For my non-tatter friends...
International Tatting Day
1. Eat all the chocolate you desire.
2. Wear a little tatting and tell everyone you meet about tatting.
3. Tat only for yourself, only what YOU want to tat.
4. Remember (or honour) the tatters who have gone before you and contributed so much to our art.
And by all means, you can send cards.
There weren't chocolates but I am pleased I tatted something. It's a celtic motif designed by Castella Arthur (aka Castats). I found this pattern a long time back but didn't get to tat it until now. The motif's meant for a table runner if I'm not mistaken. It's pretty. (Oops, I haven't had the chance to hide the ends and block it yet! :p)
Hope all my friends who enjoy this art has a Happy International Tatting Day too! And there is much to blow our horns about...
TATTING IS NOT A DYING ART!
