I think it looks great, and good for you for being able to leave your mistakes! So far I can't do that, crazy perfectionist that I am!
Now, true to form, I do not think I can keep going knowing all the mistakes that are in the border!
Before I read the comment just a few minutes ago, I was going to post and ask tatters what I should do - treat this as an exercise OR start again now that I have had some practice, after I had perused Snowy’s blog and pondered...
There are a lot of errors and the picot sizes are all over the place. Really, I think I must start again and not rush, but rather keep it as a long-term project and see if I can get this #100-ish size thread looking better than it does now. At least I got around one corner and know I can do that again...
Oh, yes, I forgot to mention that I am not tatting fs/bs as it is too confusing and to return to that old debate, I am finding it easier to tat this way, once i got over battling muscle memory!
I ventured over to Frivole’s blog, to check out the posts she had about it and I am rethinking if I actually might now prefer the look, as well as the ease of tatting this way! There is definitely a different appearance to it that initially I had considered to be not as attractive, but now I am not so sure.
At any rate, for this tiny stuff there is no option.
Ah, Kristen, you are the voice of my own conscience! Thanks. : ))
Surprises in the mail from Suneeti!
Thank you very much, my dear friend,
for remembering the Boys,
and for sending all this deliciously amazing thread to me!
Another wonderful gift arrived yesterday from my son, on his birthday, back from Peru. Thinking of my tatting, the lad found this!
It is even lined with a waterproof, anti-poke-through material. Delightful!
The shuttle that I sent with him was given to a woman in the small village where he purchased the case. An interpreter helped Adam explain about tatting, ( THAT must have been interesting!!!) and also left her with a couple of tatted pretties. He said she was very pleased; I saw the photos and would agree. This of course thrilled my little tatter’s heart immensely!
I sent other motifs so that Adam could give them to his guide. Apparently the man said his wife would be very interested in the tatting. All good! Mission accomplished.
Mr G is not sure at all
what the fuss was all about...
Definitely not impressed.
