Slow down and relax
I have to take a break from tatting. I'm starting to get spasms in my wrists and hands from manipulating the threads so much. I feel sad, tatting is a wonderful way for me to relax. Well, I will take a break for a week and see if my hands feel better. Meanwhile, here is an entry submission to my county fair from last year. It placed second with my 3D florals placing first. 0.0 The pattern is a modification on Jane Eborall's 3D teddy bear pattern. It was tatted with size 80 DMC white thread with 2 biconal beads for the eyes and a simple bead for the nose. I didn't tat the tail because of time restrants so I use one of those wire pipe cleaners for it.
