Avoiding the heat

Sooooo....I mailed off my apprentice pieces for the TAT program. I really have enjoyed the learning. The use of split rings was a large part of one piece. As a result, I pulled out Georgia Seitz' Cathedral Window Doily Pattern. It is such a wonderful use of split rings and negative space.

However, as you see, I used bulky thread and therefore the negative space is not as pronounced as I hoped. I will definately tat this pattern again using smaller thread. The tatting went quickly and overall I'm happy with the final project.

yeah, yeah I've still got to block it.

On another note, I'm looking forward to tat days and hope to see many of you there. Please introduce and reintroduce yourselves! I will be attending on Friday only...maybe one of these years I'll be able to stay for the full two days.
Have a great day!
