Needle Tatting Envy...
Here are some amazing gifts I received from my "Sister" blogging friend Suztats. I am so in love with tatting...both needle and shuttle. Some day I will learn how to tat. Of course when my Grandma and her friends tatted I never took the time to learn and now I am even more determined to know how to do this wonderful craft. Suz does Needle Tatting and she has ever so generously made some and gifted them to me. This first photo shows a Gelli Tag Suz created. And two fabric ATC's.
I am in complete awe of this fabulous piece. It is a very small ring that has been tatted with an edging. In the center is the most beautiful and amazing Tree of French Knots to form the flowers.
Do you see the fabulous tatted Seahorse Suz created for me? It is so amazing and reminds me of the time I was able to actually pet real Seahorses. Of course you already know how I love the color blue!
This ATC is very tactile with all the fiber background and then the tatted floral bouquet complete with beaded centers. How will I ever learn to create such wonderful tattings myself? I do have a recently found source for Needle Tatting lessons and they will hopefully happen in June. Yes, I have tried to learn to tat from DVD's, Books, and YouTube and all with no good results. I am the type of person who needs to have someone show me in person and then hopefully I get the idea of how to do it myself. Please visit Suztats in the link above to see her Creative Bliss. Thank you so very much Suz Dear. I shall cherish these pieces forever.
I know I said I would share a little outing Mr. C and I took, however I have not uploaded or edited any of the photos and the outing was all about the photos of what we saw. Maybe next time I will have my act together.
May is upon us and time is not standing still. The days are running together faster and faster. My little jobette at the Chamber is done for now but may have a few more days of helping and training later this month. I already miss not being there everyday.
The Sun is shining and the flowers are blooming and life is good. I am Embracing Creative Bliss even though I have spent zero time in my studio or sewing room. Soon I hope.
Prayers for the Canadian fires to go out and allow rebirth and healing to so many who have endured unimaginable devastation.
Do today what you really want to do and never put it off...
