I have about 20 - 25 tatters who come to my groups every month and at Christmas, instead of Christmas cards, I like to give them something tatted that they can use every year. The first year I made them Christmas crackers. I remember sitting in the waiting room at the garage while the car was in for its annual service, as this took over two hours I tatted about eight of the sprigs of holly to go on the crackers.
In 2008 I thought that I'd give them a diary for 2009 with a pattern for each month throughout the year. In the dark days of winter I like to look for the first snowdrops so this is what I did for January.
