Check it out....
Here is the beginning of a long...long...long relationship. I agree with you Erin on the pattern for the filet panel.
Here is the beginning...
I had a difficult time 'turning the corner', took a couple tries and had to pick a few doubles....but I think I'm finally on my way. Being left handed, it seemed to take a little more thinking to visualize the turn. I left the beginning 'as is' and am not going to worry about the messy pieces.
Here it is with the original piece. I've added a bit of width to the panel and am using a slightly larger thread. Very happy with the outcome to this point.
On another note...
The shuttles (clovers) were given to me by Hegla at Tat days. I've been a hold out using the metal boye shuttles and so these were a gift in an attempt to convert me to post shuttles. Once in a while I use a post shuttle if there aren't too many joins. But, so far, I like these and am happy with the joins using my tiny crochet hook.
Welcome to my little world. I began this blog for the sole purpose of down loading and uploading photos....however, after entering the world of tatting and connecting with other tatters I began to enjoy the interconnectivity of the community.
I am a left handed tatter who began on a whim and have not put it down. From time to time I'll upload a few pictures and ramble on about my life. I hope you'll join me in my tangential thought process
