another star

Today in Italy is the day called "Ferragosto" (follow the link in wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferragosto), it is also a Catholic feast day. But I'm a hopeless romantic and my favourite day in August is the night of San Lorenzo, the night of the shooting stars, on the 10th, when you make a wish for each falling star that you get to spot in the sky. With stars in mind, I've been playing with DMC yellow and Lizbeth "vineyard harvest" size 80.


I've tatted the "tuft picot" with the Lizbeth thread, I think it changes shape with size 80 thread, it looks "fluffy. Pattern is original.

In that motif I've also used a join that I don't often use, the OTT (Over The Top join) by Jane Eborall, that you can find explained here: http://janeeborall.freeservers.com/OTTjoin.pdf

☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ Buon Ferragosto! ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
Ciao,

    2. Dear Ninetta :).

      I am sorry for the confusion! I wasn't thinking and got you confused with another tatter! It is why I deleted my comment and posted another comment without the mention of the book :).

      The book is legit and I bought it from Barbara Fay :).

  10. Regarding star# 2, I have done A, B and C. I think I know how to join D to the picot on B. I cannot figure out how to do the OTT to B when doing E. Also, how is E connected to C?
