Tatting Class

I went to my first tatting class today!  I was very excited to complete a snowflake that inquired many of the different techniques needed to tat. I don’t have a picture of what I made, but I did learn how to do these as well.  I am really enjoying learning this lost art that is slowly being reborn.  The teachers website is http://www.snapdragonlace.com/   Also, if you knit or sew or do anything that requires a pattern you can find free .pdf books at http://www.antiquepatternlibrary.org/  it is an awesome website.

Sewing Seat Cover

seat-cover I had a piece of fabric that was wrapped around my seat and somewhat fit.  Today, I pinned and reshaped the seat cover to fit more snug on the seat.  It doesn’t slip anymore and much better.  Talk about a pain to do though!!!
