Hanging by a Thread

Get the drift? Hear the wee bit of frustration? Here I go again. No, not Black Magic! I'm over that. But, Mary Konior has worked her way into my brain and is keeping me in stitches - stitches that are retro-tatted over and over and over........

What is it about instructions ? If I just follow the instructions...

Here is what I am up to.

This is the LadyShuttleMaker HDT - Apricot Mousse - that just I totally wasted. Ah, well. I have started for the FOURTH time and SEEM to be doing all right...so far so good. Isn't the colour great?

Hopefully, I will not have to begin number 5!

The Pattern? Spinning Wheel Glass Mat, of course!

  1. The Spinning Wheel Glass Mat must be my favorite pattern... I've made so many of them! I love the color you've chosen, so I hope you get past your frustration. I think you'll love the end result!

  2. LOL! Fox, you are so funny. That is exactly why most of us don't use HDT on a pattern we haven't tried before, LOL! Just food for thought...just "apricot mousse" for thought! ;)

    I'm sure it will all turn out great once you get the hang of it. :)

  3. LOL! You do enjoy torture, don't you? I've done this one a few times - had trouble with it every time, simple as it seems. Good luck! Thread is very pretty!

  4. Diane, I am loving it already. This is fun to do!

    TattingChic, I could not wait! I loved the thread so much, I had to use it! No will power with HDT!!!

    Gina, If there is a difficult way to do something, trust me, I WILL find it! : )
