I finally gathered my courage and decided to join The 25 Motif Challenge Aren't you proud of me? LOL.
Now, the tatting of today --so far. I made another cross. The extra picots bothered me, so I changed the pattern a bit and then I decided I wanted to use these pretty beads from a necklace that I took apart a while back. Here's the final product:
I also used a bigger button, the thread just kind of outlines it when it's sitting right --which I could NOT for the life of me get it to do for scanning... every time I flipped it over to scan it, it moved... GRRRRR... It is now sitting on my ironing board and, hopefully, I'll gather the courage to do some stiffening this weekend. Maybe tonight after I grow some "beer balls"? LOL.
I may also have another person or two to teach... Here I am still learning and I'm gathering "students" left and right. LOL. This will bring the count to three, possibly four. For #3, I must thank TotusMel whose designs inspired my thirteen-year-old niece's friend to learn to tat. :-) A tatting pool party will be held on Wednesday while I'm doing laundry. It seemed best that way so I can just handle one person at a time. I don't want to be answering three people's questions all at once. :-) I'm not like that. LOL. No patience in me for stuff like that.
Wow... I wrote all of that two hours ago! LOL... Sending now and then hoping to tat something else tonight!
