Some of my tatting

Thought I would post some pics of my tatting that I have been doing. I've only been tatting a couple of months so it's not perfect, but when I get better at it, I want to start selling tatted jewellery. This is my fave so far I think. Going to do it in different colours ( black should be nice ) and it will be a bracelet.

I really love tatting, it's the first crafty thing I've ever enjoyed and I think I'm doing ok, but my stuff needs to be a lot better before I can sell it. I just hope it DOES get better.
These are also bracelet ideas I had, just trying out different designs etc. 
 This is one I'm working on, it needs another row adding to it.

So, like I said, I hope I'm making good progress. Would be great to find a tatting group up here but I haven't found any yet. Moral support, you know ?

Nature Always Finds A Way

There's an old school (VERY old) in my town which is now used as a small office/ business centre. It has a low wall all around the grounds. And every year, in the little nooks and crannies, wildflowers appear. And I think it's lovely. Sometimes dandelions ( yes I know people consider them a weed, but look at them, they're glorious ) and lots of this.

As a species we are making a go of covering this wonderful planet in concrete. But always, nature finds a way.
