Overcoming my glue phobia
I tatted these Christmas tree decorations a couple of years ago for a craft fair my cousin participated in. I thought I could put them on my market table on Saturday, but should stiffen them first. Jane Eborall gave clear instructions for stiffening tatting with a mixture of glue and water. I reread the instructions, and the comments that followed, and then bought some glue. I'm so hopeless with glue that I don't keep the stuff in the house! Last night I experimented. The heart is a bit too stiff, so today I made a more watery mixture. I'll have to wait until the motifs are dry before I can see how well I've done, but so far so good.
