I didn't realize that it had been so long since I posted any tatting.
I have been tatting, but didn't want to post some things before they had been received by the person I was giving it too.
So, while I don't have pictures of all that I have done, here is some of my tatting.
|I test tatted Fox's Abigail motif, she did a great job on the designing. this is unblocked, and it lays very nicely. she also did a very nice job on her written pattern. there were only a couple minor spots where a join symbol was missing. I believe that she has a diagram available for this now.|
unfortunately, I have lost my notes, so am not sure of the patterns, the angel is one of Martha Ess'.
Here is the back of this reticule.
I have the joining round and the beading round at the top. and I think I am going to use my Lucet to make the drawstring. I am finally seeing the end of the tunnel with this, it has taken me much longer then I thought it would.
The pattern is from Old Time Crochet magazine August 1992.
here is the definition of reticule from Dictionary.com
ret·i·cule[ret-i-kyool] Show IPA
a small purse or bag, originally of network but later of silk, rayon, etc.
This is Day 1 & 2 of Jane's TIAS. If you don't know what a TIAS is, it stands for .....
Jane releases only a small part of the pattern every day or so, and doesn't tell us what the final result will look like, you are "tatting blind".
you can join at any time, and catch up as you go or just to see our progress go to the TIAS blog
Here is day3
and Here is Day 4. I have no guesses, I will have to wait and see what the next steps are. I have participated before, and sometimes have been able to figure it out early on, but not yet this time.
Well, it is time to head for church, so will post this now.
