Day 14 of The Never-Ending Monday!

I’ve had to work the last couple of weekends – last Saturday I worked all day, and part of the day on Sunday.  Monday was a Federal holiday here, so that was my one day off for the week.  I worked yesterday, but don’t have to go in today.  Yay!

I was too tired to go to the Online Class last week, but did download and print the lesson.  Here is my homework – both colors are Lizbeth; Wildflower Garden and Medium Antique Violet.   I like these colors together!

I’ve started (and now nearly finished) a second medallion, done in Lizbeth Spring Fling.  Other than a maple leaf in fall colors, that’s all the tatting I’ve had time (and energy) for.  All this overtime takes a lot out of a person!




  1. Shame, it is horrible to have to work for so long! I hope that you enjoyed your day resting!

    Your tatting is beautiful. :)

  2. Those coloours go well together, sort of lifts it, a pretty design.
    Too much work and too little tatting!

  3. I'm always amazed at how much tatting is accomplished by those of you who have jobs! This is a very pretty medallion and the colors are excellent together.

  4. Interesting colour combo - I am undecided, but keep coming back to look at it!
    Fox : )

  5. Hi, Sharren! Big wave from Tennessee!

    That's a beautiful mediallion and I have to second Kathy about that combination! Yummy!


  6. Being a huge fan of Wildflower Garden colorway, I was excited to see how it paired with Medium Antique Violet. I LIKE IT! Your motif is so very pretty. And like, Fox, I keep coming back to look at it. :-D

    Would it be safe to presume that your tatting has helped maintain your sanity during all the overtime?

  7. Thanks for all the kind words! It's been tough at work since before Tat Days (we're going through a software conversion) and so far this week, I've "only" averaged 10 hours per day. Whew! But it's nice to get overtime pay - I treated myself to a little Handy Hands order to celebrate still being sane!

    My tatting average is low - in the last three weeks, maybe 40 minutes a day. Pitiful! Hopefully in a few more weeks, I can work a more "normal" schedule and spend more quality time with my shuttles and the lovely threads I ordered!
