The other day I wanted to tat but had no thought about exactly what except something simple that didn’t take a lot of thinking. I had Lizbeth #670 Victorian Red size 20 thread in my bag so wound a shuttle and started tatting.
It started out as a simple edging then I thought to turn a corner.
At one point I thought of making this a square or rectangle and then got the bright idea to do a triangle. That worked out pretty well but it needed something in the center. If I had known what I was doing it would have been much easier to start with the center instead of filling it in last.
Several ideas presented themselves but this is what came out of it. The circle of rings was easy but it didn’t quite fill in enough, so I tried stitching it in. I like the corners but I’m not sure I like the way the bare thread goes around the center. Overall I like how this turned out.
I ended up having to do a lot more thinking than I planned to for this. It’s finished, now what? Maybe join several together? It could make an interesting doily, couldn’t it?
I’m finishing up several projects, and have been for a week or so. They really are almost done, just need a few little things completed and I could share them. Now, if I can just stay with them long enough to finish them.
