Here is what I did over the Labor Day weekend.
I would have posted this last night, but we had a thunder and lightning storm and the computer stays off then. We got 2" of badly needed rain out of the storm, so no complaints.
I wrote about the problems that I had with the joins in the posts below.
I have finished the first of 2. This one has purple rings and green chains. I have started the one with green rings and purple chains.
The green thread is Flora size 20 and the purple is Manuela size 20. All together I figure about 33 yards of thread. the finished size is 5.5"
Once I gave up on the joining, it went rather smoothly as long as I paid attention to the number of picots needed in the chains. I retro-tatted more rings and chains on this darn thing. I do not cut out mistakes, I un-stitch them. I almost never have problems opening a ring, so retro-tatting is just time consuming.
I hear that there will be a new TIAS coming soon. Don't know what a TIAS is? Tat It And See. Someone, in this case, Ladyshuttlemaker, develops a pattern and gives out a little bit each day until you are finished. That way you don't know what it is until you are finished. Like a puzzle with no picture to follow.
I believe that I mentioned below that I "went shopping". I bought some clear glass ornaments to tatt covers for to use as Christmas presents. I did some bead shopping as well.
