    Tatting is a Victorian era method of making lace. Its generally done with a cotton thread, ranging in size from a bed spread weight crochet cotton down to sewing thread.

    The doily is my largest project to date at approximately 9x13 inches. It won me 2nd place in the county fair last year.

    The ornaments are somebody did for my nieces and nephews for Christmas.

    Thank you!

    And to answer your question, it is quite detail oriented. I'm also not very fast at it, so it's a slow tedious process. I can be a little ADD, so there are times I can. only work in it for 15 minutes at a time. Especially with a giant puppy who wants to climb into your lap while you are doing it.

    Your work is beautiful! It must take a lot of patience to be able to complete something so intricate.

    Beautiful!!

    I inherited my great grandmother's tatting equipment - including some very nice shuttles - and I tried my hand at it a few times. But, DANG! that's hard work... and I'm not that detail oriented... I went back to crochet, where there's a bit more room for error. :)

    Beautiful! I tried to learn how years ago and found I just didn't have the patience.
