Tatting for December 31, 2010

Original round three

Remember how I suggested that I might remove and retat round three on this doily?

New round three


Clipping off completed tatting is a character-developing experience, but I hope you’ll agree that the results are worth it. I added two double stitches to each chain, thus reducing the stretched look of the previous version.

In other tatting news, I’ve completed round two on the pair of cousin doilies, and round three on one of them. They’re ruffled doilies, so scanning after round two is not going to work, and I will be forced to try to take a photo of my progress. Taking a photo of my tatting kind of freaks me out. Lighting and all that.

I also tatted this heart. Just for fun.

    Love the heart. Love the friend doilies, and don’t freak out about taking a picture. Here’s my advice to make it simple:

    -Get a piece of dark, solid fabric–scrap, towel, blanket, whatever.
    -Drape it over something. A chair or some props.
    -Do this near a window.
    -Use daylight for the lighting. Better than any other type of lighting. (If weather permits, so it outside. That assumes everything isn’t snow-covered, but I do it a lot when the wind isn’t blowing and there is no snow.)

    I’ll give that a try. My camera isn’t the greatest, but I’ll have to make it work.
