My tatting addiction seems to have moved to a new, more serious, level. Total immersion has always been my way. Mother used to say that I scared her to death with anything new. I always jumped in head first, sink or swim. I thought I was managing this tatting addiction pretty well on my own, but after this morning, I think I might need some professional help! When you read this, you will probably agree.
Bill was flipping through channels, as men are compelled to do, when he stopped for a minute on NBC. Ann Curry (spelling?) was on screen and I was curiously drawn to her eyebrows. Go figure. I just kept looking at them and thinking how pleasing they were and wondering what she had done to them and why I liked them so much. It was starting to worry me a little. I've had a cold and cough and thought maybe I'd had a little too much cough syrup. Then, I realized what it was. They reminded me of beautifully executed block tatting where it flows back into a chain! Now, I'm sure even Jane, the consumate tat addict, would agree that this is extreme. How do you look at a woman's eyebrows and see tatting? I can understand that those of you who design see tatting in leaves, butterflies and animals, but eyebrows?
Please let me know if you think I need therapy for this condition and where I might find it. All I ask is that you don't tell my Dear Hubby as his idea of therapy for this condition would be total withdrawal from tatting and we all know THAT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN!!!
I hope you get a good laugh out of this. I did!
