THE MUSICAL TATTER

Have you started yet?



Well, I am getting ready for the Holidays already! I have received some orders for my tatted ornaments and angels and am trying to get them done as quickly as I can. I just finished the items pictured and it took me awhile to make them. The Holidays will be here before we know it, so that means we need to get busy hand crafting, whether it's for a show or just for giving gifts. I do both, and with this economy the way it is, I can save quite a lot of money if I make my own gifts. I am sure you all do this, too. I also like the reception I get from my friends and family when they open their gift. They know it is one-of-a-kind and uniquely made for them. And it took a lot more time than just going shopping and picking something out. Our handicrafts are getting harder and harder to find, with more items being manufactured--and coming from China! If you have any comments about your gift-giving, please let me know. I would love to hear your thoughts on this. Happy creating!! Linda

Your work inspires me, Linda. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I just purchased my first tatting book today along with a shuttle and thread. Now....to learn how.
