Just a quick post here. I figured that since I managed to tat something, I might as well show it instead of waiting till later.
When I first saw the pattern for the motif I am going to show you, I fell in love with it right away.
It's a really cool pattern, and was pretty easy to tat. And no ends to hide! They all end up as part of the fringe on the back. The pattern is by Susan Cuss and can be found here. I used Lizbeth size 20 thread in colour #688 Dark Seagreen. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with him. He wants to go into a coaster. I said he won't fit. He insists he's pregnant. I don't think that's the problem. He retorted back that I shouldn't talk. What I meant was he's too long, but before I could tell him, he ran off with the mermaid, who herself still isn't sure she wants to go in a coaster yet. Anyhow, I plan on tatting another seahorse again soon. In a smaller thread size. So it's shorter. Nothing else!
That's it for now. My order of jump rings isn't ready to be picked up yet, so it'll be next week before I get them. So I will try to get a bunch of tatting done this weekend. And if anyone's interested (and in case I don't post Sunday), I will be in Etsy's Jewelry showcase starting midnight Monday Sept. 13, and running all day until 11:59 PM Monday. I will probably offer free shipping (Canada, US, & reduced International) again, probably Sunday, Monday and maybe Tuesday. Till next time.
