Except for this little motif, from the Tatted Easter Eggs book, I have done very little tatting in the past few days.
#58-100 Motif Challenge
One of the beads met with disaster when I placed the
crystal (-cut-glass! Thank's Diane!) pitcher that I use to press tatting with on top of this motif. I was not paying attention and crashed the glass on top of the beads and one of them shattered.
The reason for this lack of attention and the pause in my tatting mania can be blamed on this - my first attempts at a fun new venture:
Two days ago, after reading all about this stuff on the many sites I found online, I hustled to a Staples store and bought a pen and little book and tried my hand at this art form.
Forty-eight hours later... I'm afraid I might be hooked. Anybody out there know what I am talking about? Zentangles.
Now I am seeing patterns everywhere. And I am fascinated with figuring out how to draw them. Can't be anything but good for my tatting, if only I could get the pen out of my hand!
