I will NOT be beaten!!


Off on another Dora adventure!! I've now decided to return to the one I tried (and failed with) earlier - this is the post where I was mumbling on about picot gauges!!!

This time I'm tatting it 'naked' without one of those wretched objects!!! Bet that made you sit up and notice when I said naked.  If I was tatting without clothes on it would frighten the local residents!!!  Result (so far) is faster tatting and a pretty neat motif. 

We'll see what happens over the next few days/weeks!!! I'm going to try and stay focussed on this without wandering off to other things. Well, that's the aim but the best laid plans of mice, men and, of course BC3 etc!!!!

  1. I envy your ability to tat without a picot gauge. For several years I was frustrated by my inability to create picots that were anywhere near the same size. Once I learned how to use a picot gauge, I had much less trouble. I guess we all have our way of doing things!

  2. Those picots certainly look even.

  3. That is looking pretty!! I like the airy/lacy look of the long picots

  4. You're amazing Jane! LOVE how you're giving it another try.... Like you, I don't use gauges, and your picots look great! Looking forward to seeing the end product. :-)
