Fringe tatdays classes
Fringe Element Tatdays this year. The theme is "tatting is the best medicine". Naturally when I tried to come up with a pattern I wanted to go with the theme. The first thing that came to my minde is "an apple a day keeps the doctor away". As a chiropractor I'm a huge advocate of preventative health so that was right up my alley. Unfortunately, I drew a blank while trying to design an apple. Fortunately while trying to design something else I looked at the blob of tatting and saw an apple core. So here is my apple!
The bag is supposed to resemble the traditional black doctor's bag. Of course I couldn't use black thread for my sample. Instead I used a lovely hand dyed thread from Karey Solomon.
In case you are wondering why I don't post very much...my blogger app promises to post from my phone but then always fails. I've finally given up on using blogger on my phone so more posts more often are in the future.
