Starting on a new piece
I decided to listen to the advice of a good friend and put aside the large NB doily for a while and start on a new piece of tatting. There are a number of pieces that I have tatted along the years but never got round to doing up the chart or write out the instructions.
The picture above is the first three rows of one of the first doily that I designed, that I am tatting again for the purpose of preparing the chart/instruction. I have often read other tatters commenting that they can see the difference in the tension when comparing their work now to those done much earlier. I can see that in mine, too. Comparing this with the original, I don't think I would be happy with the loose tension of my earlier works.
