I'm trying to think of other ways to use it now.
This photo was taken over a week ago and nothing has changed since then.
My headache is coming up to 5 weeks old now and I took a weeks holiday from the tatting in the hopes that it would help settle my aching head - no such luck.
Knowing that it is going to take longer and longer to go around each row of this beautiful project, I decided a few days ago that I needed to do something small that I could finish.
|from Priscilla book 2|
I have almost finished two pansys (pansies?).
The first one I followed the instructions, as you do, did the centre ring and then made the petals off the ring.
I nearly screamed many times - the petals insisted on twisting around so that I couldn't tell how they were joined and which direction I was going.
The second one I made each petal separately then joined them together with the centre ring.
OK, so I haven't actually joined them at the time of writing this, but I am hoping that when I get home from Saturday brunch (where I am at the moment) that I will do the joining ring.
|the latest delivery - YAY|
OOPS! I accidently hit the publish button. Sorry.
My most recent delivery from OS: A metal shuttle with spare bobbins; Coil-less safety pins in gold and silver; and patterns for crocheted cobweb shawls.
This was my last purchase before the $AU went below parity with $US - just means I have to pay more now to buy in $US.
The crochet instructions say to use mohair weight thread. I don't get on well with most woolen threads so I will be using a soft 4ply cotton that I have (a lot of) at home for my first attempt.
Going now to put the second pansy together.
Oh, I nearly forgot, there is another row to go on the outside of the petals - a light cream if I can find one.
These will count as #2 and #3 in my 25 motif challenge.
