Well I've spent the last few weeks going back and practicing my shuttle tatting using fine thread until I've got it into a reasonable state (I think). I'm making Christmas presents at the moment and I wanted a tatted edging for the applique picture I'm making.
The picture has actually been a complete learning curve because I've never done applique before and whilst I've always cross stitched I've never done free hand embroidery.
I've totally fallen in love with embellished crazy quilting and the picture owes a lot to the blocks I've seen.
There's a picture of it as a work in progress, I guess I'll just have to see where it takes me.
