It gets crazier. Last week during our exploratory learning day, I was able to teach 10 kids to tat. I'm not kidding- I was stunned. I'm convinced it all has to do with Heather of Tatted Treasures videos.
I saw one of the kids in the hall on Monday and asked if she'd been tatting and she got a huge grin and said she'd made a bookmark! She knew rings and chains but not picots or joining so here's what she made.
Can you stand it? I am over the moon.
I even got to tat this weekend despite grades due on Monday. It was a request from a certain daughter in her favorite size 80 vintage Aunt Rose-E thread. It's the slightly modified Mary Konior Convolvulus edging.
And remember the thread from Diane? I tried the YLI Nordic Fjord. Look at these purples in it. Same cross- it's easy and I love it!
And just for fun, this is my front yard- in early May - in Minnesota!!!
Latin for today: attonitissima sum = I'm stunned (and of course convolvulus means intertwined)
