A month old tatter.

So you are going to be SOOO impressed.  Sarka's email popped into my inbox a week or so ago and I couldn't believe that she's only been tatting a month or so.  Just look what she tackled off my site!  Woweeee.  This is what she said:-

"My name is Sarka a and I have found your web with many wonderful tatting patterns. I tried tatting about three years ago but was completely unsuccessful and was not able to make a stitch. I gave it away and tried again a month ago and now I was successful and made some small flakes according to free patterns of Jon Yussof and Jan Stawasz. How I was happy. I am begginer (tatter for only one month) and self-taugt, so I am really happy for all improvement.

When I saw you Flowery SCMR bookmark, I was glamoured because it is so beautiful. And I said to myself - I must try it! Now I would like to show you what I have done and many thank you for this wonderful pattern!!! :-)) It was quite difficult for me, I did not know some methods what I need to do this bookmark. But I have found it on You tube, and learn how to do it and I am very happy I achieved.
Many thanks for this beautiful pattern again and I wish you many other pretty tatting!!!

Wow! I'm impressed! I know I wasn't that good after a year, and Sarka's been tatting a month?! Great job, Sarka! Thanks for sharing, Jane!

Wow! You're right - beautiful work. I still haven't gotten that bookmark just right, and I've been tatting much longer than one month :)
See how inspiring you are?

Wow, very impressive for a beginner. The colors on her bookmark look so pretty.

Holy moly! This is AMAZING!

How on earth can she do all this after only one month? Rock on Sarka! You are a natural!

Sarka is an inspiration and a testimony to the wonderful learning tools now available on the internet. My congratulations to her for hunting up the tutorials she needed and learning on her own. Her work is fabulous.

Many many many thanks all of you for your appreciation!!! I am really very happy that I learned tatting. I started with tatting this April and I am totally excited. Your words pleased me much and it is very very encouraging for next work :-)).

Wow! I just did that bookmark a few weeks ago and I don't think mine looked that good! It's so great to have patterns and instruction help on the Internet. Great job, Sarka, and thanks, Jane, for sharing with us.

Congratulations on a job very well done, Sarka. It really is truly amazing, we aren’t just flattering you. LOL I know my first tatting did not look like that. I bet your crochet work is beautiful, too.
Keep up the good work and happy tatting
