Crochet and Tat

I can crochet.  Not talented by any means but I can do a little.  I'm definitely out of practice.  My 10 year old daughter went and found a crochet hook and yarn in my sewing room the other day and now she wants to learn.  I tried showing her a simple chain however she is a Leftie!  :-)  We did find a You Tube video that helped us get her started.  She now has my interest peaked and I have been playing around with it a little too.  I've never made a big project but think I may try.  She is like me and has big ideas of all the things she wants to make.  LOL  I'm not going to deter her though.  I'm glad she's interested.

I want to learn to TAT.  Some of my Great Grannies and Great Aunts can but not many.  Of course many of them have passed away and I can't sit with them.  I am fortunate enough to have some of their pieces or at least a small piece of them.  It's such a neat craft.  Do any of you reading this know how to tat?  Where's a good place to go (online or books or other resource) to learn? 

What things do you want to learn?  I hope I always want to keep trying something.  Even if my wishes are more than my time allows!  :-)  Have a wonderful Sunday!!  --Quiltpecan
