The book that I had to have was,
I am so delightfully happy to have this book. I am not very good at designing or creating my own tatting patterns, nor do I really want to!
My daughter Krystle, who many of you know her as Krystledawne or Dr. VonThreadmore, knows that I have fought NOT to learn or take up tatting. She is highly responsible for guilting me into going to the Palmetto Tatting Guild's Tat Days past Summer. I went kicking and screaming!! (Okay.. I really didn't) I was both excited and apprehensive in going. I am thankful that I did go.. it was located smacked in MY town! Well, since then I have more or less developed my style or personality in tatting.
I am having so much fun in doing edgings or trimmings. I have been doing the hen & chicks edgings for my "1800's Period Costume" but that gets a bit tedious for my eyes. My eyes and my mind needs to be entertained when I am creating or making something. So with the new book, I am challenging myself to tat everything in it. I will also create a "Sample" book of my work. For my eyes not to become bored, I am using all the colorful threads that I have received for Christmas from my Hubby! I also have few of Dr. VonThreadmore's threads and Krystle's unwanted Lizbeth's! I am such a LUCKY.... erm... blessed gal!!!
So far I have done two edgings from the book!

I decided that I like to do different edgings and someday these will go onto my two Lil Angels' dresses!
