I am tatting!


I've had a couple of frustrating days, but I am managing a little tatting. I was stupid, or senile, last night and took this morning's meds instead of last night's meds. Boy, have I been a mess today. (More than usual.) I got my first installment of Jane's "Tat It And See" done today. I think this will be fun. I have also started my doily with Marilee's "Rhubarb Crisp" hand dyed thread. I have agonized over this pattern decision and finally decided to retat the friendship doily that Elizabeth, J.B. and I did last year. It is a simple pattern, but I think it will show off the thread beautifully. When I get the center done, I will post a progress picture. It won't be near as intricate and delicate as Clyde's, but I think the thread will be a nice presentation. Thanks very much to Clyde for advising and assisting me in picking out a pattern. Tatting with hand dyed thread is such a special pleasure and I don't want to waste an inch!

Laura, please don't compare my doily to yours they will both be beautiful in there own way. I can't wait to see pictures to see how it is progressing. Don't you hate it when you take your meds at the wrong time, nothing like taking a sleeping pill at 8am in the morning.

Thanks Pamela and clyde. I will post pictures, maybe by tonight. A sleeping pill in the morning would be bad enough, but no sleeping pills at night and too much blood pressure medicine is worse!
