First attempt at block tatting
This was today's lesson for the online tatting class. I finished it before class so that I could better follow along in class. Unfortunately my access to the class has been denied so I could not attend today. Furthermore, I never did receive any response to my emails for assistance. So perhaps, I will try again this evening.
This is my first attempt at block tatting and I have ever so many questions about this pattern. Some things were confusing and I don't know if I did them correctly.
It is an absolutely gorgeous pattern by Sue Hanson called "Block Tatted Heart".
I can definately use a little more practice too.
I was happy to see that Jon also posted about this pattern.
I will be taking a block tatting class at "Shuttlebirds" this year...so hopefully I can get my questions answered and become proficient with this tatting method soon.
Also, ETatters has a new tatting site with a different format. I like it much better than the old one. It is kind of run "blogstyle". I haven't had much time to sit down, explore and get comfortable with the site yet. But it seems very promising.
