After getting all the dust and cobwebs removed from my blog, I finally got around to taking a few photos of some of the tatting I've been doing recently.
I learned to tat many (many) years ago! I learned how to tat using a shuttle (or 2 shuttles depending on the pattern). My sister showed me some of the tatting she had been doing with needles, so I knew I had to give it a try. After figuring out how to use the needles for tatting (can I say LOTS of YouTube videos!), here are a few of the things I've been working on. None of them are perfect, but I'm getting a little better each time!
I've made a few bracelets...with beads and without beads. Putting beads on is a real pain! I think my favorite of these five bracelets is the red one (4th). Which is your favorite?
I also tried my hand at some snowflakes. I've done these with 2 shuttles before, so it took a few tries before I grasped what I was trying to do. I'm not sure how to stiffen them, but I'm thinking I'll use a glue/water solution. Seems like that's what I used years ago. We'll see how it works. I've made about 5 of them now, but they are basically the same. Need to find a new pattern and try something different.
That's it for today. I'll be back a little later with a card or two...and maybe a scrapbook layout. I've also been working on a few Zentangle pieces but haven't taken any photos yet. Just trying to stay busy!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments and your visits are always appreciated!! Until next time...
