"By Jove I think she's got it!"

And a few more tiny motifs...

#4 and #5 Motif Challenge
Now to get into the tatting books to find a pattern for a birthday gift...  I find it difficult to settle on one thing, for there is so much choice.


I was approached by two women in a restaurant recently, asking about what I was doing.  Of course I was sitting there with shuttle in hand, big frown on face, tongue between teeth, totally immersed in my tatting. (Not a pretty sight, I'm sure!)

We talked for a long while and I gave them a card that I always carry - a business card my dear SIL had printed up for me a year ago, when he saw I was handing out my homemade ones that were on plain, very thin paper.  He was horrified!

So, unbeknownst to me, he ordered cards with a simple graphic, my name, city, phone number and email address. Isn't he something?

The cards have been very useful for giving to people who are interested in tatting.  I tell them about tat-ology and write the site on the card.

I like telling people to go to the blog; from there they can find out a lot about tatting, as there are so many sites available just by going to one blog.  A bit of proselytizing never hurt where tatting is concerned... : )

These cards have been fabulous over the past year.  Really useful. However, the time has come to have new ones made, as I am running low, and I want to have one with tatting info.

I designed a new batch and ordered them yesterday.

Maebh made me do it.



  1. Woo-hoo! This calls for chocolate! BTW, what thread is that?

    Great idea about the cards, too.

  2. That is such a great idea! I can't wait to see your design!

    Congratulations on your Celtic Wreath- love the colors in that thread - very celebratory!

    :) Ann

  3. I'm glad that Maebh convinced you to get new cards. I hope we get to see one when you get them.
