The link isn't working properly for February's pattern so if you would like it click on 'Cariad Tatting' on the left and you'll find it on my website under 'Patterns'. It's called ' 'Marion' - a coaster.
My husband of 42 years died in 2006. I have three children, two daughters and a son and four grand children, one girl and three boys.
I trained as a teacher of Home Economics in the 1960s but have been interested in crafts since I was six.
I learned how to crochet and do embroidery because I wanted to make a matinee jacket for my new baby brother.
I taught myself to tat when I left school, over 40 years ago and I'm still learning.
