Hi All, On Here-Be-tatters we have decided to participate in the
Olympics of tatting.
There are several events that include:
Ornaments All Around
800 Meter Dash
Tally Ho Clunies
Technical Figure Skating
And An open event for any other tatting plans
I have entered the Tally-Ho Cluny event.
to the right is my first attempt at a motif that includes clunies. There was a Vikings football game on the tv tonight, so had much tatting time while watching the game.
I definately need work on getting my clunies even, but tonights effort was just to get comfortable with the loom weave on my hand and the I think that I have gotten much more comfortable with clunies on the whole.
While my clunies need more practice to get even, in my hast to get this done and posted, can you find the mistake in the outer rings? I will be working this motif a couple more times as it is easy and yet gives a good number of clunies for practice. I didn't hide the ends, I turned them into a hanger so I can use it as an ornament.
this motif is from Georgia Seitz's website and it was designed by Saundra Hameed for the 2001 classes. http://www.georgiaseitz.com/classes2001/fall2001/hameedcluny.html
I felt that I was under a handicap tonight, there is a dead mouse in my house. And in between tatting I spent a good chunk of time tearing most of my bedroom apart, moveing dressers and other furniture trying to find the stinky thing. Turns out it is in the cold air return duct. DH took the cover off but there is no way to reach it. Yuck! I may sleep on the couch in the living room tonight.
I am also a bit stressed, grandchild #7 is due in about 5 weeks, but DD started contractions on wednesday again off and on until yesterday when the docs got it stopped. This is the second time, but at least she is much closer this time. She is now on bed rest, so if DH doesn't need me for combining wheat this weekend, after the funeral for a friends mother tomorrow, I will be heading 90 miles to watch my grandson while DD stays in bed.
This is motif #10 for the 25 motif challenge.
