Leaving Tatting for a Moment

Many thanks to my mother, Bettie Ferry, who joined us this week. She brought to the table a wealth of skills that include sewing and crochet, but alas not tatting. All that aside, she is an accomplished gardener and was for many years a professional florist. While she was engaged in that profession, she learned to make ribbon roses. Not a simple task but like so many crafts, once mastered, one that does not leave the muscle memory easily. It was so much fun to engage in an activity that was new to all of us. I truly wish I had taken photos during the session, but I too was caught up in just trying to make the end-product: a rosette made of ribbon! Even Leigh Jones, our senior crafter who is accomplished in almost every needle-craft known to man, had her share of challenge getting the technique. But in the end, we succeeded. We were even able to create little leaves to go with the roses and all in all it was a very good non-tatting day!
