A Tat Different

Pretty excited to tat this motif.   It is
A Tat Different,
Designs by Betty Alderson of Snowgoose.

Special Feature in The NeedleWorker Magazine,
Spring 1999.

I used Lizbeth Size 20, off white +

I remember having a subscription to this magazine [no longer published, I think PieceWork bought it] and when this issue arrived in my P O Box, I wanted to tat.   Had no idea how to tat.   Just wanted to learn.    There is a 2nd pattern in the magazine, maybe I'll try that one, too.

Day 13:

It is a wing?

Simon ... aka Mr. Katt ... sitting on my portable t.v.
