      Dear Rosa,
      I have been tatting for a long time. I teach and demonstrate tatting
      in my 1900's costume. I finished tatting a rectangle bag with white thread
      and lined it with red satin. It has a drawstring for closing and looks
      continuous all the way around. This took me three weeks. Donna
