Yay!!! The day came and went and was beautiful, so I wanted to share a few pictures with you all! Mostly of how the things I tatted turned out for her wedding.

You did a wonderful job. Your friend must be thrilled with your efforts.
You learned to tat so that you could make these things for your friend's wedding, but now tatting has you firmly in its grip. :biggrin: So what do you plan to do next?

Too much :). I'm making ornaments for my family and some bookmarks and just some random motifs

Little things become big things as time goes on. I was tickled to see that you used Hens and Chicks on your friend's hair ornament, that pattern is over 100 years old. I saw a note that had been stored with samples of tatting that went on and on about how Hens and Chicks was all the rage and the newest thing in tatting, dated 1894. And since you tatting was done in blue your part was "something borrowed, something blue".
Well done! Keep on tatting!

AND was the something OLD (the pattern-you don't get much older than 1894!!), and NEW (a new, or newly, found craft....and yes-it DOES become an addiction doesn't it!!)
Your Knotty Friend,

It is me in the red dress.
It's awesome to hear that the hens and chicks pattern is so old. I used it out of the book that I learned how to tat from, and I don't remember it having a name to it..

How marvelous; for her, because of the memories that you've added to her wedding and for you, because you have a new hobby/obsession.
