Learning to Tat

I am very pleased with my results on my first tatting project. I had won two tatting books, 3 needles, and some threads from Patricia, in a giveaway she had. So today I sat down and here's what I made. Once you learn to go through the loop on a ring and the teardrop on the chain,,,it's not that hard. I will try another pattern later,,got to get busy on my blocks again. But now I know I can do it , I will be tatting more to put on my cq work.

It turned out really nice Thelma. Tatting is something that I considered trying but I never did get around to doing it.

Way to go Thelma. That looks really good. You're a pro and you just started. I can't wait to see what you tat next. Hugs, Diane

Great start, Thelma. Keep posting your tatting and don't be embarrassed when you look back in a couple months. Yours is better than any I did my first year of tatting! That was 20+ years ago now and no relics remain...thankfully... *smiles* Keep up the great work and it won't be long before you abandon us for the advanced class. Peace, Cynthia (aka 1 of the beginning tatting teachers)
