Works in Progress

I haven't had much time to tat in the last couple of weeks, and when I did, I just wasn't in the mood to work on the doily. So I have no progress to report there.

I've almost completed a cross for my youngest daughter in her favorite colors of the moment--red and black.

And I've been working on a design challenge for the online class. Georgia has the first lesson and it is on the schedule for next Monday, May 8. The class will be presented with instructions for a design element from an old pattern and a challenge to create a new design using it. I'd really like you to share the projects you produce for future classes. That will keep us all tatting for a few weeks.

The element is one that has fascinated me for years. I return to it often and have used it in several designs of my own. One of those patterns will be shared in the May 8 lesson. Just what it is will be a surprise, but I think it will appeal to many of you. I'm even withholding the images from my blog until it is revealed for class. I have at least two more patterns to share using this same element.

So whether you like to play with design, or would love to see how some of the rest of us come up with new patterns, or would just like a few new patterns to tat, I hope you'll register for the class and join us next week.
