we purchased Marilee Rockley's tatting class from Craftsy (see link in my sidebar if you're interested), and we set up shop. Eva's tatting supplies are at the top of the photo, mine are at the bottom. Jane, Eva LOVES her Roly Poly bag!
Eva wants to tat like Grandma, so she's pinching the thread between her thumb and middle finger. What can I say? It's easier for me. My hand goes kind of numb when I pinch between my pointer and thumb.
We're still working on winding the thread around her pointer finger the correct way. For now, we're both very pleased that she can manage the flip!
Eva's going to practice making a long chain this week. We're hoping to get together next week for another lesson. Luckily, she has a marvelous teacher online whenever she wants to move forward. Eva loves your class, Marilee!
