I was invited to do tatting demonstrations at the Smithsonian with my lace group.
We are there every 4th Thursday of the month. Stop by the American History Museum to see us.
We have bobbin lace demonstrations.
Tamara and I do tatting demonstrations.
So many people have never heard of tatting or even seen it being made.
It’s always nice to hear stories about family members who tat or what pieces have been passed down through their family.
It’s even more exciting when someone wants to learn how to tat.

Jean from a lace group I belong to is down sizing her hobby room.
I was so lucky to receive her amazing collection of tatting books.
This weekend my nose is going to be in those books, dreaming and planning of future projects.
I am a bit of book nut, so my rule is what comes in must go out.
This weekend some of my books will be gifted to make room for the tatting books.
Here are pictures of the books:

Here is row 7 of the Honey Napkin.
This row is curling up and not sure if I should tear it out or hope that blocking will fix the problem in the end.
I won’t start row 8 until I decide what to do about this row.
Pattern is by Renulek.
She has the steps on her blog Tatting, Tatting, Chiacchierino.
Here are the links to each row.
Thread is DMC size 50 in ecru.
