International Tatting Day


Happy International Tatting day,  to all tatters around the world,  it’s been a sad year so far by losing two well known tatters,  but we have to think positive as there are always new tatters learning the craft.  For me this makes 52years tatting,  gosh that makes me feel old.

I started doing the butterfly ship pattern by Frivolite con Sabor,  sometime ago,  yes a ship with butterflies as the sails.  Well it’s one of those projects that has laid waiting to finish for a while now,  I still have the side butterflies to finish,   but I found these two practice butterflies,  as  I have nothing else to show for today, I thought I would use these for my tatting day,

The one above in yellow is no 2,  there are 8 different butteries make up the ship design,    This picture below is number one and these are the colours I chose to use for the ships sails,


I hope you have a wonderful day,  and enjoy tatting where ever you are.

Happy tatting
