For you non-tatters, a bit of knowledge. April 1 is International Tatting Day. And no, this is not a joke. There really is such a thing. Look it up.
It is celebrated by eating chocolate and tatting. Or eating chocolate and enjoying tatting. Chocolate and pretty things - what's not to like? Everyone should do this!
I've tatted a bit.
And I'm wearing tatted earrings, navy ones like the black one I'm making above. I like this pattern (it's mine) and it tats up fast, if you have the beads loaded correctly. Unfortunately, I don't. This is where I have to stop - I'm missing two delicas on my second shuttle. Easy enough to fix at home.
But no chocolate so far. I'm trying very, very hard to be good on my diet. I will have a bit of sugar-free chocolate at home.
Wait!! I found a high-protein chocolate bar! I can have this as my snack! Nom nom nom nom
Hope your day is good. Enjoy tatting!
