After so much Cebelia in my shuttle, I had forgotten how marvelleous the HDT really is!
I am trying so hard to do each stitch perfectly, with all the bases covered: no colour showing through, no gaps, even picots - you know the drill.
At first, when I posted this, I thought - this is better! - and then on closer inspection, no cigar! I can see such glaring errors; though, overall, I can definitely admit that I have progressed, even since the Fringe event.
I think with tatting, as with all endeavours that one cares about, it is mostly a two steps forward, one back, kind of progression. At least, in my life , that is the case.
I am taking a break from the strawberries for a day or so, as I finished the crochet work ( yuck!) last night, and have just two more berries to do and the border, which MUST be white. Miranda, you were right: if the reds don't match, don't do it!
