The Tatting Forums, and I've been feeling the end of April closing in quickly! This is Motif #7 from DMC Tatting for Today. The thread is size 20 Lizbeth, color #662.
I'd be willing to bet that the casual observer would never notice that I missed a join, which I didn't discover until I had finished hiding my ends. Rather than scrap the whole piece, I took a piece of thread, joined the two picots, and sewed the ends in. I'm sure there's someone out there in Tat-land who can find where I did this, but my solution was good enough for me!
And now, back to my hanky edging!
What a lovely color for a snowflake! It's very nice design.ReplyDelete
Looks great to me! And at least it's not like the snowflakes we had here the other day(in the middle of April). :)ReplyDelete
Aaaaaaaaggggghhhhh - more snow!ReplyDelete
Yours is so much prettier than the white stuff that we keep getting. Fortunately, it melts fast in April :)
I would never know where you missed a join - I'm glad I'm not the only one . . .
Oh yes, the little sew-it-in-after- the-fact trick! I know it well!ReplyDelete
Great blue! Nice pattern.
Fox : )
wow! you hid it well --- and your snowflake is very beautiful.ReplyDelete
I was tatting until 3am and managed three small snowflakes.
Looks good from here! I've used that trick myself "a few" times. ;)ReplyDelete
Your snowflake is very pretty! I love the color you used!ReplyDelete
Maybe if I held it under magnification. :-) It looks perfect!ReplyDelete
Nice job, Diane! I'm forever sewing picots together like that because of missed joins. It's not even visible. Love that blue, too!ReplyDelete
How's the weather there? We still can't get out of the low 40s and snow over here. Yeah, I said snow. Two inches of the white stuff this past Monday! Grrrr...come on, Spring!
Lovely in blue, Diane! I think probably every tatter has used that 'trick'. I know I have,...many times.ReplyDelete
well i am pretty sure that is the way the women in the old days use to do it...so look at it as replicating the past...or actual reenactment...lolReplyDelete
Again can't keep up with you! Your handerchief is just beautiful - perfect matching colors and lovely pattern.ReplyDelete
And this snowflake is very attractive. Looks just fine to me! I really like that pattern and the color.
Lovely!! I want to make one too!!ReplyDelete
Lovely! I can't find the mistake, I think you are bragging a bit about your ends-hiding ability ;-) Seriously, the solutions is good enough for me!ReplyDelete
Looks perfect to me!ReplyDelete
This snowflake is beautiful and very appropriate for our cold and rainy weather we are still having. Happy Easter to you...ReplyDelete
I sure cannot see anything other than perfect!ReplyDelete
I somehow missed this post and just know saw it. How careless of me. :-PReplyDelete
The snowflake looks great to me! And I love the color - a very lovely shade oh blue. :-)
Happy Easter, by the way. ;-)
