Yesterday I received a booklet with the details of next year's competitions. Lo and behold, there's a tatting section! I shall do my bit to 'promote interest and thus to ensure that the craft will not become extinct'. I was thinking of doing Jane Eborall's Friendship bookmark, which is one of my favourites, but when I read the booklet more carefully, it said that the overall theme of the competition is flowers, so I had better choose a pattern that includes flowers. Plenty of scope there. There are a number of other rules and regulations to abide by, eg you can use coloured thread but not variegated thread. Not sure the point of that one, but there you go.
