SUMMARY- The book states on the title page that this is part 2 of "Tatting - Knotty But Nice". I got this copy from an estate sale, along with a large collection of the more commonly found tatting books and a handful of TATSY kits. I didn't know that Ms. Coates had done a second book until I discovered it in with the rest of the books I'd bought as a lot, and I've been at this for quite a while. This is a delightful little half-size book with illustrations that look like they were neatly hand-colored with markers. It demonstrates the range of possibilities in using up those leftover bits of thread to make attractive cards to send to your friends and family. She gives you illustrations and silly quotes like "...waddle i do without you." It's guaranteed to bring a smile to anyone's face.
