Oh, but it wouldn't be a Fox tat without beads, would it?It's looking terrific! I usually can't get anything that big to lie flat without stopping to block every round or two. Yours is lying very nicely, which tells me you must have really good tension.
Still an awesome work of art in progress!! :)
I have to admit I wouldn't have the patience, but it's going to be spectacular! I definitely admire your dedication and perseverance!
oh my goodness, you are truckin'!that looks so good, you can be very proud of what you have accomplished. and your grandson will be pleased with his gift. Are you needing a thread delivery?
Thanks to anyone who has been following the progress of this mammoth doily. your suppost has been very helpful in keeping me on course.Miranda, I was really pleased with what you said about the tension. I hadn’t even thought about it, but after your words I had a look and lo and behold, the tension does look pretty consistent! I must have made a breakthrough and didn’t even notice. That must be the unexpected positive that comes out of tatting something this large. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. It is rewarding to notice.Fox : )
Just don't stop to think about it now! Thinking about it will only mess you up!
Miranda, you are so right. The moment I finished writing all that rubbish, I blocked it completely!Fox : ))
Wow - it just gets better and better! And I do like the red :)
Cindy, So funny about the red. I had no intention of having so much of it, but I do not like tatting in Finca very much, so was loathe to buy more than the first two balls I purchased because I thought it would be mainly honey - with smaller insertions of red bits. Little did I realize, at the time, just how much thread would go into this piece, so there has to be almost equal use of both colours - or I will run out!Fox : )
Your mat is lovely. After you're done bead time will seem well worth it. Karen in OR
I really admire your stamina with this mat. Great work!
