In a rut?

I think not!


If I were in a rut, I don't think I'd enjoy working on Ice Drops every day just to see how different glass gems, threads, beads, and ribbons fit together.


I suppose my little experiments could be boring to others, but I am thoroughly enjoying myself!


Some lovely new shuttles arrived in the mail today. I do love Rita Richmond's designs. These are wooden shuttles, and I love tatting with wooden shuttles!


Round 5 of Alenalea's mystery doily has been posted. This was a very simple round, but I think I should have made my picots slightly larger. I needed to steam my tatting into submission!

Denise and I are getting ready to attend the Twin City Tatters retreat in Minnesota next week! Poor Dave will have to fend for himself for five days. I guess I should stop tatting and prepare some meals for him to help ease the pain. Maybe I can get daughter Carol to come over and cook dinner for him one night. We haven't spent much time apart over the past 37 years, so it's very strange for both of us. I'm very happy to be married to a man who supports my interests!
