My Interlocking Rings, need work!


I decided to make Jane McLellan's  "Under The African Sky" doily and need to practice my connecting rings, I even broke a thread.
Even my little dog was surprised, All I needed to do was mark with a little safety pin the last one I made, but I was so excited that they were coming along fine, like a crazy person I just kept going.
Tomorrow is another day.

I was sent this splendid picture by Ninetta called "Unripened Strawberry" she mentioned this technique might also make a good cacti,  I think she is on to something :)
She has a wonderful blog and patterns too, found here!

    1. She is hard to photograph she is mostly black but she is the sweetest and lovey dog she lays on my lap and I spend lots of time pulling the hairs out of my tatting!

    1. Well thank you, I find this very fiddly and there is only other pattern I got long ago and never completed it cause the rings didn't look that great, but after this there will be no stopping me!

    1. I know, I just thought it was the one in the middle and then I see that I will be really good at this when done with doily. I may rename this for her and call it interlocking ring practice ha ha ha!

    1. I have herd some people say that it works better with needle tatting.

  8. It is not easy to live under an African sky. It is not what the travel agencies show. Live is hard out there. Rightfully so, tatting it should also be hard.

  12. Tatting on a biscotti! Great idea. I have cross stitched a few, but never thought of sewing on a tatted motif. Fantastic.
