Now this you've simply GOT to see. 

Do you remember Juliana and the angst I went through translating and re-writing the unknown nun's pattern? Well Tim test tatted it for me and he found a few mistakes and we put them right. I never in a month of Sundays thought anybody else would make it let alone do such an amazing job.

This is from Louise who is one of Judith Connor's Queensland tatters. She's taken part in the Tat It And See games in the past. 

She made it in Lizbeth number 40 and it measures 54cm. I must admit it looks 1,000% (if there is such a thing) better made in the finer thread although it must've driven her crazy. I'm tempted to tackle it again - or should I take another look at the little books and try another of the designs?

Thank you SO much for showing me, Louise. It's so good to know that my time wasn't just spent on my own selfishness in wanting to make it and that Tim's time wasn't wasted in testing it too.

Wow, it's really impressive. Good to know that use has been made of your and Tim's work. Yes, tackle another one, you can see that others will follow suit!

Louise does amazing work, this is really lovely. I'm only sorry that we can't see it in the " thread", because , of course, our tatting meetings are suspended, and all the libraries are closed..

Beautifully executed, Louise. QTs have something special to see in the future.

Thanks again to Jane and Tim for trialing the pattern.

Louise said...

Thanks for your lovely comments. I'll bring it to QT on the other side of this.
