I've been reading through this thread... and trying to figure out how you found the patience to create these beautiful patterns.
I'm learning to tat myself, though I'll be grateful if I can get two loops to stick together.
I'll eventually get there though... just as soon as I can finish editing (and re-editing, and re-rediting) my presentation, read about 500 pages of reference material and figure out just what the heck causes Blackfan-Diamond syndrome.... But I'll get there for sure!

It is good to see that I'm not the only one who loves to create from thread... You give me heart!

Warm regards,
Arti.

Thanks, Rach. I appreciate that they had kept it. I think that she knows that "It takes time to tat."

Soft Words, I hope that you get the hang of it. Tatting is addictive! I wrote about that in my book TatWitt: What I Learned When I Learned to Tat. One of my sayings is, "If it don't slide, you ain't tattin' " Keep that in mind when you pull a ring. I don't know if I mentioned it to you, but I do have an e-book (PDF) that teaches you how to do the "flip" and it has about 15 easy, original designs to tat.
Here's one, after you learn a thing or two, that you can make.

I see that you've asked me this twice. Sorry, I didn't catch it.

As a matter of fact I do have some new things.
This bookmark was created for a friend who didn't know how to tat chains. Someone saw it a few weeks ago and wanted one. I had a heck of a time reading my own instructions. I need to rewrite them so that it won't be so confusing.

Really beautiful work. I have mastered just about every kind of needle work. BUT NOT TATTING. I just threw me for a.....loop!

He doesn't know anything about tatting, but he knows what he likes, to paraphrase the old saying.

Thanks, hcscable. I know what you mean. I have tried to teach many the art of tatting, but when they don't get the concept, they give up. My old motto used to be, If it don't slide, you ain't tatting. That's the trick--to tie the knots correctly so that they will slide, not knots that knot.
(Oh, and I liked the pun!!)

Someone asked me to make "Brenda's Bookmark" in pink. I went in search of a soft pink, not the garish that I usually find. This was a different brand and much more delicate. It was so silken that I could barely feel it in my hands. Here's how it turned out.

Thanks, Rach. I started a butterfly with that thread. I was curious to see how it looks. It might make a pretty baby's bookmark if I could figure out how to do it.
