The first day we worked with single shuttle split rings and that afternoon we tatted this little beauty:
Tatted in size 80 "Majestic".
I just LOVE Camelia's pineapple designs. They are a joy to tat!
My new friend Karla taught me Lucet (I know, I know, it isn't tatting...but it IS something I have wanted to learn for awhile). Karla made a wonderful video on YouTube where you can learn it too.
I still need to perfect my tension. Currently I am working on a lucet cord in silk. I already have lots of ideas for using lucet cord with tatting.
The second day we received a delightful apron pattern from Irene Morgan. Unfortunately I have not yet finished tatting it because I was a "knotty" girl who was working on another project during this time.
I am happy to say that that "other" project was the last project I needed to finish for my Master's T.A.T. program. I cannot tell you how wonderful it felt to turn in the T.A.T.
I have been working on the program for nearly 3 years. If all goes well, I will have my Master's tatting certificate soon. Double WHOO HOO!!!
...and lastly I had the privilege of teaching a lesson on folded rings to my new buddies. It is a lesson which I plan to share here when I get a few minutes to do so.....Hmmmm....hopefully by the end of the year??? LOL
