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!

Very nice, Diane!ReplyDelete
Lol, you talk about the soothing Spinning Wheel Glass Mat... I've had nothing but headaches trying to work that!
I messed it up 5 or 6 times in a row, so decided to give it up! I think it's my archenemy (lol j/k)
So glad it works for you! Tat one for me, will ya?!
I like your tatting!!ReplyDelete

Hello! dear DianeReplyDelete
was beautiful, congratulations
Kisses in your heart,
w / affection
Lovely snowflakes and you have no idea how happy I am to read that even you has to start over several times, even on simple patterns. I am not alone in this!!!! But, the result is all that matters and yours is great! You ARE going to display them around Christmas, aren't you?ReplyDelete
Well, thank goodness! Those rough patches are enough to put you off their feed!Don't I know it! But, here you are, right back in the shuttle with these beauties. Very pretty!ReplyDelete
Fox : ))
Very pretty! It feels so good when a pattern finally goes right. Weirded out pieces with lots of fixes necessary are where most of my UFO come from. If you don't look at 'em, there's nothing wrong with 'em. Sometimes running "home" to a favorite pattern is the only way to get your fingers back in trim. It's good to have a favorite!ReplyDelete
These are beautiful and I would definitely say your slump is past. Happy tatting...ReplyDelete
WOW!!! I love the colour combination!! Nice to know you are back on track...it is very frustrating when there is more penelope than double stitch!ReplyDelete
I really must get the pattern for the spinning wheel...my tuit list just keeps getting longer!
