It is time for Pink Saturday again!
Pink Saturday is simple and fun to play along. Just post a picture of something pink! It is hosted each week by Beverly and you can get more details by clicking on her name above.
My picture is of something I found in a thrift store several years ago and was so very thrilled to find it. It is a framed picture of little tatted flowers. This was so thrilling to me because my little grandma Aeline, who passed away 16 years ago, was a needlework woman--knitting, crocheting, needle point and best of all tatting--practically a lost art. She would tat these little flowers and mount them on little stationary note cards, draw leaves and stems with a very fine point pen and then sell them in little gift shops. They were adorable and I was always enthralled by them.
Sadly, by the time I really wanted to learn to tat, she had suffered a pretty extensive stroke, and while she could still knit, crochet and tat, it was too difficult for her to teach me. It has taken me a very long time to forgive my aunt (her daughter) for not sending me Grandma's tatting stuff after she passed away--she has always claimed she couldn't find it, but I have a hard time believing that as Grandma's stuff was always very organized. She had a beautiful tortoiseshell shuttle (which I have never seen another like it) and lots and lots of the thin little thread you use in tatting.
Anyway---here is my little framed picture which I happened upon quite by accident in a thrift store.
