Black Magic Complete!

News Alert from New York City!
Black Magic Complete!

I have been obsessed with this pattern. It has been retro-tatted more than tatted, caused headache and fist clenching. My jaws are sore. My shoulders ache. I didn't enjoy tatting it much, but have been determined to conquer this challenge... I LOVE IT! So much, that I found a computer to post this! Gotta go!

  1. Looks great! I've actually used this pattern to make a garter, in black, with a black ribbon running through the big holes and a red organza ribbon rose for trim. I have not had an occasion to wear it but I love it and can't bear to give it away!

  2. Congratulations on finishing the Black Magic pattern bookmark! It looks great! I think I remember some "hair-pulling" moments the first time I tatted it.

  3. Brava! Well worth the effort - it's gorgeous!

  4. Hooray! A round of applause is in order!

  5. Congratulations! The Black Magic milestone has been passed with great success. Now that you are in the groove, you should probably tat another one (says she, ducking to avoid being conked on the noggin by the heavy object that was just tossed across the room)

    Thank you all so much for responding to this post! I was so happy to finish this tat and it was very rewarding to receive such lovely comments so quickly.

    Yes, Suzanne, I am winding the shuttle for another try..... NEXT week..... or after that.... : ))

    Krystle - GOOD LUCK!!

    Gina, Sounds very sexy! Oh - do not give it away!

    Julia - Thanks for time away from needles and yarn!

    TattingChic - You always inspire me!

  7. It looks great! I've made this pattern before and had a few retro tatting minutes. Suzane is right you should make another while you're in the groove.

  8. Hi Victats,
    Nice to see another tatting Canuck! I will get back to Black Magic - soon. But I cannot face it right away! Got to get back to the clunies!

  9. This is stunning! I've never done tatting but you have inspired me to try! I think I'll try something a bit easier though :)

  10. Wow, quirkybitsnpieces,

    Thanks for telling me that!

    Yes, get yourself a shuttle and check out InTatters for all kinds of ideas, info, and help. : ) Fox
