If you enjoy the the wind on your face and open sky before you, you have come to a good place to find the romance and flavor of the West.

Needle Tatting

For a relaxing craft that requires few tools other than thread and a needle, try needle tatting. The history of shuttle tatting goes back several centuries, but, needle tatting appears in the early 1800s.

Needle tatting uses a long needle with an eye; the double stitches are made directly on the needle and pulled through to form the ring or chain. For an article that give a good overview of the craft go to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tatting#History

I have found some my best tatting patterns in books from the middle to late 1800s. I will endeavor to share some with you and photos of the finished products.

Happy tatting!

About Me

I love the wind in my face, the open sky before me, the romance and flavor of the West, but, most of all, our loving and living God, who created it all. I love how He works out His plans in the realm of human events, which is His Story. I have been blessed with a gift: a compulsion to write Historical and present-day novels set in the American West that demonstrate His power to transform ordinary people into true heroes and heroines. I am just a scribe really. I find the joy of participating in the creation of inspirational fiction indescribable. May our Lord Jesus Christ receive all of the credit and be glorified.
