I like the way he uses that curve of chains to get a lot of width in just one round. This is a recurring theme in his patterns.
And can you see that gorgeous pair of pea pod earrings?
Aren't they sweet?
I just received them in the post a couple of days ago.
A lovely gift from a thoughtful friend.
I've been wearing them since.
I recently started scanning my tatting - don't know why I didn't think of it before... especially useful when I complete things in the evening and I struggle to take good photos in artificial light. But as I said, this doily was nearly too big to be scanned, you can see there is a little bit missing from the edges on the scanned image above.
What do you think? Do you scan or take photos of your tatting? Which works best for you? I suppose the advantage of scanning is that it's so easy! You don't have to worry about lighting or background or fuzziness... just place it on the glass, and press the button. The advantage of photography is that you can vary the angle and the composition, add objects for a more interesting photo, take it outside, etc. so obviously, a lot more flexibility with the camera.
Now I must tear myself away from the tatting and go do some jobs!!
