SUMMARY- This isn't a tatting instruction book. It teaches the catechism hidden in the verses of "The Twelve Days of Christmas", and uses pieces tatted from Pam Palmer's tatting instruction book with the same title(that is "The Twelve Days of Christmas") to illustrate the verses as she gives them and their hidden meaning. I was charmed by this bit of eclectic religious trivia - Ms. Hahn put a lot of thought and care into its construction. If you're a Roman Catholic, I'd hunt it down as a gift for family members who would enjoy the message as well as the tatting.
