Vinnie's Spring Doily 2
This has been a bit of a challenge, but after a lot of false starts, I think I have it now!
Unfortunately, I have very little of this HDT, Corsage, by Yarnplayer. Isn't it beautiful? I have had to use a plain colour for one shuttle, because of the fear of running out, and so there are a lot of SLT's and little specks of the light lilac thread show through at most joins. I think it will all be okay after I block it. I sure hope so!
Something has shifted in the way and approach I am taking to tatting. I cannot quite define what it is but I find I am not as stressed as usual, and although everything seems impossibly difficult these days for no reason - I seem to be all thumbs - it doesn't bother me as much. I suppose I am aware that this phase will pass. I think my muscle memory and my brain are finally getting in sync, somehow.
There is new enjoyment in each individual stitch as I tat and I am really enjoying the process, being not as focused on the end result. I hope this part of the development continues, because it is refreshing compared to the breakneck pace I have had since I started this peculiar pastime. It probably won't!
BTW, Chiclet of TattingChic is having a super giveaway to celebrate her two years of blogging.
