I need to work on something.
I have been watching Renulek's 2018 Doiley tatted by others and it fascinates me that people use multiple thread colors. I am not a good thread color designer. What was I to do. I had to wait, I needed an idea and I really wanted to use more that one thread color in my doiley. I decided to start Under an African Sky by Jane McLellan. I have had the pattern for awhile but the beginning looked to hard.
I thank Tatting Lace in Grace and Umi & Tsuru for showing me how to do the Interlocking Self Closing Mock Ring. Their Blog instructions were wonderful. This is something I don't know that I would have figured out so quickly without their help. Try #1 and #2 are pictured above. This it try #3 below. It is almost good, one of the rings wasn't put in properly.
Here is my fourth try and not so bad if I may say so myself.
I have added the sky to my sun.
This is a fun pattern to do, now that I am doing it. I shall keep with this until my threads come in and then will finish both of them. I am paying more attention now.
Thank you for visiting and enjoy tatting. May you pay better attention than I.
