My dry spell appears to be over! I've managed to tat two snowflakes without any major snafus! These are Motif #11 from DMC Festive Tatting. I used size 20 Lizbeth, color #670 and #685.
I've probably thrown away 5 or 6 snowflakes in the past couple of weeks. I messed them up so badly that I didn't want to even try to fix them. It's really very discouraging to mess up simple patterns over and over again!
Now, to work on my very soothing Spinning Wheel glass mat... it's halfway done with no mistakes!
I'm a retired elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to seven. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. Now that I'm retired, I know I'll never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
