Pay Off


It has taken me days to finish the centre of this Lucky Clover piece. Maybe it will be finished by St. Patrick’s Day. Maybe.

Thanks, Stephanie, for the tip about the dds. It is a good trick to pull out when there are long chains.

I am really happy with the look of it and taking time has definitely made a difference in the quality of my tatting.

Now, if I can keep the pace slow, perhaps my work will continue to reflect the added attention. That is the goal.

  5. Taking your time is really paying off. Your stitches look lovely, and the long chains in particular are very even and lay just right. I know it can be frustrating to go so slowly, but the result is well worth it.
