Today was another sub day, and tomorrow will be also. Somehow, I managed to get back on my old school days schedule, and I accomplished a lot!
No, I did not tat all of these Ice Drops today. I tatted the one with the blue ribbon last night, and I started the one with the pink ribbon last night and finished it before I left for school this morning. The Ice Drop with the blue glass gem is one I really like. I started that one on the teacher's plan period and finished it when I got home, and the last one I tatted while waiting for Dave to get home. Whew!
I started weaving another band yesterday. I'm having a difficult time getting the width correct on this one, and I think it has to do with the thread I'm using. I wanted to try something thicker than size 10 crochet cotton, so I selected size 5 Artiste crochet thread from Hobby Lobby. This is a polyester thread rather than a cotton and it has a bit of texture to it.
When I finish this band, I think I'll try this pattern again in the size 10 crochet cotton and compare the two. I do like the black and pink together!
I like to walk on our porch, which wraps around two sides of our house.
The view of our garden is beautiful, and I was inspired to take a few pictures.
This is Dave's busy time of year, and our garden takes a back seat to his busy schedule until around Memorial Day.
Come Memorial Day weekend, Dave will start cleaning up the gardens and pulling out all the weeds that I enjoy, at least when they have pretty flowers on them!
