July 8, 2010

I spent, well, all day tatting but only have one "finished" piece to show for it.  I revisited Brigit's Button Cross --found at

It's not blocked not have the final strings been cut --Can you tell I'm intimidated by all of that?

 Hubby agreed that I've definitely gotten better.  Not quite "there" yet, but this is definitely an improvement over my last attempts at this pattern.  I have a few ideas in my head I'd like to try, too.  I wrote one out the other night and realized that it wouldn't work as I wanted it to, so I'm going to try again.  If it works it *might* be really cute, but I think I'm going to re-do the design a bit... and I got inspired for something else too with tatting.  :-)  I have not found or seen the ideas in my head anywhere online, so I'm really hoping that they work so I can feel an added pride and confidence... 

Well, I hope that you're all having a wonderful week filled with plenty of air conditioning!  The heat has been BRUTAL here this week!  *makes sick face*  Disgusting, that's the only way I can think to describe it.

Thank you, Suztats!!! :-*

Shannon: Again, congrats on the Fishing and Wishing win!!! And, I doubt that! LOL. Could be a matter of color, but I'm sure you're tatting was better... Maybe just a button/thread size thing?
