Over Christmas while wearing my snowflake earings at the shop, one of our regular customers asked where I got them, when I told Him that I made them and that I tat, he asked if I would teach him. So this year I have started teaching Alex, Alison, Amanda and Isabel how to tat. 3 weeks ago we had our first Tatting Tuesday. By reading other peoples blogs when they are teaching new tatters, we started with two colour chains. After an hour and a half of concentration, mistakes and success, they all left having mastered the flip and putting picots on their chains. I was really proud of their success. Next week onto rings and butterflys.
Since November I have been tatting more snowflakes, christmas ornaments as presents and using the supplies I got in a christmas exchange.
Here are some of the christmas ormaments that I gave as presents to DH's family.
