...I tat because I enjoy it and I think you do, too. While I love a challenge, I refuse to let my hobby become a dreaded chore. While I don't give up easily, I think it is perfectly acceptable to put a project in the UFO bin to be revisited on another day (maybe a very distant day) or just toss the thread, toss the pattern, or toss the whole project into the recycle bin.I found this interesting as I have been busy at work finding a home for the threads I really do not enjoy using - loads of it! Bye bye Cebelia #20! I kept the #30, #80 and all the white #20. There are only a couple of balls of these.
It feels very freeing to accomplish this whittling down and the thread went to good use. I do not feel so pressured by having so much thread I will never use. So, there you are, Eliz; I followed your advice and am feeling so much better!
I got so excited about the "space" created that I started Jon's Medallion from her Sweetheart patterns. This is a really pretty motif used in a number of patterns... Thanks, Jon! It is always a pleasure to tat your designs.
What I find curious is that I could not bear the Cébélia and have ranted about it for the entire time I have been posting on tat-ology. But, I do not mind using this Perl #8, which I bought in New York, in that funny old establishment in the Garment District.
It is soft and floppy, but does not try to be what it isn't and the colours are great, I love the shine, so for a break I enjoy using it - with Boye shuttles!
Maybe because I purchased it with my daughter, on my birthday and met a ginger cat in the store accounts for the fondness, but I do no think so.
THE HANKIE? Good news! I am so excited to show you what is happening with the old "H"! It's all good! Tomorrow... I am glad I am so blasted stubborn. : ))
