Late night, after wine...

This is probably an unwise moment to decide to update...
And so let me start with this. My daughter thinks it looks like a relic from the 70s, when we all had rainbow fabrics everywhere, *sigh* she's right. So I will go no further with this one, design from "Be-stitched". Also she warns us that the SLT doesn't work so well, and I am inclined to agree. This is a pretty crap piece of tatting, and my only excuse is that I was trapped in a car, traversing the Czech Republic. :(
So, I decided to draw on my rather faulty memory and do ... this. It is a Mary Konior design, and I love it, although just right now I can not remember the name. :( 
I do need to do another square to finish it, but due to rather faulty progress  and many distractionsI am not holding my breath!
What is this? Yet another WIP, this is from the Tina Frauberger book from the Georgia Seitz pages. Yes I made a mistake, but WTH, I pretty much never unpick, I choose to live with my mistakes...or else I abandon the whole boiling lot... BTW this is part of a six motif ring...hmm just another five to go.

The rainbow doily should become a bed for a unicorn since they live in rainbows. The Mary Konnior piece is Masquerade. I've been eyeing that pattern for awhile. Lovely pieces.

When contrasted with the black, the rainbow thread really stands out. Not to argue with your daughter, but I like it.
Thanks for posting.
