TattingI’ve got an ever-growing list of things I’d like to learn. At the moment it includes pearl tatting, downward facing picots, the pointed chain, and to get more comfortable with beads. I can use beads, and have many times, but I just don’t like them. But I’d like to like them. I’d also like to get more comfortable with my newly acquired skill in frontside/backside tatting.

I like making goals, and I like making them early. I often find that writing down some goals helps me to focus and I get a lot more out of my endeavors. Even if I don’t stick to the original goals, or modify them or drop them in the light of changing life-ness that happens, I get further than I would have without some kind of a plan.

What are your goals? What would you like to learn or practice or make or design? Please share your 2012 tatting plans.
