Most everyone is familiar with the name Teri Dusenbury - she's a published author of tatting books (Tatting Hearts, Tatting Butterflies), a prolific designer, and an excellent tatter. She also has ablog and currently is featuring Dream Turtles - if you haven't seen them, please go take a look. They are absolutely beautiful!
I have several of her little beauties - I wore one to work the other day, and everyone wanted to know where I got it - some thought jewelry store, other thought artisan shop. I told everyone who asked where to find them, and most were amazed that they are tatted. I just smiled and reminded them - "It's not just about doilies anymore!"
I'm also trying to decide what to make for this year's ornament that I'll give to my co-workers in my department. Last year, I gave this lovely bell - designed by Marilee Rockley - and everyone really liked it. I've given out snowflakes and angels - anybody have any suggestions??
