This week, in the spirit of trying new things, I also signed up for my first ever class from Craftsy. I have have completed only four of the lessons on shuttle tatting, I always wanted to learn, tried to pick it up on my own, which didn’t happen, and couldn’t find anyone to teach me. So here was the next best thing.
I got through the first few lessons and here is some of what I did. The first piece is actually missing. It was a jumble of knots, so I cut it off and started over. I saw the vacuum cleaner gobble it up the other day. The top piece there is what I did during the class to follow along. It was not too bad until I got that weird knot in it. Once again, I cut it off. The bottom piece is just a practice piece only. I just practiced doing double stitches and picots. I tried to keep them all pretty even. That was the entire purpose of my practice. I think it turned out pretty well. Anyway, I’m trying new things, maybe I’ll get the hang of it by Christmas
I plan to share some of my other pieces as I finish them.
