Jan Stawasz Moje Robotki 8/2007 Huge Doily tat-along Row 6

The Big D is now 15" across but such a good thing that I have finished those motifs.  One came apart as I showed my sister how I hid ends.  My sister who always gives good advice said, "Good thing it happened now and you can correct it." She is always right. I corrected the motif and then went on to get row VI out of the way. 

Not quite halfway through but other projects in the works to distract me from this. I have noticed that the feel of rightside wrongside tatting is similar to crochet in that you can feel the difference between the smoothness of the work from one side to the other.  I don't know how else to explain this. Perhaps other crafters have had the same experience.

Thanks Ruth

Occasionally I take a look at kijiji to see what has been posted lately and to my surprise there were a few items of interest.

I met a lovely lady Ruth and purchased the above books and shuttle's for a small sum.  Our transaction took place in front of this gorgeous view. Those are the Rocky Mountains on the right horizon. She is one lucky lady to wake up to this.

I also purchased these crotat books all still in the original packaging. Not sure if I really want to learn this yet.
