Today was a day for organizing, so there wasn't much time for crafting of any kind. I did take some breaks and when I did, I chose to doodle.
I emptied one shuttle with this pretty little pattern from Tatting Lace, the book I showed on yesterday's post. I'm not fond of the length of thread that passes under the rings, but I imagine those threads could be hidden as the piece is sewn down. I do like the way the pattern flows.
I had two other shuttles I wanted to empty. I had an idea in my mind of what I'd like to do. I didn't sketch it out or look for something similar to what I wanted. I just sat and tatted. This looks nothing like what I had in mind! I think I will sketch out my idea and then try to make it work. I'm sure my idea will work. ;-)
With daughter Joanne's encouragement, I spent most of the day reorganizing my sewing room. It's far from being finished, but I did make good progress. Tomorrow we're going to visit daughter Carol, so no work will get done, but Joanne and I already have plans for Saturday!
