Learning & mastering another tatting technique called Wrapping a plastic ring with double-stitches. At the initial stage, i had some problems but manage to overcome it. Thanks, Sheila Dutton for sending the cabone rings to me. And for the tutorial, u can go to http://tatsaway.blogspot.com/2007/09/wrapping-plastic-ring-with-double.html. Thanks to Jon, for making the tutorial so easy to understand.
So now both the tatted pieces are in my doter's possession and have to tat another 6 more pieces as she want to make it into a key chain or bookmark, to be given to her teachers for Teacher's Day.
Below is a motif piece. Its a freebie. I have tatted another 3 pieces to make it into a doily. Its a simple pattern and quite fast to complete 1 motif. (but it still takes me a whole day to complete one. hehehe....too many other distractions).
I hope to tat tis motif again but using only white thread and making it into a bigger piece for my coffee table.
Tis is a flower piece called Stargazer Lily. Have tatted 5 pieces, 1 more piece to tat and and join all to get my flower. Its a beautiful piece and I got the pattern from http://www.toptattyhead.blogspot.com/. Such a creative person.
Happy tatting, crocheting, crosstitching and any other hobbies to all my friends.
