OH! Did someone say "tatting"!? I just tatted a teapot and featured it on my blog! Come see! :)(It's a few posts down by now, but it's on the front page)
I'll have to take down my empty tea tins from the shelf and put them to good use.
Goodness, it's been a long time since I've seen anyone tatting. I used to do it as a teenager.
(chuckle) I store my tatting in tea tins, chocolate tins, cookie tins...you name it. I also have a couple of small wooden tea crates that will hold either tatting or tatting supplies when they are empty. I do have one domed tea tin that I used to keep tatting in but has gone back to storing tea.
First of all, welcome to Uniquely Tea TattingChic and Gina! Wow ~ I've just visited your blogs and the tatting you do is BEAUTIFUL! One of my favorite rooms at Kensington Palace is the lacemaking room - it's hard to imagine women "back then" doing tatting and other lace-making by candlelight! They said that most of those women went blind at a very young age. Guess we should say a prayer of thanks to Thomas Edison!!parTealady ~ you'll soon have a chance to share your decisions with us! Stay tuned.Joan ~ I'm impressed! It looks very, very difficult to me! All I ever managed to do "back in the day" was cross-stich. But I did love it...
This is awesome! I actually have tatting supplies. I'll have to do this! A great way to organize them and make them shelf-presentable!
Hello Melanie, and thank you for visiting/posting. Hope you'll show us a picture on your blog of your newly organized tatting tins!!
Great. Just great. Did you know I'm a tatter? So naturally I followed your links and saw that whole BOOK of tea-themed tatting patterns! I NEED that! And I have birthday money left ... but ... I was saving up for this tea party bracelet I really, really want ... decisions, decisions!
Angela, No, I did not know you were a tatter. I'm NOT a tatter but thought that book was so cool.
