Change of pace

No, I haven't given up tatting Ice Drops!

In fact, I started off my day by tatting an Ice Drop, another one for Denise's tree.

We had thunderstorms this morning, and I love thunderstorms! I read for a while, and then I decided to do some weaving.

I found this band very difficult to weave. It may have been because I went for a fancy border. I think I should have kept it simple. The left side is the front, and the right side is the back.

I really need to work on consistency. The X patterns on the top part of this picture is much looser and longer than the ones on the bottom. The bottom was the end of the band where I finally developed a rhythm for this pattern. I think I may try this one again using only two colors.

I sure am learning a lot about weaving!


  1. From here the band looks perfect.The design intricacies are evident, as is your learning progress :-)
    I love this series of Ice Drops (white/red/gold)!

  2. That's another great Ice Drop!! :)
    Love the new band!!!! :)

  3. I see the differences in tension now you point them out. Good idea to do another now you have it down pat. The edges look very neat.

  4. I could just copy/paste Jane's comment; I only saw the difference in Xs after you mentioned it. Beautiful band - including the borders ;)
    Thunderstorms here too, hence a merciful 83F right now :D

  5. Lovely band, only noticed the difference in the Xs
    Another lovely ice drop,
    We has thunderstorms on Tuesday now our weather is looking like February with strong gale force winds and rain, only its July.


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
