Big emphasis on 'Fur'.
Both are beautiful, but the fur belongs on and to the one on the left. Unfortunately, the one on the right hoovers it all right up and will not let go.
I discovered this when I checked out the last motif I posted; the picture, large on my monitor, was COVERED with CAT HAIR! Gross!
How do you remove animal hair from your work? I mean, short of washing it. I wave it around, pull out individual hairs with my fingers and have considered using tape...
Currently working on Jon's 'Spring Blossom', with LadyShuttlemaker's HIMALAYAN POPPY, #50.
There are a lot of stop and go's, as I am living with 2 small children at the moment.
I do not know how tatters with youngsters get anything done - let alone complete some of the gorgeous work posted on so many sites. I have just about given up doing any tatting on this sojourn! Too many interruptions!
Hoping in a big way that the problems I am encountering with this pattern can ALL be blamed on the small fry and NOT on my tatting abilities!
