I'm still on experimenting with super-duo twin beads: now that I got the hang of it, I can say something more to you too. These beads have 2 holes, I use them loading what I need onto the shuttle thread and put them as normally done with beads in picots. Then, for example during a second round, I place the second hole "over" a picot where a join is needed. See this page to revise beaded tatting.
I'm planning to write a tutorial, but you know that I'm a lazy kind of designer, so you should be patient with me!
Local news: last Sunday I went to a lacemakers' meeting, mostly for bobbin lace makers, but I had also the opportunity to see other type of lace, like macramè or netting by women from Bosa (you can read this great post by Jeanine: Sardinian Bosa Filet Lace , so well written, as usual).
I was soooo happy that I met a new tatting friend, too! She was teaching how to needle tatting to another woman and then she learned how to tat clunies! It's fantastic! I'm looking forward to another meeting that will be held in July!
P.S. How do you stay updated with your activity on the blogsphere? I mean, how do you know when someone is replying to a comment you did in someone else blog? I think that I'm confusing Blogger and FB, right?
