As threatened!



I've been telling you from time to time that I'm going to work further on one of the Crazy Mom Tats motifs so here are two that I did while I was testing and re-testing this pattern.  Sheeeesh, just noticed that I squidged the blue one slightly when I put it on the scanner - the lock chain down near the bottom on the right.

I'm really, really fussy about my work and have to be sure that the whole thing is done to the best of my ability. Now my ability is not always awake and working with my three brain cells (aka BC3) so often there are small mistakes. 

I should get this little motif (it's got a whacky sort of name too) up on my site very soon (hopefully over the weekend) although I have become side-tracked by an off shoot of this which will become my Christmas giveaway for all those people that I send a 'round robin' letter to at that time of the year.

  6. The blue & white one is simply spectacular ... in the way you've used the colours, highlighting a very realistic flower pattern ! Adorable & ingenious use of split rings, etc.

  8. What stitch did you use to get the blue and white to show on the same chains? I would love to know how to do this. Is it Pearl tatting ?

  9. Denise Brant - it's a lock chain. Very simple. First half of the ds is made normally with the thread flipped and the second half is wrapped as in the second side of a split ring - unflipped.
