The new big project -nuntium centesimum sexagesimum duodeseptuagesimum

After I completed the Quatrain, it was wonderful- light, free relaxing.  Nothing to finish.  I made crosses and snowflakes and goofed around.  Then I floundered.  Should I made Renulek's doily?  Should I make something from one of the hundreds of books?  And still I floundered.  Then I saw it- the shawl.  On a blog I couldn't read.  With no pattern only a length and width.

Well, why not?  I had all this strange Romanian thread which was given to me by the kindest lady.  It wasn't white, wasn't a color, has a strange slight elasticity to it so why not just leap into something new?

So I did.  And I've been working on the mail part since January.  Here's a photo:

Well, then I started this blog post and I thought- I'll show the original link so people can see where I'm going with this.  And in an epic knucklehead move, I didn't bookmark the link, I didn't pin it on pinterest, I didn't download the picture to my computer, I didn't do a screenshot or anything else.  (All of these I would usually do in my usual brilliant overkill style.)  The original blog was Hungarian or Polish- I don't even remember that- as if I could do a search in either of those languages since I don't know what the original said.
I do remember the original blog had other things than just tatting and that the blogger wasn't a prolific poster, that's all.  I even went through the 377 blogs that I follow (okay not the technology, Latin or archeology ones) in hopes of finding it.

The final product ought to be interesting.  Tee hee.


  1. I hate when I forget to bookmark something that I find especially interesting. I'm glad you have enough to go on that you can make your shawl. I look forward to seeing it.

  2. I am looking forward to seeing the shawl, Have you tried a blog called Vera,

  3. We'll have to wait until you finish then!

  4. Oooh, that sounds really intriguing Michelle! A tatted shawl? I wish we could see a bit more of the work already done. Can't wait til you reveal more. :-)

  5. That sounds like a wonderful project. I will be interested in seeing progress pictures. I am with Frivole, I would love to see more of what is already done.
    Don't you hate when you don't bookmark something and then can't find it again. good luck with your search.

  6. instead of searching for tatting, maybe you need to search for frivolite?

  7. Ooh... A lovely mystery! : ))


gratias maximas- it's wonderful to hear what you have to say!
