Pompey Tatters, September 2009

This was a very enjoyable event. It was shared with visitors from the Southern Tatters, Brighton and the Isle of Wight, and the West Midlands.
Daffodils in September? No they are not real, but tatted by our Ring of Tatters Chairman! See more detail here.
There was something for everybody in the workshop topics offered – block tatting, double and triple picots, and experimenting with rings. Pompey Tatters are very grateful to Heather Priseman for all her work for them over the years.
Competition:  “A Tatted Cross”
People marked their favourite entry with a cork: the one with the most won. I have not been told who supplied the corks!
Coincidentally there were 2 joint winners who both tatted the same pattern, a design based on Mary Konior's bookmark in “Tatting with Visual Patterns”. Heather's husband Peter was given the task of choosing the final winner, who turned out to be Marion Horley with her white beaded cross.

Quiet and companionable concentration. Maybe that is why tatting is so enjoyable, because it takes you away from day to day worries as you focus on tatting alone!
