And just so you know I haven't been idle here is a picture of my design for the Design Tat class. I made several attempts before I finished this one and I still have an error. I was going to do six picots on the outer rings but as you can see I forgot what I was doing and only manage to get them on the first ring. So it will be off to make anther model for this one.
I have put aside the needle tatting as it has totally frustrated me. I don't know that I will ever conquer it. I will just have to be satisfied with the shuttle.
