I'm working on another Cleric's Stole. This one is going to be in Icy Blue rough silk. I've given the recipient the choice of colors. She chose the lighter blue silk with black tatted motifs and edging. So, here's the combination to this point.
I'm done with the edging and one of the motifs. I will tat a couple crosses and a couple triangles to represent the idea of the Christian Trinity. Of course, as usual, I have to hide the ends.
Now, here's the frustrating piece...as if I would work on a project and not find a challenge. I figured the amount of thread to load on the two shuttles for the second square motif.....problem was, I forgot to include the idea of a little extra to stay on the bobbin....AAaaarrrrggghhhh!! !
The little bit of thread you see would probably been enough to complete the motif.... just not enough to anchor as I tatted.
The squares tat up quick enough to just start over. I'll keep ya'll posted on the project.
On another note, I'm missing my mom today. She's in Florida and I'm in North Carolina. I wasn't able to get there this year and she couldn't come this way. I'd rather share this day with her. But we both know we care for and love each other.
To all the mothers, a Giant Happy Mother's Day!
