Wooohooooo! It snowed today in my mailbox! I received this gorgeous hand-tatted lace from incredibly talented and nimble-fingered TattingChic. I was completely blown away when I first learned that these intricate beauties were made by hand, comprised of tiny, tiny stitches of fine thread. It requires a healthy dose of time and patience and skill to make one of these, and I'm grateful that this kind of artistry still lives on.
I am in such admiration of her work that when she offered to do an exchange, I jumped at the opportunity. And look! She not only gave me a snowflake, she also added an amazing heart. Just look at all that intricate detail! Wow! I wish you could see and feel one of these for yourself. They look delicate, but the stitches are quite strong and firm.
Thank you, TattingChic. You are incredibly sweet and amazingly talented and always keep me laughing. I shall cherish these forever.
Now go check out her other works. You will be blown away, too! Shoo, away with you.
