School is in full swing, so tatting time is severely limited. I love school but I'm missing the tatting. I'm following the blogs during lunch (all 28 minutes of it!) and I saw a lovely little cross at Elizabeth's blog. We met up with my grandparents and aunt and uncle on Sunday so I got to tat in the car.
This is not only motif #15 but it's also my first attempt at "front-side/backside" tatting. I'm just not convinced the final result is worth it. I LOVE the cross though.
The thread is some of Anika's hand-dyed and it's lovely to work with. This is my first piece with HDT too.
On Saturday, I went to our state fair for a little bit. We live only 6 blocks from the "Great Minnesota Get-Together" which means fireworks every night for us. I went to the arts and crafts building and was sad to see very, very little tatting in it. I won't comment on the quality because I'm not a judge and I don't know what they look for. I was encouraged to enter something myself and I'm going to try to get Cindy to do the same.
Ah, what's that I hear? The siren call of correcting? Yep- hopefully it won't be so long for the next post.
Latin for today: lavistine vasa? = Have you washed the dishes? (I'm sorry there's no audio, Vocaroo is changing to be a fee-based service which is too costly for this budget.)
