3 Tatting

I'm learning how to tat. It's a way to make lace and doilies and other pretty things. It takes a long time and lots of patience. But when I went to the Temple with Nick the other day to do sealings I couldn't stop staring at the beautiful tatted cloth. I looked it up and found some more information on it here and here(scroll down to the article Tatting for the Temple). And then I thought, "I have to do this." 

So, call me crazy, but I am going to learn how to tat and hopefully get good enough to donate a tatted cloth to a Temple. It will take me approximately 450 hours to do one. So why am I doing this? Because I've been reading this book and feel inspired by the women who served diligently and sacrificed everything they had to serve others. I want to make this to remember those women and their sacrifices. I want to make this to learn their patience and their unwavering faith and testimony.
