Crafting: Tatting

I've been on vacation for a few weeks and apparently during that time I've decided to become a tatter! I hit the thrift stores and came across a Coats & Clarks Book No. 124 - Old and New Favorites which originally cost 29 cents. I got my copy for 25 cents! I also picked up a bag of 4 500 yard skeins of vintage thread (all with the same die lot!) for $2.00. 

I had been teaching myself to tat for a few weeks prior to this thrifting discovery so I started right in on the Frosty Flowers Tatted Doily A-347. I really like the design even though I am not sure what I will do with a doily! I finished the first three rounds the first night.

I enjoy tatting. It is simple to learn but you can make a lot of designs. It also seems easy to design your own patterns which is something I've been thinking of doing as there aren't many icicle tatting patterns out there!
