Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Really its been that long since I posted and what have I achieved in that time?  Yup you guessed itnothing. I've even manged to missplace my camer so I cant up loada anything. Oh we did get a new   evil keyboard. So everything I type comes out garbage. I'm sure you are clever enough to work it out.
 Tatting currently working on an amulet bag , some cuffs and the Ankars Hair Clip from georgias class. Im needle tattin and using CTM  rather than real rings and it seems really easy so maybe I'm missing something .

Garden currently over run with frogs ( more pictures later) and pattypan squash
 Weather boiling hot one day raining the next oh and that sounds a lot like thunder as I speak time to get the washing off the line.

Wet weather fairs

Okay it has been a while since I posted anything here. I made the big step and paid up the big bucks for market stall insurance. OUCH! So have every Sunday whenever I had booked into a market down would come the rain. Considering  several of the markets make you prepay this has been an expensive experience. So far one stall I had to pack up completely  due to high wind, have  been rained out on 2 and went to 2 miserable raining all day markets. And guess what the weather prediction for this Sunday is. Yes more rain. And they call this summer!

The case of the Vanishing Tatting time

Otherwise known as .' Its Christmas Time EEEEEEEK!" I think everyone knows how crazy it is at this time of year. Work is crazy shopping is crazy and traffic is crazy and every specialist tries to fit you in before christmas so that they can go on their ever so lovely extended Chrissy breaks. So I suppose its not suprising that my tatting Time is disappearing. In fact its gone entirely and Im currently stealing time from housework. What! I dont see a problem with that. Do you?

I Have finished a few things . These are the tatted  footlets or wristlets which can be worn as either. Made from a basic 6 sided flower pattern joined together it makes a nice firm lace with josephine chain around the finger / toe. I just wish I had a handy foot hand model instead of having to use my hobbit feet.. Well time to fly Byee!

New tatted Heart

Seriously, this was going to take 20 seconds. Get on line mini blog and post picture of new heart I created. Not to be. I don't know if the lines are super slow today or if my picture is too large or wrong format but it's just not happening. So a quick description. Started with middle of vintage doily   ( flower like) and then ran amok with the tatting needle. Its actually quite basic and looks like so many other heart patterns but it's mine.  All mine Mwahahahah. . Anyway I will try this all again hopefully tomorrow.

Finding the little good things.

Sometimes something good will come out of the silliest things. I hurt my knee at work yesterday and was sitting here at home  whining about it. Something along the line of  how typical that this looks like being the first good weekend in quite a while and Ive turned into a one legged pirate. Anyway I suddenly thought what am I whining about I am AT HOME and I can sit on the computer AND ice my knee at the same time. Yay! And then one link followed to another and I found some really inspirational blogs and tutorials . Double Yay!
