Sometimes in the life of a tatter something goes wrong, we all make mistakes no mater how clever we are or how long we have been tatting.
Well here's my cock up, yep I tatted the 4th round, the whole lot and then went to add the flowers in-between the circles, then disaster stuck I had tatted five rings in each circle instead of six, the flowers would fit but not the next round. I had a choice.
1. Cut off the whole round and start again, wasting a lot of thread
2. leave as it is and stop there, its still a pretty mat and I do like the colours
3. Give it as a birthday present as it is, the person who is going to get it
does not read my blog and wont know there's a mistake
Well there you have it, I am doing number three at least no thread is wasted, no time wasted in re-tatting and in the words of my husband you have enough doilies why do you want more. He's pleased that I am going to give as a birthday present and its not another doily taking up space in the draw.
Will I start again I don't know at the moment, I am off next week to Sheffield for a check up on my eye, and I have a lot of things to do in the next week. I was enjoying the pattern and I was pleased with the way the colours were working out. I will sew in the ends, wash it and block then it will be ready to give.
Hope you are having a nice day
