What are you most proud of? The crosses are now on prominent display in my home. Grandma enjoyed them until she passed and then I brought them home. Everyone seems surprised to find out that I can also needle and shuttle tat and many don't even know what tatting is!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? For me needle tatting is faster but, I love shuttle tatting because the stitches are smaller and "daintier" in my opinion making them more traditional and vintage. I say choose whichever technique you like best - but do not be afraid to try somehting new!! How will you know if you like it or not if you have never tired it?
