Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to meet clothing designer Linda Rowe Thomas who lives in central Arkansas. When she expressed an interest in learning to tat, I told her about all of the wonderful resources online for beginners and gave her the address of my blog to use as a starting point. You can see some of her designs in her gallery. I look forward to seeing some tatted elements in some of her pieces.

Inga Madsen's book, 12 Tatted Fairy-Tales, is wonderful. These two projects were complicated enough that I took time to study the picture and the diagram very carefully before starting to tat. Inga provides large images of the completed tatting for all of the projects which is very helpful.
Flights of Fantasy by Martha Ess arrived yesterday. I'm torn between the Regal Dragon and Knight, the Rearing Unicorn, and the Tapestry Unicorn. I'm going to let my daughter make the final choice. Thanks so much to all of you for your helpful suggestions!

I'll post Thumbelina as soon as she is finished. Sorry about the shadow on this one. Do you see the little green pea?
