My long-lasting and "chronic" passion - TATTING!!!

"Tatting? Is it like crocheting or knitting?" That's the question that a lot of people ask me every time I tell them I do tatting.My usual answer is: "Sort of." And then I go on and on trying to explain what tatting really is and how gorgeous and unique it is.
Some of you might already know that I have been doing tatting for quite some time (since 10 yrs to be exact). It was the love at first sight!!! Delicate and elegant tatted patterns captured my eye (and my heart) and never let them go. Tatting might seem tedious for some people. But to me, it's the best way to relax, escape the reality, and create truly exquisite and sophisticated works of art.
So, let me take you on a tour and show you what tatting is and what you can do with tatting.

My first big project back in high school. I presented this work at the exhibit in the local activity center for youth.
A recently completed doily. Experimenting with color and shape.

This exquisite napkin with a tatted edging can be a fabulous way to make a holiday table elegant and unique!

I am currently working on a new project without any particular idea of what it would be. It might be a doily or a table runner, or something else... Tatting is diverse and allows to be creative and spontaneous!

Blog Launch and Introduction

Hello everyone,
For those of you, who know me well (even though, I doubt it ;)), this will be a resource to keep up with my life in a cozy and private setting.
For those, who are only getting to know me, this would be an insightful and profound resource to explore who I am and what I enjoy doing in my spare time.
The purpose of launching this blog is to tell about myself, my hobbies, interests and life passions, share my joie de vivre with my followers and explore the world around together. I would also like to know what's everybody doing (hobby-wise and such), especially if it's something unique and exclusive.
