And another two ... that makes it seven. Actually I have tatted eight, but one of those was a wash because I missed a ring.
I could not get this last one right and must have un-tatted and cut it at least six times, which is a lot on such a tiny project!
I think this occurred because this particular Perfect Quilter is very thin ( because of the the dye??) - it seems much thinner than the others.
Also, it seems especially tiny to me as I am using a #10 on another project that I have begun, but more about that another time.
Now, the Ellen Stafford pattern: I am not going to continue this doily. I got halfway through the next round and realized I was not liking it much. The last round was removed.
Tatting this did inform me about how the Perfect Quilter tats up and also how I do with#80 thread, so the exercise was fruitful, but finished it now is. Maybe it will make its way to The Boss.
NOW... THE NEWS!
Terri’s First Project!
Terri is someone I met a while ago when buying some needles at a local craft store. We got to talking about tatting, which she had never done before and I directed her to tat-ology. She seemed pretty enthusiastic, but you can never tell.
Well! A few days ago I was in that shop again and lo and behold there was Terri and though she was shy at first in front of the camera, she became braver as she saw I was obviously so very delighted with her first project! Isn’t it just great? And she loves to tat!!!
Shy no more, Terri!
One last thing...
I had some thread on the shuttles, so tried out a pattern in the Occhi Peacock book - all chains. I rather like it.
