My First Tatting Lesson and A Special Tatting Gift
I am now a member of the Thread Therapy Group that meets every Wednesday at Barnes and Noble Bookstore. This small group of ladies are a joy to be with and everyone bring something different to work on. First, Peg brought all the members a gift of vanilla from her cruise from Mexico. Being the creative person she is the vanilla was placed in a fancy bottle and trimmed with tatting lace. I felt very honor to received this lovely gift too. Please see this special gift above. How wonderful that this tatting lace is in shades of pink, just the colors I am using in my first Crazy Quilt. I will find the perfect place for it on my Crazy Quilt. The vanilla smells wonderful and will be use quickly. Thanks Peg.
The top photo is the results of my first attempt at tatting. You can see I have a long ways to go. Both Barb and Peg gave me instructions on how to tat. I truly enjoyed every minute of my lesson. Hopefully one day I will be able to create some tatting lace I will be proud to add to my Crazy Quilt Of My Dreams.
