Is anyone out there battling with taking up a new craft in '17?
Personally I'm in a consolidating stage at the moment. I tried to teach myself shuttle tatting last year when a temporary flare-up of arthritis made knitting & cross-stitch almost impossible for a while. YouTube was reasonably helpful - up to the point where left hand was wound up with thread, right hand with shuttle (did she say over or under the thread?) and I need a third hand to pause/backtrack the commentary!
Then I found out about needle tatting . Much easier to do, producing very similar results to shuttle work and possibly a little quicker. My efforts to date include about 20 butterflies, two circular table centrepieces,an edged hankey and dozens of "snowflakes".
What's everyone else up to?
Those were the Days! I copied this from a recent Probus mag. ( author unknown) So very true.
