These are examples of tatting that has gone wrong, and it is so demoralising. I have a lovely new DavidReedSmith shuttle, some beautiful new threads from my friend Frances, but I just keep producing flawed work.
By the way I'd love to join Sherry's tatting ring, but that won't work either!
Surely this phase will pass, and I will be able to enjoy myself again...I certainly hope so.
This pink motif was from Tatting Patterns and Design, and I have made exactly the same mistake as E-Koon but several rows earlier!
Oh, by the way none of the patterns are mine, (with the possible exception of the "poppy") but I can't remember where I got them today, or I would only get it wrong, if I did try to remember!
