It's so pretty!!! :)
Thank you. GK!
I like your JS doily more than his. That is because he often used yarn #10. I understand his choice, a matter of preference. But i prefer your version of his pattern. It is much more lacy!!
Interesting comnent, Talky. I often wish o could handle the heavier threads, as I do like the bulky, full appearance of JS's work.
I think you must be a tatter who likes to finish things and have something to show for your time - and quickly! I'm happy just to tat, and I am VERY slow. You are not bored, it's simply that you are sensing the end and your mind has moved forward in advance of your thread.
Maureen, I like the initial process of figuring it out. I think I like challenge, but complain about it! You're correct though - I have moved on in my mind.
The design elements really intrigue me, but I understand what you mean about feeling restless. I get to the point where I think, okay, I've got this. Let's move on to the next challenge. I do sometimes wish that my doily would tat itself once I understand what's going on!
I know the restless feeling. I am trying really hard to finish two WIPs from last year before I start any large new projects. Everything I see I want to tat. Your perseverence will be worth it in the end when you see your beautiful, completed creation.
Hard to describe the emotion, isn't it? : )
Good work! You'll be done before you know it!
Your effort will be payed back, the finished doily is really stunning, I've seen it in this blog: http://tattingfrivolitechiacchierino.blogspot.it/2015/01/blog-post_3.htmlBava Fox, only half way to the end!
You're at least tatting - and so quickly I can't keep up! What fabulous projects you have to show for your efforts! I can't seem to get motivated to pick up my shuttles, even though, like mb duke, I want to tat (almost) everything I see! I know I'll never do the big doilies you are doing. I would stop at the 5th round of the 'monster' and consider it done, even though I'm in awe of the finished masterpiece!) For some reason, at the moment I seem to be content to sit on the sidelines and cheer everyone on.
Kathy, you are such an excellent tatter that it is a shame you are not enjoying it at the moment. I suggest tatting a small one of say Karey Solomon’s or one of Jon’s smaller motifs to get you back in the shuttle again! : ))
