8 weeks, see any difference?



This January, after about a 2 year hiatus from tatting, I picked up my shuttles again and made this bookmark. Which one you ask? Well, I'm hoping at least some of you can tell...... The other was tatted this week. The same exact Flora size 10 thread was used for both. Just thought it might be a cool illustration to see if I've improved much in the past 8 weeks. Also this is #24 for my challenge, I didn't count the first one I did because I didn't know about the challenge at the time. I want to tat something cool for # 25, Maybe the hanky edging? I'm scared though, I bought a scalloped hanky and for some reason it's intimidating me! Kind of like those Geico commercials out right now, with the stack of bills.....staring from across the room......

While both are beautiful, it looks like your tension has improved with the bookmark on the right. (o:

Beautiful! I had to super-size the picture to try and see any differences. Great work!

Your bookmarks are very pretty! Were you doing needle tatting before? I guess I didn't really notice.

Ladyshuttlemaker got it right!

And I had done needle before, but before January I hadn't tatted at all in two years.
