So, I started tatting a pattern and messed up. Big disappointment as I was using the thread that gave me mucho problemos last night. GRRR... The mess up was my fault, though, as I J-ed to the wrong P in petal six. Argh! Life, though, shall carry on. I'm just not sure that I'll be tatting any more tonight. I had a full day and feel a little blah, I guess.
So, I know have only 16 followers, not all tatters, but I was wondering if any of my "followers" (what is this, a cult? ROFL) would be open to a small exchange of some sort. I realized that I've never actually touched, held, or seen in person, a piece of tatting other than when I tat. I wonder if actually holding even a ring tatted by someone else could give me more insight into what I'm doing and what the final outcome should really feel like, etc... This, of course, will require me to tat something small for an exchange, but... Anyone interested? Even if it's just a simple little flower, I'll be happy as a pig in slop --and can easily tat a 4-8-8-4, [4+8-8-4]3x, 4+8-8+4 flower. LOL. (Pattern from memory, I believe it's the medium flower from "Flower and Spray" from the Beeton book? ...It's one of the intatters.com Need Photo patterns. I don't have green thread to do the whole thing, so I've been practicing with flowers.).
Okay, enough rambling from me. Maybe I should try my hand at tatting again tonight...
