Good afternoon, dear readers!
We had a busy weekend dealing with the garden and putting up our harvest. I did manage to get some tatting time in and have a little surprise for you- we are going to have a tat-along on the blog this week. Here is the beginning of the "Plain Jane Project":
Using a size 7 tatting needle and a ball of size 8 Valdani Pearl Cotton in M49 "Subtle Elegance", tat 6 ICRs with the following counts:
ICR 11 followed by 5 graduated picots (sm, med, lg, med, sm) 11 CL
ICR 13 very small - 13 CL
Tat 3 of each, alternating for a total of 6 ICRs. Tie, hide ends & cut.
(For a tutorial on needle tatting ICRs, click here.)
The next step will be featured on tomorrow's post.
What did you do this weekend? Any interesting projects being tatted out there? I'm busy working on OOAK pieces for my upcoming Olde West Collection and adding to the Romance of the Piney Woods Collection. I'll have to hit the estate sales and auctions soon as I'm running low on antique cameos & intaglios.
Rosie Fey is ready for an afternoon romp. Have a great day & until tomorrow~
