For awhile now, my Studio has reflected the multi-tasking phases of my '4R's Bucket List. There is the Jewelry 4R Phase I Station, the Yarn-A-Rama Phase II Station, and the Phase III All-In Fiber Station. That one pretty much includes fabric, buttons, beads, threads, yarns, ribbon, lace et. all.
Las Cruces Angels...which has been a 'one of a kind' sort of assembly line production...I have learned to TAT.
It was one of those spur of the moment things suggested by my friend Sandy at Sims Fiber Arts Studio while we were 'Sitting and Sewing' on Thursday. Needle Tatting has been on my 'Learn To Do' list for a long time, and Sandy teaches it as a class in her Studio.
Just what I need...right...another 'Thing' that has the possibility of becoming the next 'OverDoSue' Thingy.
Hmmmm...here's where I have a bit of a problem. I never was much good at practice....I am more of a 'Game Gal'. Guess you know what that means.....another Project to add to my Multi-Tasking List.
It will be a great 'Carry It Along' Thingy to work on while traveling, waiting in line at the grocery store, waiting in waiting rooms, and of course 'Thursday's Sit and Sew' at Sandy's Studio. I have the special needles and other tools organized in a snap closure wallet. The 'Tatting Wallet', Learn To Needle Tat Booklet and Sandy's Folder along with a Ball of thread all fit in small easy to grab and go bag. Let the Tatting Times Roll.
I can't imagine pulling out my tatting kit in the supermarket queue Sue, but I admire your "Be Prepared" set up so you have something at hand whenever inspiration strikes. I'm feeling quite inadequate when I see how talented you are on so many fronts - I need to lift my game!ReplyDelete

I tried to learn to tatt - FAIL!ReplyDelete
My grandmother used to tat...I remember that. You are a woman of all Trades. Tat but no tattoos, right?ReplyDelete
P.S. - I have a possible project/commission for you - would you email me atReplyDelete
JLF58@TX.RR.COM It involves a wall hanging from materials. Thanks
LOL - you do indeed take multi-tasking to mastery level! My grandmother knew how to tat and I always thought perhaps some day I'd learn. Tatting work is so lovely. How fun to have a tatting wallet loaded and ready to go, but I can't imagine you could get anything done in a shopping line.ReplyDelete
my mother tatted and somewhere I have her tatter - I like the idea of small and easy to travel with, I can do that with crochet if it is a small project but so many of them arent so perhaps I will give this a go, afterall as you say a Good thing for an aging brain.ReplyDelete
I see that tatting is making a come back and just recently I visited a vintage store that said they had a lady that was wanting to give a class on crochet, knitting and tatting. I can do the first too but I've always wanted to learn the last. I'm keeping my eye out for that one! I admire your work and I hope to have some of my own one day.ReplyDelete
