In love with tatting...

Tatting is just knots,
made on a thread and pulled together to form
chains and rings...
the art of lace making. 

My new love... tatting!

The technique and material are simple;
which makes it into a fascinating needlework.
Tatting dates back to the early 19th century
...a timeless needlework with many possibilities.

I love tatting because it is so exciting, and a relaxing needlework. 
Seeing my mother's beautiful tatting doilies 
have inspired me to learn this technique.

So far, this is my first attempt, I had managed to produce 
a series of beautiful butterflies and flowers.
