projectsbyjane). Now I know me well. Many of my in-progress work end up forever in-progress. Have you looked in my tatting container? It's horrible. Tangled thread and so many in-progress motifs. The problem with tatting and also with crochet? All that stupid end threads you have to hide. Ugh. All my in-progress tatting just need the end threads hidden!!!
Well, instead of finishing up all my old in-progress tats, I made a brand new motif - with a black and red Lizbeth #20 thread. A lot of tatting are variations of doilies. You know who doesn't need a doily? Me. They are dust trappers and with so much stuff in my home collecting dust, the last thing I want is one more dust trapper.
So my tatted doily is my new pendant. This tatting is easy to make. You know what's the hard part? Putting in the two split rings. Ugh. Is there an instrument out there to do this insanely difficult task? I had to do it with my eyes closed for fear the rings would fly into my eye.
I made a few small mistakes with this tatted pendant but they were so minor I didn't feel like unpicking and fixing them.
I only have a few necklaces to choose from and I picked this surgical steel chain because it is not too thick for the delicate pendant.
Alright, back to more tatting. (I've got tatting fever) and I promise to stay away from my open balcony!
