Here is my Just Thread It Challenge Entry! This is my very first challenge and I'm excited about it!
This tatted arrangement, was completely shuttle tatted, by myself.  With the exception of the pedestal type motif under the flower, all the thread is thread that I,myself, dyed by hand.

Tatting is a form of lace that is formed by knotting thread.

This is lovely.  I haven't tatted for ages. I don't even know if I can remember how.  You inspire me to have another go at it.

You should break out the shuttles again. Shocked). I am sure its like a bike, youll remember the way soon.  of course, I sell hand dyed thread, so I naturally feel like there should be more tatters in the world.  But, I also don't want the art to die.  Smiley

There are actually a lot of people that think tatting and crochet are the same.  Shocked)  They are very different however. Shocked)
