your work is exquisite, takes much practice and patience, but worth it, I'm sure. Lovely! :dblu

Witt, this piece is absolutely exquisite!  I love the pieces I have that you did for me.  I love the snowflakes and bookmarks.    Each piece is an absolute treasure to me.  And I also love both of your books. 

Keep on tatting!  ~hugggs~

This is my latest creation. The Easter Flower Cross. It's a lot bigger than most of my bookmarks. The cross is 7 inches long.

witt, your Easter cross is beautiful!!  Do you have patterns to work from, or make your own? 

My Great-Grandmother used to crochet crosses.  I have 2 from her that I will always treasure.  A blue one that used to belong to my Mother (which I keep in my Bible) and a white one that she made when my first child was born.

I can imagine that your fingers would be pretty sore by the time you finish tatting an item (especially one as large as the first one you posted here) ... but worth it for such beautiful heirlooms.

I do both. I create some and I use some. This one I revised from an old pattern that I had seen in an old book.
My fingers used to get sore when I first started tatting, but I don't have that problem anymore.
This cross, to me, would be a wonderful Future Heirloom. (That's the name of my creations. Future Heirlooms.)

Witt,

I've been studying your lovely work and trying to figure out how to do it... without success.
I've been crocheting for over... well... I'll just say it... for over 45 yrs (ouch!). I use cotton yarn (string). So, tatting is right up my alley. I'll have to look on the internet to get some direction!

Your work is beautiful!

Thank you! I have an ebook. I forget what it's priced, but if you'd like it, I could find out. It has instructions and about 14 or 15 of my easy, beginner patterns. Let me know if you're interested.

I love the work you've put up here. I love creating things too, and I'm currently learning to tat. Someday, I will succeed in figuring out the loops.  :tongue

I'm currently more into embroidery. I do crochet and knit as well - though I'm badly outta practice knitting. As soon as I finish making the dress I'm currently working on, i'm planning to sit down and properly learn to tat. :)

I would also be interested in your ebook, Witt .... I know we can buy instruction books at the craft stores, but I'd rather support my fellow splash artist(s).
