Wow, the time sure does fly! I haven't had any picture to share until now. I shuttle tatted this flower basket (same one I needle tatted in another post) and a single onion ring. I found a few patterns with the onion ring design so I had to try a simple one.
I also shuttle tatted this mini heart. I tried to re-do a join, well that didn't work so the lower left corner looks a little twisted. No it doesn't just look twisted it is twisted. LOL Actually I need to look at that pattern again, I think there is a mistake in the middle. Too many picot's......... Ummm!
I wanted to try the heart again, but first I had to tackle the flower basket. I am pleased with it except the handle could be a bit smoother. I did the last half of the josephine knot. As Ladyshuttlemaker noted in her post I dropped the shuttle every 5 stitches. Her chain looks so nice and even.
So what do you think? I would love for you to leave a comment. Always looking for beginner patterns of small motifs. I would love to find a copy of Patti Duffs "Minitats" book.
