Tatting Challenge Progress

I’m continuing work on Tat-a-Renda's 14-day Tatting Challenge. Slow, but sure and relaxed, which is the intent!  Currently on Round 7, and she has posted up through Round 12.  A little each evening for me is just what I need, as the software battles and frustration during the work day leave my brain (and my eyes!) a little too tired for much handwork.  But it’s coming along nicely.  I think I’ll ruin the overall pattern that this doily is shaping if I change back to the variegated for a round or two, so I’ll stick with white for now.  Maybe the final edge will allow for some color again?  We shall see!

At some point we'll be able to look back on this time and remember how it changed the world.  I wonder what new ideas and norms may come from this?  Will we appreciate more and want for less? Will our environment benefit greatly?  What will the changes be for businesses like manufacturing, software, internet, restaurants?  Without focus on the gloom and doom of the situation, we can concentrate on the opportunities for bettering the world. Stay strong, friends.
