Bargains, Beads and Blue

The Beginning :

Thanks to Wanda, I realize there is another lesson in the Design-Tat course.  I had totally forgotten about it as my mind has been wandering and meandering aimlessly in a fog this past week. I read her post last night and realized I had better get to work. Thank you, Wanda, for the brainwave!

I am not following Sharon's instructions to the "T", but close enough, and I am excited about this piece... if it works.  Stay tuned.
As I was going through the instructions for this lesson, I started to think about all that I have learned. since September.

The learning kind of sneaks up on you, and all of a sudden you seem to know a lot more than before the course.  There is a lot to assimilate, and it gets sort of absorbed as you work through the lessons.  I had never designed a thing before, and I am beginning to feel more confident about trying more, stretching my creative impulses.

I have to say that this course is...

Sharon has developed a marvellous opportunity for tatters to learn about design in the privacy of their own homes. Heh  heh  : )

On-line and at your leisure, you can follow her well-developed plan and before you know it, you will be thinking differently about design and tatting and your own abilities. There are many months of on-line lessons to work on, lots of stimulation and tantalizing tatting topics.  All this for ONLY $20 USD!
Honestly, it is beyond  bargain, as I know of no course where you would get so much for a price so low.

Sharon is interested in  teaching  tatting, in increasing the knowledge of it out there in the world, not in  the profit she could make from her tatting tremendous  knowledge and experience.  Thank you Sharon.  It is a real privilege to be taking this course.

By the way, folks,

Back to the shuttles...


  1. I started Sharon's course a while back, but I had to stop because of all that was going on at school. I just couldn't keep up! I did enjoy the lessons I took, and I agree... $20 is a bargain! I love your motif with the finding. Again, I just don't have the time to even think about something like this. Maybe this summer...

  2. Diane, You are right... it DOES take time.

    I have not been following for several weeks and then it is difficult to resume.

    I just wanted to let people know about the course. If they read tat-ology, it seemed a way to put it out there...
    Fox : )

  3. You need to know -- I *hate* teenybopper OMG moments, but here I am saying, "OMG, you captured my feelings so expertly, so WELL, when you wrote:
    [It] "kind of sneaks up on you, and all of a sudden you seem to know a lot more than before the course.  There is a lot to assimilate, and it gets sort of absorbed as you work through the lessons."

    You are so talented a designer! and I am so proud to know you.

  5. Can't wait to see how this turns out. I love it so far!!

  6. The blues never looked so good, Fox - lovely start!

    Sharon's course really is great, and as you said, a bargain. She has done so much for tatting.

  7. The blue colour looks beautiful, I am hoping to do this course when she starts again. I was very interested in your remarks about the course,
    I would also like to thank you for the comments you left on my blog and becoming a follower.
