The back-up is done and I found it an unpleasant tat. Not sure why, but the outer part buckles and the inner round is very tight, and the small rings overlap more than they should, according to the picture.
The colours got to irritating me as well. Grumpy. Not entirely my fault as I have not been feeling up to par the past couple of days. Didn't even tat yesterday. Not one ds! (and the new teal lingerie - hate it! Not my style and can't stand the colour! So much for a big savings!)
Now I am back to the hankie border and really (finally) enjoying the pure white with clear beads. It is going to be pretty, and for once I am not feeling that I need to rush to finish. This is new...
Have been thinking a lot about tatting and where i want to go with the whole shuttle and thread thing. I realize I am definitely not a doily person. Never have been, but they are a great device for learning stitches and developing patience. Now I have a whole box of them languishing in my cupboard!
Not being a person who wears jewellery, I have not been drawn into the whole earring, necklace and bracelet thing either.
Yesterday, when I saw a photo of Jane here, (which I rather like a lot, Jane, and I do NOT think you look like an old git here at all, but a rather a very fetching 'woman of a certain age!') I started thinking once again of what I want to do with my NEED to tat.
Those thoughts are still all in a jumble, but I am going through some sort of transition at the moment... I'll let you know when I find out myself what this is all about!
