Sharon was asking a while back if any one had looked for things that could be improved with the addition of tatting or looked for new ways to showcase tatting? Well I have just come across this picture (on the left) of a friendship square that I made for a friend last autumn. The fabric is hand dyed cotton. After embroidering the daisies I decided it definately needed some tatting around it to finish it off and of course I just had to add beads. The design is approximately 6" high
On the right is an ATC (Artist Trading Card) which I swapped with another embroiderer. The idea behind these is you create a miniature work of art (approximately 2 1/2" x 3 1/2") in your chosen medium and swap it with a fellow enthusiast. They are swapped between people all over the world. There are whole sites devoted to them as well as yahoo groups but this was a one off we did in the EG forum last summer.
An embroiderer, lacemaker, in fact all crafts interest me it is only my full time job that prevents me from doing more. When I am not sewing you might find me in my garden. Widowed, children grown but still don't seem to have enough time for everything I want to do. Committee member of my local branch of the Embroiderers Guild for several years which also keeps me busy.
