More starlight - nuntium duocentesimum octavum

This year during Spring break I did some tatting- yay and I've been listening to Peter and the Starcatchers, Shadow Thieves, Secret of Rundoon and Sword of Mercy (mostly while cooking).  Any wonder I chose the "Starlight" doily?  haha.

I forgot to take a picture after round 2- how excited am I?

And on a completely unrelated note, tomorrow I will be giving the 7th graders a presentation on "Integrity - Let your "yes" mean "yes".  This falls to me because our teacher who has done this for many years needed to go on medical leave.  I don't mind doing this but here's my dilemma.  He has done this for many years and it's quite good.  I would like to use some of examples but as my own rather than "Mr. So and So used to...".  Saying them in the first person give them more oomph but is presenting someone else's stories as mine for the purposes of example less than ethical?

How about if I 'fess up at the end?

Ah, the things I ponder at 4:00am.  A time when I could be sleeping!


  1. Oh my! Your doily is so gorgeous!!! :)

  2. Love the color combination. Very springy.

  3. Some of the audience might possibly have heard him use the examples, so best not to pretend they're your stories. You could say, "Qoting Mr X" and then use 'I'. Good luck!

  4. Your doily is beautiful! I agree with Jane on the approach to your presentation. I'm sure it will be memorable!

  5. So, what if you use YOUR stories? Give the audience another dimension on the old theme? Lots of work? But rewarding for all? Hmmm. Just my authentic thoughts! : )

    You tat fast! This is wonderful! Did you not just begin this pattern?

    1. It was Spring Break and they're actually pictures from this past weekend. (Integrity, inschmegrity!)
      My story just isn't as good as his but I think I'll use his starting with "My friend tells this story.... and then say it as if I were he."

  6. All good advice and I knew my inner voice was the right one- you all agree!

  7. Looking beautiful, love your colours

  8. Love the Starlight doily! How did the 'Integrity' story go?


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