I found a pattern for Christmas decorations embellished with tatting. Full of enthusiasm I dashed out and bought a whole box of pretty iridescent tree balls to cover with tatting. This is how far I have got. I have to tat enough to go all round the ball, then circles to put on top of the ball and on the bottom, then lace the whole thing together. I think my grand dream of giving these as small gifties is fading, it has taken me too long to get even this far, I think I am about halfway around one Christmas ball!
