(Latin for teacher's web)- I'm no spider but I can tat a web. I started learning tatting (shuttle) and Latin the same year - MCMLXXIX.

Yellow! nuntium centesimum nonagesimum et septimum
I have made snowflakes all fall, probably since October and even though I admire snowflakes in other colors, I find that for selling, these are what are preferred. So on December 18th I started in YELLOW, a present for my dear alter ego, Ginny. She liked the present for my friend's wedding in the summer so I thought I would do something similar for Christmas for her. She is a bright and cheery person so this seemed perfect. I used Robin's edging again although it took me a while to get into the rhythm of it.
It's Lizbeth and size 20 but the baggie and the label disappeared somewhere. Color? Honey?
I decided to use the invisible thread again and the pinning takes longer than the sewing.
But it's well worth the time, rather than hand-sewing- ugh!!!!!
I still don't know why it amazes me that my friends who don't tat would like tatting. Silly, I know.
