I spent hours watching YouTube videos yesterday, and I fell in love with "Olivia" by mai mai kaito. However, I made a big mistake, and her beautiful square motif became a snowflake. I didn't notice my mistake until I was almost finished with the second repeat.
I thought about snipping my thread and starting over, but then I decided to keep going to see what would happen. I found that it's incredibly difficult to remember how a mistake has been made so that it can be repeated five times!
I hope to find time this week to tat this beautiful motif correctly!
I wanted to try another pattern for bookmarks, so I headed back to Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior. This pattern is Crooked Mile. I've started tatting this pattern many times, never successfully. This time I took a picture with my iPad and used the markup function to keep track of my place in the pattern. It worked like a charm!
