I have a few obsessions–reading, The Vampire Diaries, makin-stuff-with-my-hands…. But since I talk about TVD(and anything Joss Whedon) all the time, and the book I’m currently reading is from my RITA judging packet(So no matter how freaking much I WANT to talk about it–but dude, it’s good), that leaves Crafts!
Specifically: Needle Tatting
Most people are unfamiliar with tatting in any form, which is really not surprising since it kind of went out of fashion in the Victorian era, but there are a few wily weirdos still trying to keep the antiquated art alive. Many through modernization.
I’m utterly obsessed with needle tatting. And I don’t make doilies. I don’t often make trim for anything(I did t gthis Christmas for my mom’s scrubs–which are the standard ceil blue and dulldulldull), but I looooove to make tatted jewelry.
So, in preparation for my March release(book2 YAY), Uncovering Her Secrets, which has nary a mention of tatting or any other handicrafts… I thought I’d have a little tatted jewelry giveaway! If you link two utterly unrelated things, then they have their unrelatedness in common. LINKED! OH, and March’s Medical has awesome jewelry on the cover(not tatted though). But that’s totally linked 🙂
Do you have any crafts, or–you know–obsessions? Leave comment, and I’ll pick at random Monday to send someone the pendant. No entry constraints (I do not discriminate based on anything, you know like vocation, favorite color…even if it is orange, or geographic location! AKA International shipping OK!)
(Also, the link above takes you to the US Amazon where you can see the same picture… but different. I think I like it with the warmer red and the model with the darker hair. Interesting that they are different.)
