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 !

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 !!!
