Shhh..... just between us....
All I wanted was good tension; a shuttle that did not give up its thread so easily; a little co-operation. But, nooooooo!
All I got in response to my simple requests was slippage, fumble and dismay. Finally it all got too much for me; I mean how much must a tatter take? I could not stand it anymore...
YES... I ADMIT IT. I pinched the shuttle.....
It was an accident!
I confess: the Aerlits were made to order for me by LaCossette, who obliged when I asked her to cover my own Aerlits. So, this is not her fault. I cannot blame anyone but myself. I am sorry. Truly. Humbly.
Anyone else out there in Tat-Land not pleased with the tension in the Aerlit? Bah!
This does not happen with the Aero shuttle....
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this thread! Perfect Quilter. Thank you, Liyarra, who sent it to me as I had never used it before.
Before I had decided to re-do the Linda Davies doily by cutting what I had already done, I considered tatting it in completely different colours:
However, I might not actually go any further with the new one, as I am almost finished with the re-do, and am getting a bit fed up (as usual) with this pattern - lovely as it is! I will post the new version very soon.
The newly ordered Cèbèlia arrived in the post. I just had to try that pattern the Frivole and Janemactats have done as it was on my mind and worrying me that I would not be able to do it. I think I have figured it out... it is not quite as difficult as I had imagined. This one has intrigued me since I saw it on Frivole’s blog. It is the next project planned. : )
Progress on my Pine Plains pattern! I have one of the test-tat photos and it is beautiful! As soon as the other test tats are in I will post the pattern on Etsy.
p.s. HUGE sale on Perfect Quilter thread here. : ))
I’m afraid I succumbed to temptation....
Thanks, Liyarra.... : ))
