"But, really, why does anyone create? You feel a... a restlessness inside, a need to make something new, something no one has ever seen before. You want to add to the beauty and the richness of the world with a gift, an offering that is uniquely yours. It's an act of selfishness and generosity, all rolled into one."

So, I tatted a little bit this summer...

I didn't realize how much until I saw it all together, packaged up for the sale.

It's going in the mail to my mom today, but not like this. I sorted it into envelopes of similar items with suggested prices to make her life easier. Here it is thus tamed, and in a smaller box:

I had a helper, too, but he wore himself out.

So if there's any chance it could be feasible for you to get to central Georgia the third weekend of September, there will be tatting there! Lots of other great stuff, too, and all for a good cause. Here's the sale info again, just in case anybody can make it.


  1. You sure did get alot of tatting done! Good luck with your sales.

  2. Oh, Miranda, It all looks so very alluring. Seems you did a wonderful job packaging it as well. But then, you did have help...

    Hope it does well and lots gets sold. Your tatting is beautiful and hopefully it will also be educational for folks will see a most diverse display.
    Fox : )

    p.s. I have the #24 diamond pattern copied, ready to go after the one on the shuttles now. Just got to pick a thread... : ))

  3. those are pretty, I recognize some of the patterns (i.e., the chinese coin from Jon) ;-)

    cute little helper!

  4. Sorry I wont be able to make to over the pond this year, I hope your sale goes well, you have done a lot of tatting this summer.

  5. What a fun box that would be to open, even if it's just to see it for a little while! :)
