Little bit of crochet

Well I thought I would have a little break from the tatting and work on the hubby's blanket. He picked the colours. I am just doing simple granny squares.

Loads of ends to do at the end.....I do start off doing the ends as I go along but it never lasts....oh dear lol.

Shuttle tatting

Well it's been a long time since my last post, so naughty of me. I have been crafting and reading blogs just not posting myself. This needs to change!

Well my lovely husband bought me a shuttle tatting course off crafty for Christmas so this inspired me to get the shuttles out.

This is my first play in a very long time. I was very happy with this and I thought the next step was to make something. So onto Pinterest I went.

So the search started. I found this beautiful snowflake by Tatting By The Bay.
It's was just a drawing which is new to me. I have only followed written instructions before. I have never tatted with 2 shuttles either........I think I will be doing some swearing with this.
So I got the shuttles ready and started at the wrong place....doh.
I did not give up so I started again and off I went. I got so carried away I forgot to do the first 2 joins but for once I did not throw the shuttles I kept on going trying to remember to do the following joins......yes I forgot the last few joins as well........I thought I had more to do.
So I have finished and I am so impressed with myself it's unbelievable.

I think I only swore a couple of times which is really good for me.
Thanks for visiting me and do leave a comment so I can come and visit you.

Luv Jane xx
