More Tatting


It took three attempts to get this tiny piece done. The first time I was almost done when I found a thread wrapped around the piece and I couldn't fix it. The second one I forgot to join the picots (yes, again). This design is in Tatted Snowflakes by Vida Sunderman (Dover Needlework Series). I did alter the chain by adding another double stitch on each side of the picot.


I love this little heart but all of my previous trys were sad attempts...until last night when I actually did justice to the pattern. This design is in Easy Tatting by Rozella F. Linden (Dover Needlework Series).

Your tatting is beautiful. I have been trying to do some, but then seemed to lose interest, but I will get back to it.
