Another One!

Yeah, it bothered me just a bit that I didn't get the picots to come out right although I think I like the frayed part better. I had enough thread on the shuttles to make another so I did. I said no more than 3 yards but each shuttle had about a foot over 3 yards and I used all of the white and all but about 12" of the red.

This one doesn't have beads either but it's a quick tat once you get through the picot daisy start. It's really easy and a good one for someone wanting to get started with the picot daisy technique. The rest is just "rings and chains".

I had to get up really early to get to work for some training and then after nearly 2 1/2 hours straight of talking, I thought I was going to go hoarse. Instead, within an hour of being back at the office, I had a lot of sore muscles. I'm not used to standing that long straight - and I was walking around about 70 chairs to get in front of the group periodically. Not the best set up for a presentation but at least we had plenty of room this time. My back was hurting too until I came home and finally put a few plants in the ground that I bought a week or so ago. Must have stretched my back in all the right places.

Here's your laugh for the day!

I really hope they threw the stick for that poor dog after all the entertainment he provided them.


  1. Gina,
    Both ways are very lovely! Thankyou for sharing them with everyone.

  2. Great heart too! :)

  3. That is a very, very funny video! Thanks!

    Oh, ya... the tatting is lovely! I like this one a lot better. You like frayed bits. I don't!
    Fox : )

  4. I think they are both really beautiful :)

  5. p.s. Thanks for the tip on this pattern. I just downloaded it and though it looks complicated, I will take your word that it is not!

    I forget how to accomplish this technique and this pattern is small enough to have a go at it.
    Fox : ))

  6. Both hearts are nice Gina, but I like the contrast of the frayed bit against the tatting. Cute video.

  7. Lovely heart, great video with the dog loved it

  8. I think both are just lovely! Funny video!
