Master TAT pin arrival

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)

    1. Thank you! I really could not have kept at it without all the encouragement of my tatting friends. Thank goodness I had as much time as I needed.

  2. Congratulations! I keep thinking I should try the TAT but then a project comes up and I get distracted!

    1. Thank you! I've never been good at managing distractions (squirrel) and tatting has been a hobby. I feel the binders are put together well, the comments supportive and with merit. Since there were no classes I could take locally, this has been a good way for me to gauge my progress. (that's where I put down that pen) Well worth the cost in my book. (I wonder if I mailed that birthday card?) I hope you do consider participating. (is it that time already?) I'll be happy to cheer you on!

  3. You were up to the challenge and you persevered! Congratulations and well done.
