Here is a link to a lovely little poem from 1889, about a girl whose tatting is described as entrancing and magical. So much so that she will snare a ‘human heart’….ahhh tatting is a wonderful art.
I especially like the lines “Her delicate fingers deftly wrought , A pattern as fine as a fairy’s thought,” ….really gives the image of beautiful lacework. I wonder if there are many other poems about tatting? Something to keep an eye out for I think.
