Happy International Tatting Day!

I hope all of you tatters have a wonderful day today that includes time to tat! If you don't know how to tat yet, many of us will be tatting in public today to share our art.  We love adding new tatters to our community. If you want to learn to tat, just ask us.

My International Tat Day gift to you this year is the pattern for the Dorothy Edging that I designed for a handkerchief for my mother this past Christmas. Some of you asked for the pattern, so I've been busy trying to refresh my limited diagramming skills to get it ready for you. I still have a bit to learn about using my graphics program, but this was the best I could do. I hope you enjoy using it. Just click on the image and you'll be taken to the pdf of the pattern. It will be added to my patterns page soon.

Thank you so much for sharing that gorgeous edging pattern!!!!!!!!! :)
As for my ITD, I have already continued in a lesson started last night at 10:30pm with our oldest granddaughter. She learned to tat before, but gave up and yesterday asked if she could learn again. She is already making rings(which is what I start with), and picots, and a couple of joins. So I figure I will be busy teaching more later today. :)

You are all so welcome. I hope you enjoy tatting it.

God's Kid, that sounds like the perfect way to celebrate the day. I'm so happy for you. It is so much fun to share your hobby with your children and grandchildren.

I haven't had a chance to do more than glance at my shuttles all day. it's after 9 pm here, but I'm about to indulge myself for a little while.
