I started tatting November 1, 2007, and Matilda joined in on May 21, 2012.

When I was at Finger Lakes Tatting Conference I met some really great people, most of them are tatters but some were there to help with food and things of that nature. Thank goodness to everyone because I had a great time.
One of the tatters I met was Ruth M., who is a member of the Fringe Element Tatters. When we got home she emailed me information about the group.
Since I wanted to join, I had to pay the membership fee of one tatted heart. The website says "Because these membership hearts are handed out at local events to promote tatting, we suggest that you keep them small and simple." I used Ruth Perry's Fringe Heart,which I found on the Fringe Element Tatter's website. Since I'd filled my shuttle I made as many as I had thread for. Here they are.
They were made with size 20 Lizabeth thread.
I also signed up for their most recent exchange entitled 'Knot Tonight Josephine', which you may have already guessed is to tat something that incorporates Josephine Knots. (seriously what was I thinking!!) Any tips or good patterns would be appreciated :-)
If you are interested in being a part of the Fringe Tatter's group, check it out and be sure to tell Ruth, Bonnie sent you.
