'coz we are tatters

Pin It now!

On International Tatting Day, 2015,
this nonsense verse is dedicated to us, the quirky Tatterati !!!

'Coz We Are Tatters 

The room is all a-clutter
The family a-grumble,  a-mutter,
But my heart is still a-flutter,
Stashing more thread is all that matters
'Coz I am a tatter.

"That money's for food !"
Oh, honey, I'm sure we're good.
Need a new shuttle in wood
Diversifying my collection is all that matters
'Coz I am a tatter .

There's a new book online
Well I mayn't tat a design
But that book has to be mine
Stocking my library is all that matters
'Coz, peeps, I am very much a tatter !
                     (muskaan . March 2015)

Make lace, not war :-D

Earlier today (31st March), Patty D, in a Craftree thread, wished that "there was a Tatter's Song". That’s when my brain went into overdrive ;-P   Well, I couldn't belt out a verse on tatting,  but tatters & our obsession with collection did emerge .

Feel free to use it as you wish (with credit).... spread tatting and good cheer today, and always :-D

 Chat 'n' Tat 'coz we're the Tatterati !!!


  1. Very cute did you write this?

  2. Hehehee! Great job! Do you mind if I use this? Giving you credit, of course! I don't have a lot going for International Tattering Day this year and I'd love to have this as my quote of the day!

    1. Go right ahead and use it ! Glad it brought a smile :-D

  3. Love it! Happy International Tatting Day to you muskaan :).

  4. :-) love your song Muskaan, have a happy tatting day.

  5. Am still tatting, Jane and had a large bite of a large Toblerone ;-P
    Glad you enjoyed the song :-)

  6. I found a stash of Toblerone's in the junk food bin some months ago...they are long gone by now! Lovely tatting bouquet by the way :)

    1. Lol, now That's a stash that will never 'grow' .... it will naturally get depleted in record time ;-D
      Glad you like the bouquet ... The 2 toffees at the bottom right are Usha's pattern. Rest are all my own doodad.

  7. Love it! Happy tatting day!

    1. Thanks Ninetta :-) Happy tatting to you, too .... may you continue to inspire :-)

  8. Fabulous Muskaan. It was the words of the song, it only remains to find a music composer.

    1. Merci, Lilas :-) Now who will take up the gauntlet ;-P ???
      Hope you had a fun tatting day

  9. Love your song, very true of tatters
    Hope you had a great day

    1. So glad you enjoyed the song, Margaret :-D
      Yes, I did do quite a lot of tatting in the evening (Wiosna doily), besides sipping tea & munching on chocolate ;-P
