Carved Hearts with Tatting

Wood and Lace Together

I love Tatting and I love Wood Carving.

With this post I would like to show you the two combined.

The design is simple and is made as a Necklace Pendant.  A small eyelet is attached at the top to be ready to hang on the chain.

So – if you have a Wood Carver in your life somewhere… engage the person to get involved with your Lace. They work great together.

About The Tatting Whisperer

Hi my name is Murray Lincoln. I am now retired and loving the free time to create with my Tatting and Wood Carving, sometimes bringing the two together. I began my journey with Tatting in 1975. While visiting my Great Aunt in a Senior's Home in Des Moines, Iowa, she told me the story of my Great Grandpa that was a Tatter. As well he was a Wood Carver and had carved three Hickory Shuttles for his three daughters. One of these daughters was my Grandma Lincoln. My Grandma Lincoln may have been the greatest Tatter ever - so my Great Aunt told me. Grandma Lincoln Tatted from age 8 years until she passed away in her 80s. Today I am a Tatter, so are my two daughters and also my Granddaughter Emma. six Generations now have carried on this beautiful craft. My Web Site featuring my creations is http://www.murraylincoln.com/
