A special thank you to those who came here, commented, joined my blog. However, this has become too much for me. I'm an artist first and a tatter second I guess. So, I am dismantling this site. Had there been more enthusiasm perhaps I would have plugged away at it, but I feel the loss of this blog is no great thing to anybody.

A Simple Little Edging:
This is great for beginners or needle tatters....a simple edging that will look good on just about anything.
I've used size 30 Cebelia.
Shuttle & ball: R 3 ds, p, 3 ds, 3 p sep by 1 ds, 3 ds, p, 3 ds, CLR. *Turn work. Ch 5 ds, 3 p sep by 1 ds, 5 ds, Turn Work. R 3 ds, j to last p of last R, 3 ds, 3 p sep by 3 ds, 3 ds, p, 3 ds CLR. * Repeat * to * until you reach the desired length.
Note that on my work I made the center picos large - you can do yours all the same size or like mine.
