I started teaching myself to tat round about a year ago, when I heard about it on line
and asked my mom about it. She said oh it's a dieing art. People don't do it much
anymore but it is so pretty. Well with life happening all around me I had stored
my tatting things after learning the basics, and decided last night to pull
it all out and see if I could make something for my dresser top.
I found this pattern in one of my pattern books. It's supposed to be a place mat but I
thought if I make it a little wider and longer it would be beautiful on my dresser, so that's what
I'm making. I remembered the basics quite well and finished four medallions and joined them
in one afternoon.
And here is my first finished block...not bad for a few hours work. Now I'm thinking tablecloth for the kitchen
table. I addore tatting now. If you have patients and time on your hands you should give it a try.
It is a dieing art and so beautiful we should bring it back.
