Tatting and the Dog Days of Summer puzzle answers.

Gosh, only posted for one day, and tatters are demanding answers! Ok, Ok! Maybe it wasn't fair to use foreign words...but they are often encountered by tatters seeking new tatting pattern books. Yes, there was a reference to the Online Tatting Class.. if you want to know more just email me at tatting@BellaOnline.com Glad to know many of you found the Dog Days info interesting! One tatter wrote in with a note about the Dog Star, Sirius, and the Dogon people of West Africa. They believe that Earth was visited by beings from the Dog Star in pre-history. Fascinating. Hope you enjoyed the puzzle.
