looks great!

Tatting is on my list of "crafts to learn" I dicovered some old metal shuttles (with some half finished lace attached) in my grandmothers old sewing box and have been intrigued ever since!

Wow!! Infeatheredeyes, that turned out lovely!! I guess I never thought about tatting besides being for doilies.  how knitcentric of me!  I'm a knitting bigot!  Augh!!  But now I've seen the light.  Maybe I will dig out those shuttles my gma gave me after all.  Thanks for the inspiration  Grin

Yeah, my great-grandmother tatted and I was like "Doilies... how... useful?" But then I found a bunch of really cool patterns online for bracelets and useful things, so I decided to learn.

I attempted to tat in class once about a year ago.  I thought it was the perfect craft for class since it's so small... which it would have been if I didn't keep getting so frustrated!  And my friend kept ogling it... which after about 30 mins got really annoying...

Now I think I will give it another shot (maybe after all x-mas stress is over).  Thanks for the tips!  I will try heavier thread.  I was using something like #30 beadspread cotton, in white no less.  It broke so easily I might as well tried tatting with blades of grass. 

P.S.  Your finished bracelet is so awesome!  I am in awe of the beading as well.

I'm down w/ a personal swap now and then!  PM me!

Yeah, I don't do any crafts in class now. I used to crochet, but everyone kept getting distracted and it's kind of annoying when everyone asks you to teach them (especially since most of them are only interested in learning for the first... two minutes).

I think I probably would have shot myself if I had started with size 30. Besides, the bigger threads come in every color of the rainbow, so it's more fun to mix and match colors. Smiley  I don't think I've ever tatted with white, any size.
