So, I’m contemplating taking some tatting lessons from a friend of The Boyf’s. Tatting is a very old-school hand-made art form, and one at which my maternal grandmother excelled. Through my aunt learned to knit and crochet, and my mother learned to sew, no one in my family has ever expressed an interest in tatting since my grandmother. When my grandmother died, I decided that it was of interest to me, but I never did anything to pursue it.

Then, in November, I ran into The Mad Tatter – that friend of The Boyf’s. Turns out she gives personalized lessons.

So, who knows… I may be about to join the ranks of my many, many, many, many crafty friends. Or, I may be about to learn I suck at tatting. But hey, at least I’ll have tried, right?
