This little guy is a combo of two different patterns. The body is from The Complete Book of Tatting by Rebecca Jones and the hat you'll recognize from Jane Eberoll. My 22 year old daughter is very disinterested in my tattings and really doesn't want a snowflake or a bookmark. So, when I asked her what I could make her, she said, "a snowman." Well, I took up the challenge. Some of the patterns in this book are hard to see because the drawings are very small.
- Batty Tatter
- I retired early because my legs don't like holding me up for too long. So now I can do things in my own time. I like to sell things at farmers market. Most of which, I've made myself, e.g. homemade soap, crochet dish cloths, hand towels, baby afghans and of course,..tatting.

This is a tatted, large, doily I did as a Christmas present years ago for my mother-in-law. When she passed away, I got it back. I need to take a better picture of it. But it needs some pressing. It was a lot of work, because I made lots of mistakes that I had to cut out and redo.
