Ever wonder what machine embroidered tatting looks like? Click here to see! Be sure to click on the images to enlarge them when you get there. Above is one small sample. I suppose you could do the same thing with hand embroidery but it would be very very tedious. It does fool you from a distance though. I mentioned some time ago that I almost bought a piece in a thrift store until I looked closer at it. The lighting was poor there and I had to take it to a better lit area.
Tatting Tea Tuesday has escaped me for weeks now. I did just brew a pot of chai flavored tea to ice. I started another partridge last night in a different thread but stopped at the tail. I was tired and I knew if I tatted the tail, I would feel committed to staying up and hiding the ends and then blocking. Next thing you know, it's midnight! So I went to bed instead.
Tonight is my watercolor group's meeting. I have yet to go to a regular meeting so I think this will be the one. That's why I put it on my calendar. There is so much I need to do this week though. I can't possibly manage to do it all....but it's okay. Nobody's life depends on it. LOL!
Maybe we should have a Tatting Chocolate day.
I stopped in an art gallery as I left Nashville yesterday. I picked up a few free brochures and flyers on a table and was especially intrigued by this one. What a great fundraiser!!!! Shopping is great there so I'm thinking it would be a fun roadtrip right before the holidays.
