Well, all those months and it was finished and I did like it. Actually, I liked it very much and I hardly ever say that!
It has been wrapped up and is awaiting a visit with an old friend who saw a photo of it and said it would look wonderful in her traditional home. I was so pleased I said of course she should have it.
This was a person who recognized and stopped me on the street yesterday - we had not seen one another for about fourteen years! Coffee, two hours talk, laughter, photo-sharing and catching up; the intervening years completely disappeared.
Upon returning home, I immedietely wrapped up the tatting and so it's awaiting its new abode. I realize, once again, for me, satisfaction is all in the process. I really don't care at all about the final product, as long as it is the best I can do; I do not want to see it in my all white sparsely furnished dwelling. I just like to tat! What about you?
Renukek row six is almost complete:
This looks great and feels so substantial compared to my regular pieces in #80. I do miss the fine threads however!
However, this is a nice change and I love the colour of the combined blues. The threads have a mildly sticky feel, rather like Valdani, and I guess they are not a 6-ply.
A successful experiment is always a pleasant event!
