A wonderful dragon.

I was honoured to be asked to test tat this pattern by Martha Ess.  
When I test tat I really, really concentrate on the pattern so that I can give it the best feedback I can.
Well, I found two VERY, VERY, VERY tiny typos which just proves to me what a fantastic designer Martha is.  This is an easy pattern but it also keeps the tatter interested the whole way through.  No cuts and ties except for the wing or changing colours which makes it even more fun (the changing colours, I mean)!!!

That reminds me - must do a technique page on a way I've found of adding in new thread or changing colours.  Keep nagging me for that!!!!  It's probably not new but it's one I use now all the time.

I know that Martha blogged her dragon yesterday so I thought I'd show you mine too.  Like so many of the comments on her blog said - I'm dying to see the book finished too!!!!

He's sweet - but does he have heartburn?

Jeanie said...

Wow ! Love the colors ... beautiful !

Michelle said...

Let the nagging begin! I'd love to see your method, adding thread is one of my least favorite things to do!

Tour dragon is quite handsome!

Maureen's comment made me chuckle...love your fiery-bright dragon.

Wonderful!! Can dragons be 'cute'? lol

Fox said...

Heartburn! That woman makes me laugh!

Your colours sing, Jane; the dragon looks amazing.

I too would like to see your add- in method, as mine is cumbersome.

This is what I love about tatting - its versatility! From delicate, tiny butterflies to big dragons. And talented tatters who can come up with these ideas! Wonderful design by Martha, and your colors are perfect!

Thanks for all the comments and I hope Martha's watching too!!! I really can't wait for the book to be finished.
Maureen - if he gets heartburn he'll have to find a bucket of water to drink, I suppose!!! Silly moooo - so funny.
