I went to tatting last night and had a great time. I FINALLY learned how to do the SCMR (Self Closing Mock Ring). I didn't think I would ever get it but the light bulb went off...I did 3 little crosses and I was able to close the ring like it should be. YOO HOO.
I have been really disgusted with myself the last couple of weeks because I wasn't able to do this technique and then last night at the meeting, Kathy looked at what I was trying to do and she told me what I was doing wrong. Then it just all came together...I felt really dumb but now I feel a whole lot better. I'm going to try that pattern again that I could not do three weeks ago and see if I can do it now. I'll take pictures later. I don't know how something so trivial can undermine our confidence but it sure does. Ok, I'll let you know later what I do and I'll also post some pics I took last night of all our tatted Easter eggs. They were really cute. Til next time....
