So busy at the moment! Not enough time to tat!
But still wanted to make quick post
as I don't like to leave my blog "unattended" for too long...
I was a lucky recipient of Jess's first try at a Sorrel colour way - I think the batch that ended up in the shop is quite a bit darker than this (and more green? and more purple?). So just a quick leaf I tatted tonight. The leaf is the one from Nancy Tracy's Tatted Cherries which I did a short while ago. Not my best tatting... but I mostly wanted to see how the thread tatted up. There's so many things to do at this time of year... I'm sure you all feel the same! I'm starting to look forward to "after Christmas" when we can all relax... and tat! I have many other beautiful HDTs I've not had time to wind and try, so I'm looking forward to those too.
The colours make me think of rhubarb...
I'm also still working on a pattern for this.
I'm thinking of putting both versions on the same pattern.
Anyone for a test-tat, maybe? I know everyone's busy (it's the wrong time of year to ask this) so please only offer if you think you have time and can tat it quite quickly... I know, I'm sorry, I'm a hard taskmaster!
I hope to have the pattern ready tomorrow. I would particularly like to know if the photos I took to explain the one-stitch SCMR are good enough.
I said to Miranda in the last post that I'd show you what it looked like without the long picots pinned into a pointy shape so that's the picture above. I like it like that too, in its "natural state".
