And then I have this doily I have taken back out to work on. I started this one last year after winning Yarnplayer's beautiful Summer Trail HDT. I'm very used to whipping out a crocheted doily, so when a tatted piece takes me longer than I have patience for, I have to put it away for awhile and work on something small that I can complete. I'm ready to get this one done - it's such a pretty pattern. This is the Starlight Doily from the Tatter's Treasure Chest, using Yarnplayer's size 20 HDT.
I've also been playing with blinging a few more shuttles after receiving some of Diane's shared papers. Tatters are so incredibly generous! I also received a trade package last week from Sue Anna for a bag I offered that included waaaaay too many things for just one bag. HDT, a Pop-a-bobbin shuttle and bags by Jane E., and some Lizbeth. It felt like Christmas! That has happened to me a couple of times now - I am embarrassed to receive such wonderful gifts, but hopefully I can do that in return for someone else someday.
Back to the shuttle-blinging - no wonder I don't get anything completed - I get sidetracked easily :) You can't see it so well on the pictures, but I've glittered these shuttles and am layering on the Mod Podge to get them finished properly.
I especially love this little matching tin and shuttle. Now I have to buy some more Altoids so I can make more tins to match my shuttles!
And finally, I am staining this little wooden box that I've had for years. It's something old that my Dad gave me years ago, and I've always intended to finish it. Maybe when I get this done I can store my shuttles in it?
In any case, I have projects all over the place. Nothing is done. I lost an hour today with the daylight savings turn-back of the clock, and the afternoon is really getting away from me now too. I need to make supper and get ready for the work week again. The projects will have to be squeezed in where they fit. Did I mention I've been motivated to get working on that Artisan Phase II of the T.A.T. program also? I can't possibly work on just one thing!
