Yes, right now it looks like a blob

Well, I am done with the first 3 rounds.  For some reason, I thought this would take much longer than it has.

is in serious need of blocking!!

Can you tell that some of my long chains on the last round look better than others?
About half way through, I decided that the chains would be much prettier if I just used the second shuttle and unflipped stitches.  It worked very well.  I just wish that I had thought to do that on ALL the chains.
I will however be doing that for this next round...

Which has MORE LOOOOONG chains lol

Oh, and in case you are wondering, the thread is size 60, my own "Young Hearts", which is now in the shop! But, not in size 60, only 20 and 40.  This thread won me a blue ribbon at the Delta Fair earlier this month!!

Now, I must really go to bed since I am supposed to be going to the Tiger Walk with Livi in the morning!! Woohoo!!

Thank you to everyone that donated to her Fundraiser today and yesterday!
She appreciated it very much!

She thinks (or hopes rather) that the money raised will be enough to earn her class an ice cream party.
Thanks to the ones that donated, she has another $80+ to send in!
Thank you so much!
Y'all are such a blessing!!

And if you couldn't donate but wanted to do so:  We really do understand that times are tough, so we understand completely! :o)


  1. Aah, you are tatting the Lace Mat nude .... ha ha ... that doesn't come out right. I mean, as in no decorative picots. With blocking it will turn out perfect. I had to block my first Lace Mat because of the long chains.

    someone used that term on me once for when I tatted the Starlight doily without picots, but I can't recall who it was.

  2. Your mat looks nice and when it's blocked it will look better.
    Hope you have a nice walk with Livi

  3. It looks very lovely! Must be that color way! Very nice "nude"

  4. Fabulous "blob"!!! :)
    I hope my blobs look that nice!!!

  5. lol, I like the "nude". I tat nude very often. lol I tend to like the picot-less style. I guess I am just a "no frills" kind of gal. :o)
