Yay! =)

Soooo I have figured out the problem to the resolution issue with the patterns--and now they're fixed! If you have any problems with the patterns (like a funky bobbin count) feel free to comment. I welcome tips, too!

So, I just realized that the resolution is funny with the patterns... um... so I'll work on a way to fix that.
Whoops =S

More tattery and tatting =)

Sooo, I will soon have updates on my projects =D =D I've been really busy with school, but I've managed to work some more on my big fat pattern and also on my green project. I've also started a little purple square to practice wheels, and something that will hopefully turn out to be a more traditional project in white that I have yet to fill--even though the outline's been couched down for like two months.

Also--to get to the real purpose of this post other than me telling you that I will "soon" have updates (which I will) with pictures--I've found an ENORMOUS compilation of tatting tutorials on YouTube, and have posted a handy dandy link in my useful links section on the sidebar -------->
First of all, I must say, thank you kcabrera74.


PS --> the tutorials are both in Spanish AND English =D =D =D =D

Here's a picture of a practice I did of the things I know how to do in tatting (thanks toooo this guy and this youtube video) : rings, picots, chains and joins:

It's just a random collection of boo-boos here and there that made it vary so much, but I think it looks cool =D

updates and other thrilling stuff

So, it's been a while, and I'm still super busy, but, I do have some stuff for ya:

I know so far most of my posts have been about needle lace, but I've also been doing a lot of bobbin lace too. As a matter of fact, I've posted a new page with.... -drum roll- patterns!

Here's the wider pattern in progress:

I was going to do alternating half stitch/cloth stitch square thingies, but since this is the biggest pattern I've done, I figured I might as well take it easy and did everything in cloth stitch except for the fans.

Yay? Nay?

Oh, and yes I do realize that maybe using white thread on a white pricking wasn't the smartest thing I could've done... oh well =P

Anywho, on another note, I've also taken up tatting. Shocker of the century (for me at least): I went into this fabric/arts and crafts store and found a tatting shuttle! If you live in Mexico, you know how weird that is. Specialized stuff like that isn't common and so obviously I flipped out.

I will soon take a picture of my awesome new tatting shuttle and some beginner level tattery (is that a word...?)

Um, so

I know I haven't posted anything lately, but that's only because I've had an insanely crazy few weeks. My family came to visit and a certain someone with a blog had a b-day ;-) unfortunately, I haven't been able to do a whole lot of lacing, buuuuut I did do some.
I triple pinky swear that I will have some updates in the near/not so near/distant future =D
