I find it amusing that no matter how many amazing and beautiful patterns I find, I never have the time to tat them all!! Thus the WIP (work in progress) and UFO (Un-Finished Object) are created. Currently in my lovely tatting bag from Diane (LaceLovin' Librarian) I have four WIPs and four UFOs... Geeez!
- My mom's doily I made her for Mothers day - I gave it to her with a couple more rounds to go and now I'm on the last round so I'm close...it's only the end of August, right ; )
- I'm playing around with something totally new: tatting with yarn in my new Starlit shuttle from Handy Hands. It is kinda fun to work with yarn because the smallest tatted flower turns out to be pretty good sized and the shuttle is so big that it holds a nice amount of yarn.
- I saw on Pintrest that if you tie macrame knots over your earbuds/headphones for an iPod or MP3 player the chords won't tangle. So I'm tatting the first half of a double stitch over mine so that they won't get all messy in my backpack or purse. I love the jolt of color and the spiral pattern that the half stitch creates :)
- And my last project is possibly the most exciting! I entered in the Doodad Dare and am working on my surprises! Well, there are actually 4 doodads that I'm working on so my WIP numbers are through the roof! Oh well, it's a good think I love tatting!
Hope you are will have a wonderful and safe Labor Day weekend!
