When the pupil is ready the teacher appears: Maureen, from Australia. I guess after two years, I was really ready to learn how to attach a thread properly and to learn the weaver's knot. Even after all the T.A.T. courses, and all the on-line material I have worked with, I have been winging it. Ah, such a big faker!
Then, poof! You said some magic turn of phrase, and suddenly, with no warning, it all clicked! (I think it was the word, "popped" that did it.) Thank you!
Yesterday, I had to cut a whole section out of a motif, which I am just about finished, and I was MAD! Really upset as there are a lot of beads to string on this little piece. But then - your words from the last comment erupted in my brain and voilà - a tiny miracle!
After so much tatting excitement, I relaxed without beads or bravado - for a change - and tatted a simple motif in TWO variegated threads. Such a no-no! The pink one is Lizbeth and the other is a green from Yarnplayer; both size 40 - I think!
