I have finished my second motif towards the 25-motif challenge. Two down, 23 more to go. I made Kira's Star. I used size 20 Lizbeth thread in white. It still needs to be starched and blocked.
Yesterday a friend and I participated in a living history event at Dudley Farm. We sat on the back porch. My friend was making a penny rug and I was tatting a collar for my bodice. I was surprised at how many people knew what I was doing and were actually interested in it. They all commented on how it's a lost art. I very proudly said that it's slowly making a come back.
This afternoon there was a tatting meeting at the Fabric Art Shop in Lake City. This was to be a meeting of the 1st and 2nd shuttle tatting classes and the two classes were going to merge into one group with the hope of forming a monthly tatting club. I brought some of the items I had shuttle tatted since my class ended in October. Based on the items I brought and what I said, the owner of the store asked me if I would be interested in taking over the tatting classes. As of January, I will be a tatting teacher! I'm really excited about it. Thankfully it's only a beginner's class because I still have a lot of advanced techniques to learn.
