I've been taking my time and trying not to rush to the finish. Rushing is a bad habit, and takes away the enjoyment of working on a pretty piece. I see so many tatters making so many beautiful things, and I admit it - I'm jealous of those who can sit down and whip up a motif or a pair of earrings in no time. Someday I will be able to do that, but for now I'm working on it in spare moments here and there, and those "spare" moments are few and far between lately. My blog reader and Pinterest have me admiring projects far more than working on them!
For tonite, I'm enjoying a glass of wine and admiring my progress. Yep. No tatting, just admiration for small accomplishments.
In addition to reading blogs and surfing Pinterest projects, THIS 5 lb. book:
boring very informative subject has been keeping me somewhat entertained occupied. And tonite we moved from the subject of History to more current public works topics - which means I was relieved of toting this monster around. Whew! Haven't been to school in (ahem) several years, so my old brain is pretty stretched. Another full day of brain enhancing tomorrow, so the Tat-Along project will have to wait for some spare moments yet again.
