You can see more pictures of the tatted tartlets

Marlene wanted to learn
how to create split rings ...
and, I did my best to show her how I make them.
I think she has the technique down ..
and, her tatting is spectacular! Even tension,
she has a good eye for patterns ; )
And, she had a stack of tatting to show.
Am I ever gobsmacked by her beautiful bookmarks,
cross, round motifs - ornaments. Wow.
Did I mention the butterfly she had? She takes
two fibers and tats them at the same time.
It make a thick tatted butterfly, but the colorway is awesome!
