I admit that I uttered the trucker-talk “F""word a couple of times
when I saw what I had done way back at the very beginning.
There was no fixing this.
The title of this post could well be another example:
I tatted this to see what would happen if I tatted Linda Davies’s Star Attraction Doily in very different colours than what Miranda has done beautifully begun here.
This is where the error happened:
I started it originally in #80:
But this was very taxing so I switched to #40 Lizbeth and Altin Basak pink (#50)
I was so disappointed when I saw what I had done as there is still a good bit left to tat and I quite like this pattern. I am very tempted to tat it again, but I will use other colours. I am so trying to get rid of the old stuff...
Slowly, I am working through my threads and have diminished my stash immensely to this:
It really is a very modest stash now, don’t you agree? I should perhaps begin to add some new colours...heheh
Forgot to show you what my daughter has been giving away as little gifts to her friends: lavender (she grows it) sachets! Just look it this! Mummy’s handiwork getting all the outer glory!
One last thing...
I found these tiny elastics at the drugstore and they are absolutely perfect for wrapping about a ball of thread so that it stays wound! Love them!
If you look at the stash-pic, you can see every ball has an elastic around it. Makes a tatter proud. : )
