Lobsters are red!

What a stupid subject line!!!

I made this lobster which can be found here after a conversation with a young lady who is at a London fashion school doing a degree.

I've worked with youngsters like this before and it's great. I like to encourage anybody with any interest in shuttle tatting to use it in their work. Not sure exactly what she'll want next but her first love is the lobster which I did over Wednesday and Thursday evenings.

Exciting day today - I'm meeting Crazy Mom Tats and we're going to spend the day together while I show her the local sights.  More on that on Monday.

  2. Your subject line sounds like the beginning of a poem...

    Lobsters are red
    Blue fish are blue
    Tatting is fun
    No matter which hue.

    I don't think I'll be up for any poetry awards, but this is my contribution.

  4. Jane, this is like an optical illusion ! If I focus even slightly on the cephalothorax, it looks like a body builder showing off his/her biceps, etc. Ooo, this is fun !!!
