Here are some details about my project:
Category Other
Style Traditional, Classic, Retro / Vintage on

What materials did you use? Tatting needles, tatting thread, scissors on

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! on

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? on

I think this is very meaningful! I am just starting tatting and would love to make a cross as beautiful as this!
