Happy International Tatting Day

No it's not an April fool's day joke. It's real April 1st is International Tatting Day. It is a day of tatting, talking about tatting, and eating chocolate. I know, I know, it's like some one made a day especially for me.

In order to celebrate today I did alot of eating of chocolate, so I figured I'd spend this evening doing some tatting.

It's Jane's Flying Pig (that link will take you to her's on her blog page), but the pattern can be found here. Mine is made using size 20 Lizabeth pink and white thread. It is #6 of The 2012 UIU Project.

My friend Linda's very good friend, Jody, passed away recently. I'm not sure of the story but I know that Jody liked flying pigs, so when I saw Jane's pattern I had to make one for Linda.

Thanks for another fun pattern, Jane.

I hope everyone had a great ITD!

I love the flying pig! I'm sure Linda will treasure it, especially when she thinks of happy times with Jody.

Happy International Tatting Day!
