My progress with the large NB doily has been slow too. This is the latest picture of it.
the Trove site, linked here.
I have tatted these medallions before and wrote about it earlier. I decided to tat them again because I did not finish tatting all three. I need to get them done and post the pictures together with the charts before sharing in my blog. I have finished the largest of the three which is this oblong shape shown here, and have started on one of the squares.
Next, regarding my tatting books -
As mentioned in my blog, my books are currently available only in pdfs. I know that some tatters prefer to have properly printed books that they can flip through or take along with them.With this in mind, I have engaged a professional printer to have all my three books be available in hardcopy. The work is in progress and I am trying to have the books ready by the end of the year.
With that done, I think I should start planning for the next one. Hmm .... should there be a theme? I have many designs that are still waiting to be written and diagrammed. Should I just takes these and have a random combination? There is a lot to think about.
It is hard work coming out with a pattern book, not just for tatting but any craft books in general. I do hope that this is appreciated by the crafters out there and proper acknowledgement given whenever any of the patterns is used, and due respect given to the copyrights of the authors.
