Heather at tatted treasures is doing an online scavenger hunt. This is her list for week 1:
Here are your first scavenger hunt challenges: (do as many as you like)
1.Photograph your shuttles making a face.
2.Find a reference to tatting in literature or a popular publication and quote or photograph it.
3.Tat a motif that uses a technique you’ve never tried before.
4.Photograph a coin dated the year you learned how to tat.
5.Poll 15 strangers and ask them if they have ever seen tatting before. Record the results.
I haven't done anything from her list yet but I think its pretty funny. Tonight I'm going to make a face with my shuttles. I know that Robin D. Owens makes a reference to tatting in one of her books. I can't remember which one.
Unfortunately I've blocked my teenage years from my brain (its all one big boring blur) and cannot remember when I learned to tat. That makes number 4 impossible.
