I am getting so excited as the end of this project is now in sight. This has been one of the most challenging tasks I have ever undertaken. Writing a book that is not just a tatting pattern book, but one that teaches a new technique as well, has almost driven me completely mental. I have been working on this essentially since 2007 when I first came up with the idea.
Designing is easy....communicating a pattern so that someone else can easily tat it is NOT EASY AT ALL!!!! But I do believe the goals I set for myself have been achieved as far as this particular project is concerned, so HALLELUJAH!
Now let me set the record straight. People keep asking me, "Have you ever heard of Helma Siepmann?"... As if! ((Ummmm YES!!!!)) I have both her books and NOOOOO, this is not regular encapsulation. Her books are fantastic, I highly recommend them but please understand my book is not a repeat of hers. You could say that my book is a step BEYOND Helma! So now you know!
Alright, so I reread this post and it may be coming accross as a little "ranty". Sorry, that is not my intent. I am in a silly mood today as you can tell by the many ALL CAP words up there. That, and I am overly excited about this book!
