***Crying***Destruction time!!

 I had to amputate the inside row so that I
could try again.  I would say back to "square 
one", but it's back to triangle 1.  ;)

Continuing and working on the smaller 
triangle one too. ;)
Have a fabulous tatting day!!! :)

Well, the large triangle has to come to an end....for now.

The inside was going fine, but I was a bit
concerned it might ruffle or bow, and...it 
does.  So, I either have to cut off the outside,
or the inside...but I like both.

Although, if I do it right I could salvage 
the bottom right corner and make it an 
edging for a V-Neck shirt(I don't wear 
V-Necks, so not sure about that)...

So, I set it aside just for a bit(I NEED a completed 
large triangle!!)  ;)
And so I decided to work on the small triangle I 
designed and start with just joining small triangles 
to make a large one.  I am trying to get the colors to 
go well with the tie-dye shirt I want to sew the finished 
triangle to. Some will be as the colors are here, and 
some will be full solid of each color, trying to make 
them simulate the tie-dye(kind of). Here are the first 2

And here they are with the tie-dye shirt(just showing 
the colors):

Have a wonderful day filled with tatting and joy!!! :)

Making bits of progress

 I think after 3 tries this might work well.
So far it's trying to curl a bit, but I think
it's because I am a tight tatter.  ;)

The two balls of Lizbeth Magenta DK. 
at the bottom are in size 10 purchased 
so I can tat 2 of these for my shirt.  This 
is my prototype. ;)

Look at all the wonderful colors I got 
on the Handy Hands buy 4 get 1 free 
last week.  I have restocked some that 
are running low, and added new colors. 
Tons of inspiration just looking at the 
colors!!! :)

Have a terrific weekend and don't forget 
to get some tatting in!! :)

Well, the Large Triangle frame is done.

 Now trying to fill the inside.  I have made 3
attempts already and finally cut it all off after
unpicking the first 2 attempts.  Going to try again.

I might be test tatting again starting next 
week!!  What fun!! :)
Well, off to "start" my day!
Have a great day and get some tatting in!! :)

To work!

 Tatting and designing that is!!  ;)

I have had a project in mind that I keep 
procrastinating on, but another tatter is 
looking for the same thing and is a newer 
tatter so it has gotten me to start finally!!
We are wanting a large(tall) triangle design 
to insert on the sides of our shirts to give 
them more of a "flare"(more room).  We 
want to put them on the sides of our shirts
(which I will show when done).
So, here is the beginning:
First picture is the beginning ideas

Second is a triangle I came up with, but am sure someone else has already designed one just like it.

Third shows my "template" and start,

Forth is a close-up of the start.

At least I am getting tatting in!!! :) Have a super Saturday and a happy tatting!!! :)

I ordered a butterfly shuttle

 On Apr. 1, 2022 I ordered a butterfly shuttle from Etsy.
it says it would be delivered by Apr. 25(yesterday).  They 
got a shipping label around the 16th, yet it hasn't been 
received by the post office yet, and they decided to take 
a break(according to Etsy), so I can't contact them and 
just have to sit and wait and see if I get my shuttle.
So frustrated!!
