Oh, how I wish I could stay home and tat all day long! It is an early dismissal day, though, so I can't complain too much! I'm hoping that Carol will cook dinner or go for carry-out so that I can spend some quality tatting time today!
I"m slowly but surely making progress on my Primrose Path doily. Have I mentioned that I love this pattern? It's challenging enough that I don't fall asleep while working on it, but simple enough that I can work on it while I'm watching t.v. or listening to music. I love the colors I've chosen. This is my "trial" doily, where I haven't paid attention to where I started tatting the floral motifs with the variegated thread. When I get to that one, I'm thinking of using green for the second section, even though it's a lighter shade. Or, maybe I should stick with the blue. What do you think?
I was lucky enough to win a tatted bookmark from my friend Laura. Isn't it gorgeous? What I wasn't expecting was the bonus of two hankies and two bobbins! Thank you, Laura! How did you know I've been thinking about hanky edgings and bobbin lace?
