Can you see those tiny, little red beads?
They are so small I have to use a .4 hook, and I am very fearful of those.
Some of you may remember a number of very unfortunate painful encounters ...
Very slow going, especially with the beads, however, the design is marvellous.
This row is really brilliant. Jan Stawasz certainly knew his stuff!
Knowing about reverse tatting has really made this pattern a lot easier than
if I had been flipping back and forth - especially as it is now over a foot in diameter.
This one is for my daughter-in-law, who has always appreciated my tatting a lot.
The surprise is that my daughter, who is very supportive, but not - well you know -
hooked, so to speak, has requested one that she will then frame!
I am delighted.
