Another Happy Belated International Tatting Day Post

Happy International Tatting Day one day late! For those of you who tat and know that April 1st is International Tatting Day this is old news! For those of you who didn't know this then this is fabulous and exciting news and I am so glad to be the one to break it to you! On tatting day it is requisite that you tat something for yourself and eat all the chocolate you like! I had to work yesterday so while I was much too tired to tat when I got home I did sneak a little chocolate on my break! I just wanted to wish all the tatters in tat-land a Happy Belated International Tatting Day!

In honor of the big day here is a photo of some tatting that I took 2 years ago on April 1, 2008. While I posted it later on a different post, I did happen to take in on a tatting day of that year!

Happy International Tatting Day! - belated too..

Just HAD to hop on by to let you know again how COOL that tatted 3-D egg is!
Also, very cute photo with the lamp and the bunny!

I believe you know I created a 3-D egg many years ago (I hope to feature it this weekend in my blog), but it doesn't have nearly as much tatting as yours, and I did mine in 2 sections.

You indicated you used the 'balloon' trick to shape it. I'm still trying to figure out how you got a balloon in there!

Sure hope you have a nice Easter. It's so generous of you to offer Janette's book as a giveaway.

We're having 'California' weather here in Western PA right now, and I sure wish we had it year 'round!

Thank you for visitng. Hope you had a good chocolate treat and hope you are feeling better. It was just reported that a small square of dark chocolate each day can help keep blood pressure in check. More excuse to eat chocolate.

Bella Sinclair said...

Happy International Tatting Day! Do they ever say Happy IT Day? I am only a tatter by association, so I am only allowed to half-celebrate. I will pick the chocolate half, thank you.

Have a great Easter weekend!

Hey there, Laurie, we'll have to email each other, friend!

Hi Blue Damask! Thank you! Your 2 new threads sound lovely!

Hi Kathy thank you for hopping on by! Like you, I made my 3-D egg many years ago. In fact, it's been about 17 years ago. You stick a deflated balloon in with a metal crochet hook! Then you blow it up! That's how you do it! Thanks for the nice Easter wishes! I sure hope you have a nice Easter, too!

Hi Umintsuru! Yes and the riboflavins in dark chocolate can help decrease inflammation...in moderation, of course! I'm thinking of getting some Lavender infused dark chocolate at a little chocolate shoppe I know...hmmm.... It is Easter this weekend you know!

Hello Bella Sinclair! I am full on Tatter and I had to pick the chocolate half due to work and fatigue! Oh, they say Happy ITD which I think is a cop out if you ask me! LOL! ;) I think it is a cop out because there are so many people who don't know what tatting is that when we say it and we use too many abbreviations without explaining what the abbreviation is that we alienate our non-tatter or new-to-tatting readers when we do too many abbreviations...I'm just sayin'

now...back to my chocolate...in moderation, of course! Oh HAPPY DAY!

Happy Belated International Tatting Day, Chiclet!!!!! Too bad you didn't get to tat, but I'm glad you got to have some chocolate. I had to work that day as well. But I did manage a little tatting.
