I have a question. Do you all tat in public places?
I tat when I'm at the doctor's office, when I am waiting for my order in a restaurant and also tat when I am in the car (not when I'm driving, though. I haven't mastered that yet!). I don't make a big show about it, just quietly tat and most of the time, people want to know what I am doing. Recently, I had an older man in a doctor's office (who bragged that he was a Master Plumber) make a comment about how he couldn't stand to do something that is so repetitive and boring. I told him that I look at the big picture when it is finished and enjoy the process of completing it. I guess he had a hard problem understanding that. (Besides, I'll bet as a plumber, he does many repetitive things!) I also told him that (believe it or not) I do make money with my tatting. He couldn't quite understand that, either. Oh well, I'm glad I don't get comments like his very often. Most people have never heard of tatting and are amazed at the delicate lacey look. I love to create pretty things and enjoy it when someone else enjoys it, too.
