It's a rainy day in the soggy South! At least we don't have to be anywhere this afternoon and there's plenty of food in the house, so the skies can rain all they like - we're all set!
There are so many things I want to tat! I just got the first Tatting Times issue of 2012 and it has two lovely little hearts (one by Martha Ess!), a vintage insertion, and the "Golden Arches" doily, among other interesting stuff. I also ordered Karey's new book, "Bouquet of Bookmarks," and can't wait to start one!
Work continues on patterns I hope to submit for teaching at Palmetto Tatters Guild Tat Days in September - "Blast from the Past." I've got six patterns in various stages of completion, but they're all started. Photographs are being taken. Thread ends are being dealt with (where appropriate). I really like all the patterns this year, but as I used one as my annual giveaway at work, I got a little tired of tatting it. I tatted over a dozen and a half in about 10 days!
It's particularly fun to play with colors on several of them - I found several color combinations I would not have put together otherwise, but which really look good for these particular patterns. Boy, this is tough to talk about without using pictures!
Kitchen sounds are telling me that dinner is about to be served. It's lasagne, a huge frozen one from Aldi Foods, but it was already in the freezer and ready to go, and since it's raining out...
