Let's see, it's been a week since my last update and so far I've made 4 variegated bookmarks. They've even got little tassels! 'Too Cute!' my mom says. Two in purple, one in falls colors and one in the 'Caribbean' blues and purples. Currently, I'm working with the spring colors of my last doily. It's looking good so far. But frustrating because I wound my shuttles to full so they don't click. So whenever I let a shuttle hang loose, it unwinds two feet of thread! Yes, my friends I'm OBSESSED with the continuous tread method - I hate hiding ends. : ) But hey, what'cha gonna do?
Also started an antique, red doily. Golly those guys are fun....the instructions are so vague you have to rewrite the entire pattern! Mental tatting exercises. The first part is really cool. The outer part of the circles are tatted later and connected with chains. It's kinda hard to explain so be on the lookout for an update.
P.S. I was touring Jane Eborall's pages and have you seen her newest...news I guess you'd call it. For 11 days, one at a time, step by step, she's take you on a wild journey to create a little something special. Here's the link for the Introduction and all I have to say is that I can't wait to give it a try! http://www.janeeborall.freeservers.com/TIASintro.pdf
