Must try Harder!!!!!

 

Hi guys,

Well I have been working so hard this afternoon with the new slippers and my shuttle tatting homework……which is going wrong….

Tina give me a little project to do…which was a bookmark by Carol Lepard. The first go is above and I did not do enough double stitches on the last ring and I closed it before I realized what I had done……..I did try to undo the ring but it would not work………..so I thought I would just start again………I have been working on the second attempt and I have just looked at it and I have now forgot one ring in the middle……completely forgot it…….bugger!!!!! The mistake below…..

I have to say that I am more happy with this effort as it does looks tidier than the first…………so in the morning I am at the gym and then I have a few jobs around the house and then I AM going to master this bookmark……..I was in Leeds market this morning and I saw these……

I nearly broke my neck getting these to the cashier on the stall. I have never seen crochet threads this fine on the market……may have to take another visit there later on this month………. They are Lesur Pixie in 20.

So hopefully tomorrow I will have a better tatting day………this is my first Shuttle tatting project I have ever done…………must try harder!!!!!

Luv Jane XX
