magic square - and AOB

Here it is the square, I'm almost there
Details and pattern are here: the chain does the trick 
The pattern for the little box, that I use as a container for the measuring tape, is by Nancy Tracy, it is here: http://www.be-stitched.com/free-tatting-patterns-3/tatted-box/
I circled with the red line a mistake, that I found too late, a miscounted chain. I called Dr. Downplay again and he assured me that nobody is going to see it 😱😱😱😱😱😱 but me...

Then, here it is the AOB ("any other business") part:

I started another little project, just to have fun. I'm planning another thread, maybe a coloured one, and I think to tat it in a squared shape. In the next picture my first sample with DMC white size 80, pattern is from page 57 of a very old book, by Mrs. Warren from 1868, link is here: http://www.antiquepatternlibrary.org/pub/PDF/C-GS001Warren.pdf
I changed the old pattern a little, substituting some rings with split rings, so that a "magic pathway" appeared. I will share a drawing soon, I hope.

The bracelet with zoliduo beads is very close to become an UFO, I can't find it, I'm sure I put it in the "here-where-I-will-find-it" place. We always have such a place, you know!

And here it is my net, it restarted after a winter hiding behind the kitchen's door, I hope to finish it for the end of the summer:

I'm happy to share with you beautiful photos, too. My DH heard my whines for the "very old" smartphone (6 years) I had and the other day he came home with a present: the new one is great for taking perfect photos of my tatting and flowers, that I love!

  3. Dr Downplay is right, no one will ever notice one mistake in a beautiful,complex piece! Wow, your net is stunning. How do you work on it? Do you have to lean over the frame to work?

    1. Thank you dear Jane! Yes I do, I lean the frame against the table, hands have to move over and on the underside too.

    1. And your friend Mr. Downplay is absolutely right! I wonder does he have an American cousin I could invite to stay at my house? She would be a most welcome guest.
