My tatted flutterby.....

I actually don't set aside enough time to do this. Since teaching myself, with a video from the library, how to shuttle tat - I've developed a real love for the old craft.
This is tatted with sz 10 crochet thread.
Once, on an airplane sitting between two men, I took my tatting out and began working. They both leaned forward and asked me what I was doing......we talked the whole trip about tatting!
Who would have thunk!

I am learning to tat too! I just had to put it aside until after the holidays. I do enjoy it but am still much to slow at it to make Christmas gifts, lol!

Oooo, how cool! My sister-in-law tats, and her grandmother tried to teach me - I'll get it eventually. (When I have less UFOs, I'm allowed to learn *another* craft/art.)
