my first tatting project

I had to set my tatting aside for a spell so I could crochet a birthday scarf for my boy (...I finished that scarf but can't show you quite yet just in case he visits his mama's blog...). {smile} But yesterday afternoon it was far too frigid to spend any unnecessary time in the out-of-doors, so the kids and I chose a movie to watch together (we settled on The Hiding Place) and I purposed to use the two tatting stitches I have learned to tat my very first intentional project.

It took me nearly the entire two-and-a-half hours of the (wonderful) movie to make this simple tatted butterfly, ta-da! So cute, yes? It has its flaws but I am embracing them as a reminder that only God is perfect...


I love it, such a sweet little lacy butterfly of size 10 colorful crochet thread it is. And I have requests from all six of our children-at-home for more butterflies so there will be plenty of opportunity for me to practice the beginner pattern of double stitches and picots. I likely will tat at least one for each of our grown children, too.

Friends, I think this new tatting endeavor is really growing on me!
