I have been tatting an edging, using Lizbeth no. 20. Isn't the colour lovely. It's 'curds & Whey' by Mary Konior. It is to be sewn round a bonnet, which I will show you, when I have finished it.
I needed a fine edging for the edge of the bonnet, and made up the one at the bottom of the picture. Now can I claim this as my own design. It is so simple, I can't believe that no-one has done it before. On the other hand, is it so basic that it can't be copy righted?
I taught myself to tat from books, as a teenager, but had never met another tatter. Joining on-line groups has given me a new enthusiasm for the art, and enabled me to learn new techniques. I have even tried my hand at designing.
Any diagrams for working these tatted pieces are on my website www.handicrafts.org.uk
