Yup... I fell off the face of the earth again... I really should stop doing that, but I just seem to get distracted and then I end up busy, busy, busy. I kind of have a job now, but it's unpredictable so that's taking up some time too. I'm thinking that I MUST master the shuttle so that I can actually take tatting along with me when I go anywhere...
Anywho, I went to scan the cross that I tatted today and I found this on my scanner! LOL. It was a nice surprise.... Apparently, I scanned it on March 8th and never posted it --and forgot all about it. Oops. Well, at least I can now say that March wasn't a complete waste! ;-)
It's "Beginner's Choice" (page 23) from Tatted Bookmarks Needle & Shuttle edited by Barbara Foster done it LizBeth Country Side (117) and Blue Med (651). Yup... that's right, I ordered the right thread to match Country Side... and they DO match! LOL.
Now, today's cross that led to my discovery, LOL...
Pattern: "Heritage Cross" by Dee Powell
Book: Tatted Bookmarks Needle and Shuttle edited by Barbara Foster
Thread: LizBeth, Gold (611), Size 20.
It needs to be blocked, definitely... and I'm still debating about the tassel that's supposed to go at the top... But, it's done... and I didn't mess it up! LOL.
Well, I hope all is well with everyone. I plan to have more to show soon. :-) I've missed tatting SO much!!!!
