I gave the heart another go today... Cut off six yards of Twilight HDT, grabbed a ball of black and a needle and went for it...
Yup... you got it! It did it to me AGAIN! I spent around half of an hour trying to get out a knot with a size 14 crochet hook and sheer determination and... SNAP! *cries* I just needed to close that ring, do a chain, one more ring, on more chain and it would've been done! I was... 24 ds away from completion.
After that, I decided I'd just make a simple all-rings flower with what was left of the cut thread... Second ring and, BAM! Knot. Tried and tried and tried and... Snap.
I think the thread hates me! I wonder if maybe I'm creating some kind of bad mojo when I pick it up because my thoughts go to "Twilight" the movie and I instantly want to roll my eyes. Horrible trash in my opinion...
The Twilight Karma Gods are definitely out to get me via that wonderful thread... So sad... *pouts*
To make up for this (and a whole lot more), I was able to click "order" on my Amazon cart tonight... and did the one-month trial of Prime for the free two day shipping... FOUR new tatting books are heading my way! *squeals* One includes a DVD so that, hopefully, I'll finally be able to get the shuttles to cooperate with me so I can do needle or shuttle depending on the pattern. :-D ...and some new tatting needles, of course! (I'm starting to learn that I'm just as hard on them as I am on cell phones...).
Hopefully, everything will go as planned and everything will be here on Friday. ...If that happens, maybe I'll finish the bell I started way back so I can truly "ring" in the new with tatting. ;-)
Peace, Love, and lots and thread,
P.S. That reminds me... I need new threads. I realized that I don't have any blues which is just..blasphemy. So, what are YOUR favorite threads and/or brands?
