I have succeeded!
In 2009, 5 years ago, I started on an adventure across time. With Tatters Across Time. Now, before scoffers snort at me and the ignorant embarrass themselves and this humble tatter, I know, I know, I know. It’s not a huge deal. The three binders are just what they are. Opinions are subjective. But, I value the program. It took me a bit of time, but I just received my Master TAT pin bar!!!!! (big big grin on my face) I took the liberty of scanning and posting the patch (above) that they sent on the sidebar to the right. (still a big grin on my face)
I originally picked up tatting because I found I love sewing and working with thread; I fail at knit and crochet; weaving looms were too big to share a room with an organ; and I’m the type of person that likes to have something to do while riding in a car or plane or….well, you get the picture.
When I picked tatting back up almost a decade ago, I found I still liked working with the shuttles and thread. I also found the OnLineTatting Class and the wonderful community that gathers for “classes” each week. Through working with Georgia, Cynthia, Ann and Sharon, I came up with an idea. (I still think it’s a great idea.) It’s stated in my header: Represent musical compositions in thread. (and I still have a big grin on my face)
I’ve proven, mostly to myself, that I can tat. I’ve studied music. I can do this. Figuring out how to combine the two disciplines will be a huge task. I’m looking forward to getting started. After I celebrate! (with that big grin on my face)
