Happy International Tatting Day..!

Hello Sweeties,

Well I have been kindly informed from another Tatter, that it is the day to celebrate Tatting.! YES...! A whole special day to celebrate my new love.
Here is my first motif. It uses Josephine Knot and I still have to block it, but I was doing a major happy dance when completing it.!

Ahhh, I wonder why I took so many years to master the confidence to learn to Tat..? Its such a wonderful craft and the beautiful results are endless.!
I started and finished this cute little pink Snowflake on 17th March which is my Mother's 1st anniversary since she passed away.
This cute lacey boarder is going to edge a pretty white hanky when finished. (No not the badly creased and needs to be ironed hanky that its lying on. lol.) I love this boarder as its so easy and quick to tat up.

Can you tell I'm head over heels in love with Tatting..? hehe. Now if only I can increase my Tatting Shuttles I can start more then one project at a time.

Today on Tatting Day, I have actually finished a sweet bookmark and have been busy dying some Tatting floss and trying my hands at making my own fimo shuttles. Shall show you pics of them later on.
In the meantime, happy Tatting everyone..!
Hugs and happy stitching,
