I don't know what I see....

I'm becoming obsessed with this object. My first try was lying nice and flat.  My second isn't doing so good. My third wasn't doing well either so I'm back to working on my second. Pics to follow...

First try

Second try


  1. Hi Helen,

    I can relate to some of what you are going through. While anxiously waiting for Day Three instructions to be posted I tatted a second piece thinking it would be better than the first one but it wasn't. To get my centers to lay flat I gently moved each picot and the ds on each chain until things evened out. It took a little doing and they aren't perfect but that's okay.

    This project is teaching me so much about myself. At first, I was impatient but now, I am relaxed and having fun. Upon completion of this project, I am rewarding myself with two new Sew Mate shuttles because I have not tatted with them.

    Your tatting is very nice and I like your thread colors. :o)

  2. Thanks for the encouraging words. I figure I'll try some creative blocking with a steam iron when its finished if I don't give in and try it a fourth time, lol.

  3. lol You are welcome! After I tatted the second one, I stopped myself from tatting a third one by working on other projects. Now that I think of it, that flower piece alone is a beautiful motif that would look nice in other things. Think it's time for me to stop dreaming and move on. Happy Tatting!! :o)


Thank you for your wonderful comments!
