Colorful tatting array
Words cannot express how proud I am of these girls. They are super smart and catch on so quickly...even with the language barrier.
Today we learned blocking and the Josephine chain.
Just look at the beautiful stems on these and this is their very first attempt.
I always give them a little homework and they usually go above and beyond what I ask of them. See the other motifs in here? Hye Soon free tatted one....I think we may have a potential designer on our hands. She showed Kyoung-Mi the motif and Kyoung-Mi tatted one too!
Jinju is an especially fast learner. You just have to show her once and she is off to the races.
The girls took me out for a birthday dinner. You can see photos here on Hye Soon's blog. It was soooo much fun! I think they were making fun of the way I was holding the chop sticks and there I was so proud that I could even use chopsticks (:
The food was spicy and delicious. It was a wonderful experience.
Also you can see some tatting on her blog too!
