And……… I have been busy! There has been a lot of stuff that I have been tatting but it is all just practice and I think I am not ready to include that in the 25motif Challenge. There is a cute little flower that came out right but what is just one flower. My idea of 25motif challenge is that when I submit something it should really count as a really good tatted piece that I can display. It is just 25 motifs and I have an entire year. A year is a really long time… 365 days to practice and perfect myself in the art of tatting. And I want to use this opportunity to make stuff that I can be really proud of. Here is a pic of the flower that I made. [Clearly, I need a scanner or a high resolution camera for all my photos!!]
Now for the real reason why I am online. I am so excited and just can’t giggling to myself. Guess what I found online?
BOOKS. Books on tatting… I was complaining that I didn’t have enough books or designs to learn to tat and had been searching online for patterns when last night I came across this site. And a little while later, I found the main gallery. There are whole complete books scanned and available on this site. Thank you so very much to Karen, the owner of the gallery, for sharing them. It makes tatting so much easier for me to learn now. Here are the books and some other sites on Tatting.

For those of you wondering how I got to this…err… I typed Tatting in the search box on Picasaweb. 😀
