To keep my mind alert while I healed I played a bit with these, so I would not forget how to tat them.
Sluggish? Yes, I have been tatting slowly the past few days... You see, I was forced to cut away many repeats of the Snowflake Napkin.
: (So, I am where I was about three days ago and there is a lot of wasted thread in the bin. I kept tatting the very same mistake over and over again.
That is what happens when I get bored and I do become extremely bored with large patterns having many repeating motifs.
I do have a marvellous excuse, however:
This injury is NOT related to tatting!
Can you believe (Michelle, take note) I got my thumb caught in the lint remover of the giant dryer in our laundry room? I mean really, who does this?
This is the almost healed digit. When the wound was fresh, the thumb was initially black and then deep purple. Needless to say, it has been quite sore and is in a most painful spot, making spinning the bobbin a problem, so tatting has slowed down and so my concentration wavers as a result. Good excuse?
Promise to self: I will not to take on another oversized pattern after I finish Renulek’s last row of this piece.
A hummingbird once anded on my mom’s fingers. She always had long, immaculately manicured nails and that day she was wearing a colourful polish.
I covered the Altoids tin I have been using for tatting with a bit of the paper. It makes me smile.
Have a look at this tatting.
It is absolutely GORGEOUS!
