TIAS 2013 Day 2
Here is how it looks after Day 2 of tatting. You learn something new every day! Thank you, Jane!! I did not know you could leave a bare thread, tat a ring, then the split chain. Isn't that cool?
What could it be? What about a pink sailboat, a pink wizard's hat, a pink slice of pizza, a pink cocktail glass, a pink kite, a pink lampshade, a pink bikini bottom, one half of a pink bikini top . . .
I had been practising the split chain with the several pineapple heaven doilies tatted last year, so this was a breeze. I highly recommend the Marie Smith method blogged about by Frivole here.
I have not tried FS/BS tatting yet, maybe someday.
On another note, if you are having problems uploading photos on blogger, try this: When composing the post, switch to html (top left, next to 'compose'), upload your photo, switch back to 'compose' and post as usual. I had the same problem and this seems to work.
