#19 MCEverything that could go wrong did. You name it. I feel like a rank beginner after this one, but I was determined to finish. Here 's what happened.
Ran out of thread - Coron #20, sent to me by umintsuru through The Thread Exchange . So, I just added the pink and some beads, thinking, oh foolish me, that this could actually be a fortuitous development.
(Anybody know of a North American outlet for this thread? It is like Olympus, also Japanese, and is silky and wonderful to tat with. I checked around on-line, hurriedly, and got nowhere in my search.)
Then, I ran smack into the old, directional bogeyman. At the end, I was wild with frustration, as I contorted my hands, the thread and my coffee table trying to find which way was up!
Really, I should not be surprised, as I find I usually must tat Mary Konior's patterns at least once to find the rhythm. At the onset, I thought this one was gong to be a piece of cake. Surprise!
Has anyone out there in Tat-land done this one?
I am going to tat something really easy now. Sigh...
