What is TattingChic?

People often ask me "What is TattingChic?" , "Is it Tatting-CHICK or Tatting-CHIC (pronounced \ˈshēk\ or "sheik" like the Arabian guys)? My answer to that is..."It's whatever you want it to be!"

First of all, since I am a female and since sometimes females are referred to as "chicks" (usually, I don't find this to be offensive) and since I often engage in the act of tatting; therefore, I am a tatting"CHICK". Used in a sentence thusly, "I got a comment today on my blog from TattingChic (tatting"chick")."

Secondly, in the dictionary
chic is defined as "smart elegance and sophistication especially of dress or manner : style". So since I think of tatting as one of the most elegant and beautiful things on the planet I think it is rather "chic" thus, when referring to the elegant style of tatting one could refer to it as tatting"CHIC". You could use it in a sentence like this when gazing at a particularly lovely sample of tatting..."Wow, now, THAT is some TattingChic (tatting"chic"). See what I mean?

Thirdly, Since we have two very different pronunciations and meanings for the same word, one being a noun and the other an adjective you could use them both in the same sentence. Here's an example, "TattingChic(n) commented on how TattingChic(adj) my blog was." or "Would you get a load of how TattingChic(adj) that TattingChic(n) is!"

Finally, I know what you may be thinking... "So when is this TattingChic ever going to post any photos of her TattingChic?" That, my fellow tatters and non-tatters, will happen when I ever learn to use my Canon Rebel Digital Camera.

Hey, Good job on the background! What program did you use? If you are ever extremely bored and seriously have nothing else to do, you can go through my old posts and learn the whole Korea saga. I am super excited and petrified at the same time!

Hey Sherry, Thanks for the compliment. The background was easy I just went to Pyzam.com and picked out a blogger template. If you look just below the NavBar on my blog you will see a little orange horizontal bar that says "Click here for thousands of templates" and it will take you there...beware... I lost all my widgets and and had to reinstall all my fave links, cluster map, webring badges,etc. That was not cool, I think that can be prevented during the application of the template if you really pay attention to what you're doing.
Okay, I guess I have some research to do about Korea in your blog...but I must know...will you still be making shuttles, because I'm on a medical leave right now and it will be a while before I can afford one of your beauties...I just want to make sure they are still available in a few months? Yes, yes, it's all about me and my having one of your shuttles, I know. LOL
