A First For Me After Three Years!

I did not have one un-tat 
in the first part of this Iris Niebach pattern!  
Unheard of success for a brand new pattern! 

I think the zentangles are just the thing I needed. I seem to be more relaxed at tatting, but I hold that fine pen in an iron grip now!

Love the #40 HDT from Jess.  Such pretty colours, and I like the stiffness of the thread, for it holds the shape of the stitches beautifully.


  1. congrats on the first repeat. that colorway is very pretty. it will make a very pretty motif/doily.
    can't wait to see it finished.

  2. Envy is seeping through... I will tat without making a mistake... I think I can... I think I can... I think I can...

    Congratulations! Love the thread!

  3. Thanks, you guys! I am afraid to continue after blowing my own horn like that, but I was SO excited!
    Diane, I hope I can continue like this... I hope I can... I hope I can... I hope I can.... : ))

  4. Hooray! And well done. That thread is very pretty!

  5. Well done love the colour give your self a pat on the back!
