blogger in town !
Remember the 'new project' I mentioned in a recent post ? Well, this is it :-D
Please join me in welcoming a tatter, designer, experimenter, and much more ....
Heeeeeere's .... drumroll please ...
the head and hand behind
She's been around for a while. I first noticed her lovely tatted rakhis (bracelets, kind of) on InTatters. Then we followed each other on Pinterest. She makes a rare appearance on Craftree. Our correspondence never really took off, till a couple of weeks back.
We are losing many of our bloggers to Facebook. Here's a tatter who comes from Facebook :-) She has shared some beautiful tatting and applications there, and let's hope she will soon share them all on her blog.
One example is her Dot Picot Motif that I had the privilege to tat. It is not as lovely as her original, and even has an extra picot on one of the chains, so I'll fall back on a foggy flu-ridden head and slow hands (not an excuse, incidentally) ;-P
What is a dot picot, you ask ? Let's head over to her blog where she shares the entire pattern in her first post, with a promise of many more to come :-)
I love the decorative density of the dot picots - it provides interest, highlight, and texture. They got better, more manageable, as I tatted.
TIP : When closing the dot picot ring, I found that the core thread should be pulled straight for smooth closure in one fluid movement, unlike when closing regular rings.
Also, use a smooth, tightly spun tatting thread. Perle cotton may resist closure.
She is still a bit diffident. So let's all welcome her to our warm supportive blogging TatLand :-) Do stop by her blog and say hello
happy tatting always :-)
Did this post read like an ad or promo ? It kinda is ; but friendly, not materially ;-P Probably a fallback of the notification flashing on my blogger dashboard, informing me that my acvount now qualifies for an AdSense fast-tracking with an amount thrown in (it could buy a dizen balls of Anchor Mercer Every Month ! ) ;-D Ain't gonna happen !
