I haven't gotten much tatting done lately. It also seems that what has gotten done has had mistakes.
Take Jane's TIAS 2016.
I was doing great until Day 6. It wasn't that it was that difficult but I caught a thread where it shouldn't aught to be and didn't notice it until I was farther along.
Jane Eborall's TIAS 2016 Day 6
And this is where I still am. The way things have been going lately with my tatting I'm afraid to take it out due to the chance of making it worse.
But I am looking forward to finishing it. Jane already has Day 8 out; I have a bit of catching up to do.
The doily I currently have in the round robin I'm a part of on Craftree is sitting by my chair waiting on me to finish it. I have it figured out - in my thread - but haven't yet attempted it in the doily colors yet. I really don't want to mess it up.
I hope I get out of my funk soon.
On a bright note, I found my snowman
that came off in the wash
He looked pretty pathetic.
But amazingly his scarf, hat and flower are still attached. I used craft glue to put them on and I really thought I'd find the tatting but not everything still together. A little blocking and he'll be as good as new.
I'm hoping a little patience and a little more care will soon get me back to as good as new, or least back to normal!
