I gave the scissors their first real test. This is definitely not a statement that a tatter wants to hear!
Had to cut off that fourth round when tatted in the variegated thread as it was just too much, so I continued with the blue/grey and it is much better.
This row is slow-going; with the beads and the repeats and the clover, it is going to take a while.
See? You cannot see the pattern as well.
A lot of you called the colour in this grey, but it is actually my favourite shade of blue - kind of a 'French blue':
Anything in these colours could convince me to say whatever I had to, to not change a single shade, colour or tone. I think Diane will agree with me. These colours make me absolutely swoon!
His favourite colour - blue.
His appreciation of tatting - nil.
His love of thread - monumental.
