First Post

Hello Tatting World :).

Welcome to my blog.  My name is Jenn which is short for Jennifer.  I am a mother of 3 children.  I live in sunny Brisbane in Australia :).

My cousin taught me the basics for shuttle tatting 2 years ago.  Due to our busy lives (young children), I took a break from tatting.  Now that my youngest is 5 years old, I decided to relearn shuttle tatting.  I am slowly learning each technique and hope to teach my 2 girls the basic of tatting this summer holidays :).

An experienced Tatter suggested I start a blog to document my progress as I learn shuttle tatting :).    Hopefully I can post updates of my tatting once a week or at least once a month :).

Here is one of my WIP using #10 cotton crochet thread.  I am tatting the December Motif from the Le Blog de Frivole but forgot to make the picots big enough for 2 beads for the next round.  I will finish the motif without the beads then attempt the motif again with the right size picots :).

LOL I seem to be doing this a lot i.e. attempting a pattern several times before getting it right :).  Hopefully the number of times I have to attempt a pattern will decrease as I improve :).

That's it for now.  Thanks for visiting my blog :).

Jenn :).
