It was very humid today, a perfect day to sit inside and tat! I did go out on the porch for walks throughout the day, but otherwise I was content to stay inside.
I'm working my way through my button ornament patterns. I'm finding that I really like some of them, and others just do nothing for me. Still, I had great fun creating them all last year. This is my December 2 pattern. I'm terrible with names, so naming them by dates kept me from getting bogged down with decision making.
The December 3 pattern is one that I can take or leave. I'm not real thrilled with the open spaces. The shuttle is one of my newest ones from Alexey Romanov.
December 4 is a pattern that just didn't seem right to me, so I decided to tweak it a little.
I changed the stitch count a little on the last round, and I think it has a much cleaner look. So now I have a December 4 variation!
December 5 is one I really like. One advantage of tatting these designs after months of ignoring them is that I have to follow my own directions. I know I had to revise several patterns because of mistakes that others found. It's funny that at the time I just couldn't see the mistakes in the patterns. Thank goodness there were tatters who asked for clarification!
