Been rather busy over the last couple of months! Helping out in different places and a week away teaching tatting!!
As some of you will know, I was teaching tatting at the Lace Guild Spring School in North Yorkshire at the end of March.
3 lovely ladies all busy tatting! We had a motto for the week as well... Annette coined it one evening (after a couple of glasses of vino over dinner)... "I've lost the flipping flip!" Didn't believe her!! and you can see from the pic below that nobody had really!
From not knowing or remembering how to tat (yes some had tatted before, but eons ago), they learned the double stitch, chains, rings, how to join to a picot, beaded ring n chain pendant with the beads on the thread before starting, beads added to picots whilst tatting, adding findings...
During the week they had an impromptu lesson in hanging clunies and split rings! (Thanks Babette!!)
She let me borrow and photograph this!!
My delight of the week?
Thanks Lace Guild and Margaret Wall!!
