Secret Santa 2011
This is what Lorena Finnerty sent me in the Secret Santa Exchange. The pretty Tatted mini doily she adapted from Susanne Schwenke's 'Musterbeschreibung' I love the colours. The thread is an HDT by Karey Solomon. Must find a really nice pattern to tat with that. The beautifully neat bracelet, Lorena made herself from Parachute cord. Some scrummy chocolates and a cute little note clip board. How lucky am I !!
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
