I got the stitches taken out of my fingers this Monday, but my fingers are still too sensitive to do any hand crafts. I thought I would share my newest craft with you today.
I've always wanted to tat. My dad always said how time-consuming and tedious it was, so that kept me away from it. (I don't believe he ever tried tatting, so I don't know how he arrived at that conclusion.)
I was in Hobby Lobby, and looking through the craft books, and saw a book that taught needle tatting. Instead of using a regular shuttle, you use a long needle to make the knots on, and then you pull it down and create the rings that are common in tatting. I was fascinated, and after a month or so, went back and purchased the book.
I started right in on it, and realized that it wasn't that hard, and it didn't take that much time (it does take time, but it's not too time-consuming.)
Here are some bookmarks that I have made. I got most of the patterns off the internet.
