Lately I encountered quite a few setbacks in tatting. While tatting the 'Rainbow Heart', the thread suddenly tore off. I was shocked it happened. And the same thing occurred in the second heart I tatted from scratch. Sigh... Did I tug at the thread too hard?
No, I didn't give up. I managed to tat up 2 Rainbow Hearts. The pattern is from the 'Rainbow Heart Bookmark' designed by Betsy Evans. I used Coron #12.
The second sheep (the one on the left in the picture) had enough thread. I only had to sew in the ends. Before I knew it, I broke another part of a thread in the front leg and ... SAD.
I did tat a pretty sheep at last. Oops, I forgot to take a picture of it before I sent it off to a friend. Why an orange sheep? WELL, the sheep fell into my orange juice.
