For Josephine Ring (JR), I can manage the thread twisting, but I hate to count the number of stitches done if I lose count of it. Like most, Jane's suggested alternative way to tat up the JR is new to me. I managed to tat it this new way, but had to try a few times before I get it, and my JR is not looking its best.
Now, I'm fantasizing that we might be tatting an animal - the button's the head, ring 7 with the 3 bead's the tail, and the JR's the leg! Are we tatting more JR, Jane ?
I was meddling with a variegated coloured crochet thread like a size 10, and came up with this heart on a paper clip. It's such a small one, I wouldn't count it for the 25-Motif Challenge yet until I have time to develop further on the heart and/or tatting it on the paper clip.
