I haven’t completed anything new lately, but I am crafting. I’ve been practicing my tatting. Just making a long piece of lace. It’s not for anything in particular. I have just been feeling like tatting. Nice thing about tatting compared to crocheted lace is that since it is a form of knotting, it can be cut to the size I need. If I was to try to do that with my crochet without a LOT of effort on my part it would come completely unraveled. When I use a crocheted lace edging I prefer to crochet it directly onto the item I’m working on. Tatting on the other hand, there may be a few stitches that come undone, but that’s it. It’s for that reason I like keeping a long piece of tatted lace in my sewing box. I can easily add it as last minute decoration to something.
