It is a snowy day in winter today. Snow drifted up even with the door step and more to come this evening. It is an absolutely perfect day to tat! I had no pattern in mind so as I got out my shuttles, I began to run down some names and titles for inspiration. Rather like a tatting abc's list. Maybe the list I came up with will inspire your next tatting project.
