Thanks for the info! A long time ago a lady tried to show me--on a lunchbreak and she had plans of making this elaborate butterfly--and I couldn't even get holding the thread down. I think that it's my crochet/knitting holding patterns that made it feel funny to me. I'll practice!

that is beautiful!  my mother in law tried to show me how to tat but i am left handed so it got to be really frustrating!  it is an extinct art.  perhaps i should try again!  by using the instructions/websites you all have left.

Oh no! You've just pushed me even closer to learning how to tat, I need to resist though, far to many projects currently going on in my life, where I'd fit in time to learn how to do that I don't know.

I actually really like the first picture you took of it on the white fabric, I think it would look really good permanently attached to something like that.  In general though, it's just so sophisticated looking

Thanks for the great websites!! Somewhere amongst my crafting stuff, I have a tatting shuttle and tatting cord that I found at Jo Ann's. Of course, a few weeks ago I was in Michael's and saw a very, very pretty filigreed tatting shuttle, and other accessories to hang from a chatlaine. Expensive, but I may have to indulge!!

Sewlittle, I think I know which shuttle you are referring to, and I would recommend against buying it from Michaels which sells it for like 15 dollars, but instead try eBay, as you can ususally find it for under 8 dollars including shipping. 

I collect shuttles too, and now I have about 40+, some of them very special.  If you ever want recommendations on shuttles or suppliers, pm me, I'd be happy to help.

I just wanted to post up some more of my more recent tattings...

This one isn't finished yet, but is the center part of a much larger doily I am working on. 

This link shows what it will look like once complete (which will be months from now I'm sure). 

A bit late in the year for snowflakes, but I think they are lovable in any season, doncha agree? 

The one one the right became a little distorted because I used tube beads instead of seed beads and the extra space taken up stretched the pattern sort of funny. 

All your positive comments have made me feel warm and fuzzy.   Cheesy
