Tatted Sassy Turtle
I have been taking online tatting lessons from Teri Dusenbury . Her work is simply stunning. I was amazed at her talent; drooling whenever I saw her tatted and beaded creations. Teri used to have a blog where she shared numerous free tatting patterns (her own designs as well as vintage ones). For a long time, I did not know what happened to her until recently when I "bumped" into her on Facebook. I showed interest in learning from her and she asked me whether I wanted to be an online student (again "free of charge"). Teri has been extremely patient with me. Now I am so confident in being able to manipulate 130 - 150 inches of thread/cord and doing finger tatting. Yes, you heard that right - finger tatting with beads. Here is my first completed project in its entirety - SASSY TURTLE. I have started naming my turtles now.
