Back to blue

First of all, let me say thank you to all of you who gave me suggestions for a business name. If there are more suggestions, I'm happy to hear them! I'm going to sit down this weekend and make a decision... there are so many good ideas!

I decided to take a break from the Jan Stawasz Masterpiece today and work on Renulek's Spring Doily. I am seriously falling behind! Luckily, spring break is in a week and a half, and with any luck I'll be able to catch up. In case you didn't know, I love working with blues! I find the colors very calming. No, I didn't get far, but I did enjoy the little bit I tatted.

I decided to raid my crocheted button flower stash and sew them on to headbands tonight. My supply of headbands was getting low, and the little girls at school do love looking at them!

We had a fun day in 3rd grade library today. Isaac showed me his tatted chain, which he's been working on for a long time. I asked him if he knew how long it was, and he didn't know. I showed him and a few other boys that the tiles on the library floor are 12" squares. Isaac knew that 12" equals 1 foot, so he and his friends stretched out his tatting and counted the squares. They were excited to tell me that the chain was 36 feet long! I asked them if they knew how many yards that would be, and they weren't quite sure how to figure that out. I gave them a few hints, and I wish you could have seen their eyes light up when they realized they had 12 yards of chain! When we returned to class, they could hardly wait to tell their teacher. It was definitely a great day in the library!


  1. love those blues :) and you keep those flowers blooming!

  2. Keep the future tatters blooming too!

  3. And you said you were't good at math!

  4. That's a serious chain! Love the way you used tatting to teach practical maths, they'll always remember that.

  5. At least you keep pressing onward!! :)
    Love the story about the boys!! :)

  6. Wow, it Isaac going for a Guinness book record? He should check into that. I love blue also. Your doily is coming along very nicely.


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
