See how lovely it was supposed to be? SIGH...
My snowflake turned out to be a star since I made the middle rings way too big.
It was supposed to have 6 points, but that's okay. My block tatting is so MESSY. How do I make it look neater? :( This little star was also the victim of my Worst Thread Adding Ever. What an honor! Silly me, I ran out of thread before a ring, and thus had to add thread in the middle of a chain. It went horribly wrong. Poor star.
This, however, is turning out awesome!
I'm attempting a doily after hardly tatting for months, and it's going well. I think it's that this is just a wonderful doily. Really, I can't describe how much I like it. It's so simple and elegant. One of my first doilies was made with this pattern.
Here's a pic:
It was done in size 10 and I was really proud of myself.
So I'm doing this doily again in size 20. Alternating Lizbeth baby pink and ecru (I don't know if those are actually the names). I'm surprised at how tiny it is. I'm on the second to last row. It's looking really nice and neat. I see it possibly going into the county fair this year. Oh and those little threads are already sewn in, but I figured I'd leave a little bit to pull on while blocking it, just in case it came loose while still tatting.
Another project I have going right now is a BIKINIIII! WOO! I've never done any clothing for myself. It was inspired by crocheting blogs. The one I'm doing is pretty simple. There's no pattern or anything. The yarn looks orange almost on here, but it's hot pink. HOT, Barbie pink. My favorite!
Lastly, some scrap clay creations:
