Name like song

Name like song

Name like song or Interesting facts about the song “Mr. Sun , Mr. Moon”.

Hello everyone!

My work on the Summer Mood collection continues. I finished third doily. You can buy PDF instruction and video tutorial here: https://fairylace.kozinenko.com/product/mr-sun-mr-moon-pattern/

Oh, where can I get a name for my creation? I like the rays radiating from the center of the doily. It looks very much like a warm summer sun. But in the center is the real moon. The middle is perfectly round. How to combine the sun and the moon in one name? And then I found a very interesting article on the Internet.

“Mr. Sun, Mr. Moon” is a song by the American rock band Paul Revere & the Raiders written by Mark Lindsay. This song originally released as a single in 1969. Then on the album Hard ‘N’ Heavy (with Marshmallow) later that year. The song peaked at number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100, number 15 on the Cash Box Top 100 Singles chart, and at number 8 on the RPM Top Singles chart.
The song was ranked by both Billboard and RPM as the number 95 song of 1969 on their year-end charts. Also the song was featured on the soundtrack album to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. By the way, my husband and I recently watched this film by Quentin Tarantino. The ingenious play of actors Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio!

But listen to the words of the song:

Life is bringing you so down

You don’t think you can make it

Every night is a show down

Every day is just fake it

Let me show you a new place

If you follow directions

You’ll be wearing a new face

Add it to your collection.

How this is in tune with our environment. The unreality of life due to quarantine. Everything has changed and will not be the same, it seems. But don’t be discouraged! I invite everyone to immerse themselves in creativity. And yes, with my new pattern You’ll be wearing a new face (sorry, new doily) add it to your collection!

By the way, let me remind you that you can watch a video on how to connect a chain to a long picot on my YouTube channel. Welcome! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWPPlAbps5I

So, the name like song for my new doily is fine. Do you agree? Write in the comments, ask questions. Subscribe to my blog. And don’t forget to visit my store: https://fairylace.kozinenko.com/

Long picot in a new doily

Long picot in a new doily

Hello everyone!

I try very hard to create a new project every week, do you remember? And now I am very interested in the possibility of combining long picot. Because, this is extremely exciting, believe me!

I plan to create a small collection of patterns using long picots. So, I wrote in a previous post about the first pattern in this series. I called this napkin “Mandala.”

And the Mandala pattern is already on sale, welcome: https://fairylace.kozinenko.com/product/tatting-pattern-doily-mandala/

In the next model, I combined picot of different lengths. It turned out interesting. This pattern is not for beginner tatters, of course. But we must always evolve, right? I simply have to try new tricks, new methods. Because I feel how each new knowledge increases my self-esteem. Yes, don’t be surprised. I am also sure that the long picot in the new doily creates lightness and airiness. You know that these properties are especially appreciated in lace. Do you agree with me?

I hope you appreciate my new job. And I would like to know if it is worth creating a collection of such napkins? If you write your opinion in the comments, I will be glad 🙂

So, this is what my new doily looks like. Again, I am at a loss in choosing a name, alas 🙂 I will try to make instructions as soon as possible (maybe by the end of the week). By this time I should come up with a name as well.

New week new project

New week new project.

Hello everyone! On June 17, my competition for the best name for tatting doily ended. Ah, how many beautiful names, how many kind words I received! It’s amazing! I am extraordinarily inspired. And after a wonderful weekend (I hope your weekend was also good!) I start my new week with a new project.

I decided to use an interesting technique for the center of this doily. It looks like bobbin lace, doesn’t it?

I want to call this doily “Wheel of Time”. Because the alternation of dense and airy rows reminds me of the running of time in our lives. I think each of you has come across “long” days when time goes on endlessly. And I know there are so “swift” days that fly by like an instant. This is the wheel of time that moves without stopping, then slowing down, then accelerating. Zoe Carbajales came up with this name. I hope she will not mind using this name for my new project.

Previous option

So, I did this project 7 years ago. And the previous version of this template looked like this.

Now I decided to slightly change the general appearance, changed the color and thickness of the threads. I’m very interested in your opinion on the title. Therefore write in the comments, please. Is the “Wheel of Time” suitable for this doily?

By the way, pay attention to the personalized shuttle that I use. Do you want one for yourself? Check out my store, please: https://fairylace.kozinenko.com/product-category/patterns-tutorials/tatting-tools/

You can also watch a video on my YouTube channel, welcome: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0zrZP-a6dQ&list=UU3dn4_9pp7tIKA2k564wLBQ

So, I will try to finish the pattern at the end of the week. Anyway, I will try! But after tat, I will need to draw a graphical diagram in a computer program, write instructions and mount a video tutorial. Yes, I plan to add a video to this manual. Do you think the video helps a lot? Or is it a waste of time? Oh, I’m talking about time again! Write your opinions in the comments.
