No More Pointy Wings

Angel with modified wings

I did manage to modify Monica Hahn’s beautiful angel pattern with wings more to my liking — although the next time I do them I might make them a bit shorter.

I’m still a fairly new tatter and had a lot of problems understanding the skirt part of the directions.  Anyone who has tatted this angel will see a couple of mistakes.

Gina (The Tatting Goddess) did a beautiful beaded version in blue.  Click here and scroll down to the Sunday, April 26 post to see it.

Ron and I are both having serious camping withdrawals.  We should have the money together to look for another camper in October.  Hope we survive the wait.  🙂

My tatting is improving

Second try at this bookmark pattern

This is my second try working this pattern. It's a big improvement over the first.

Haven’t heard from the RV shop yet.  I hope they get the camper done soon.  I left some of my jeans packed in it and I need them!

In the meantime, I’ve been tatting, and my work is getting better.  I do tat too tightly, but will continue to work on that.

Here’s my latest… and I am so proud of it!  Again, it’s one of Jon’s beautiful free patterns.

I decided to use my first flawed version as a motif on a little girl’s tote bag.  It looks great as a motif, and the mistakes aren’t so glaring when used this way.
