|motif #16 - isn't it pretty?|
Then I made another of Elizabeth's little crosses, this time in one of my vintage threads from Aunt Rose-E, size 70. It's great but REALLY tiny. I'm not sure it's a good bookmark size but my daughter snapped it up right away. Note the front side, back side again. I'm still not convinced but it's fun to practice.
Yesterday, my elder daughter (who tats) and I got together with Cindy for Twin Cities Tatters. We had a great time and gave clunies a try. I got the loom and the weaving part down but I think I must be doing something wrong at the end when I pull the threads through. It almost feels like a "flip" happens and then I can't pull the threads from the bottom. (Top ones okay!)
They're not perfect but I'm excited to learn something new. Someday I will be embarrassed that I posted a picture of them but not today. Today they are just fun!
