Proud Beauty

 


As many of you know, I have been working on this doily intermittently for several months. It was supposed to have eight motifs joined and a rose center. The more rows I put on the rose, the longer the chains, (of course), and my arthritis just won't let me finish it. So..... I have joined it together and I have another purpose for it. I think you will all like it very much. It will probably be a couple of weeks before I can show you the finished project as I have to wait for part of it to be done somewhere else and sent to me.

I spent maybe a total of 30 minutes yesterday finishing the end of one of the motifs and then joining two motifs together to make a circle. My head was pounding and I could hardly see by that time. My neurologist ordered a MRI on my brain which I had today. I hope we will be able to find something to help me soon. I ache to return to my tatting and reading.

Oh, the thread is Yarnplayer's Rhubarb Pie in size 20. The pattern is from "The Tatter's Treasure Chest."

That is beautiful! I cannot wait to see the finished project! I am curious to see what it is! Is it a linen center???

Oh, MRI's of the brain are no fun with a migraine! I hope they gave you ear plugs and stuff! I sure hope you are able to get some relief from this nasty headache soon!

(((Hugs))) to you, dear friend! :)

Thank you all very much. I just don't feel like addressing each of your comments right now but want you to know how much they mean to me. Hopefully I will have some relief soon and can get back to myself.
