I am a tatting warrior. I have been at this for about 12 hours!
This is the ‘Sunflower’ pattern from the Blomqvist, Tatting Patterns and Designs book. Wow. Confusing.
Went yesterday on a hunt for white kiddie-socks for Maeve:
I am not sure if I will use the invisible thread that Jane uses (it is a real pain) or #50 DMC thread in white to sew the edging on. It is so pretty!
I had to take my mind off that wretched doily for a bit so I started something... Nothing like a couple of clunies that I have not tatted in ages to keep the mind from wandering.
This HDT is Garden Afternoon #40, by Yarnplayer, a gift from my good pal Suneeti. Seems I have loved this colourway, since 2009, when I first saw it on Yarnplayer’s blog and had to have it! I love it!
Wander, it did, however, when I sewed in the ends with my mind
still meandering around the Blomqvist pattern:
No sympathy from this quarter:
