2nd tatting of Sharon's Chatelaine

I tatted this chatelaine in Altin Bazak instead of my usual DMC Cebelia. I also only tatted one accessory arm, as I am used to wearing this crochet hook around my neck whenever I tat. I don't know if I will ever use the red one or not. I don't like the weight of the scissors, even though it would be great to have everything attached together. I have a purple cord that I will attach to this one to use.
Can anyone tell that while everyone else is out enjoying their Labor Day holiday, I am cloistered in my home trying to hide from my migraines?

Thanks again Sharon for the lovely pattern and we are still praying for you and your family.

Your chatelaine is beautiful! I'm really into purple lately, so this piece made me go "oooh!" I agree with you about the weight of scissors on a chatelaine... I have a quilted pouch from my quilting days, and I wound up not wearing it around my neck because it was too heavy.

I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling well. I've suffered from migraine since I was about 4 years old. The headaches are not as intense as they used to be... my mid 20s to early 40s were the worst. Have you tried a chilled lavender sachet across your forehead? I find that to be soothing. I hope you're feeling better soon!

Thanks Diane. I think I shall use this one.
I am sorry you also suffer from migraines. It is good that they are not as bad for you as they were. I have been out of work on disability for two years the 19th of this month. I will have to try a lavender sachet. I always just grab something from the freezer for my eyes/head and go to bed. Feel welcome to use my email anytime you want to talk.
