Bothersome Bs (4 and 5/25)
I had this marvelous idea and right now nothing is working. Lest you get concerned when you view the picture....I am NOT tatting another last name....repeat NOT tatting another last name. I might be called upon to tat initials or a last name of 3 letters or less sometime in the distance future.
I am trying to make a texture and color book for a baby. I wanted to put the first initial of the child, a B, in the book. But my Bs aren't looking right. I tried to come up with a variate of the letter that I tatted before, but it looked like a D with a line in it. Then I found letters from Gillian Buchanan. Her B looked great, but mine looks like an 8 (I did drop off the extra picot since it is for a boy--I thought that it would be more boyish). I would like to figure out how to alter the block B since a lot of people I know have a last name starting with a B, but that will have to wait. Any ideas? I'm posting this mostly for my own memory so that I can alter it in the future. I think that for now I'm going to tat some animals for the book instead.
