Yes, it looks like a jumbled mess, but my sister says I have organized chaos. :)
I am still working on the triangle cross. The first attempt got delayed due to a broken thread (over on the right side of the center group near the ball thread, and then I realized that I needed 6 triangles to have it correct and I only had 5 so I started over). This ball of thread is the worst I have ever had. I have had many breaks with the thread and it is so coarse that it irritates my hands, but I figure what better way to experiment than to use a thread that won't stand up for a good project(although, it drives me crazy!!!).
On the top left of the triangle cross pattern you will see what I have accomplished so far.
Oh, if you look at the bottom of the triangle cross pattern you will see
2 other thoughts in progress. Now, if I could just figure a way to tat this without all the ends!
On the left hand side is one of Elaine P. Gan's crosses named Hope from her new book here:
I think it will make a great cross for men and I have it tatted(incorrectly somehow- in this picture on the left) in Yarnplayer's Adventurer HDT size 40. I was going to use size 20, but she was out so I went with my preferred size. Seems a bit small, but it will just have to work.
And turning to the right side of the picture, I made a tiny bit more progress on Robin Perfetti's cross-link here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B8R5ZNar0YDdV0t4N21JMmhHaEU/edit
Although, in this cross I had another frustration.....part of the thread snapped.
It's still connected, but it got left alone due to frustration from the triangle cross thread breaking several times, and then this snap.
I have several crosses I need to tat for people, 4 more dangles requested, a suncatcher, and to finish my 2014 Spring doily yet. I never seem to have the problem I have seen so many tatters have- not knowing what to tat next. My problem is-when am I going to get time to tat what I want. :)
Happy tatting everyone!!! :)
