Earlier this week I made a tatting video to help a fellow tatter with tatting the blocks in Karen's Cross. The total video is 30 minutes long but took all day to capture. It's crazy how long editing takes to get accomplished. I have to give a round of applause to those who've done these. Karen has an entire library of how to video's on YouTube. My mind is boggled when I think how much time and effort has gone into making those. I had a hard time remembering to slow down and pick the camera back up after knocking it down. Then I kept going out of focus because I had to tat with my hands way out in front of me to give the first person view of the tatting. There is the finale of that particular video piece I have to film edit and post.
What else have I been doing? Well, I've been making short chains of those Minnows and clipping and giving them away. They tat up relatively fast once you have your rhythm going. I want to do the kitty one with some bigger thread. So far everything I'm making is in size 40 or 80 thread. I do have to visit Jane's site and download her sea creatures to make my underwater collage for the wall. I think I'm going to browse Tatland for patterns to make into collages. Tatting with a purpose sounds good.
I haven't forgotten about the Jan doily. I'm just procrastinating on it right now.
