One of the things I enjoy about the nearly sixty years I've been tatting is that I'm still learning. I have a need to learn all the time - probably because things don't stay in my brain for long as I think it's sprung a leak! Send for a brain plumber - QUICK!
Remember the page I uploaded a few days ago about putting beads onto a thread before you start? Well Carolyn contacted me yesterday and showed/explained to me her way of adding beads. I've tried it and it works well. She said you need to sort of 'train' the needle threader by squidging it so the beads go on a bit easier but that's easy. It's a great idea so it's now on that page.
I truly appreciate all the help everybody gives when compiling techniques as there are so many ways to do things that I could never manage to learn and illustrate them all. Anyway, here's the link.
