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.


  1. I think you’re right, solid colour will show the pattern better. Yes, it’ll be interesting to see how or if the world changes.

  2. Well I feel the world reacted instead of acting personally. No one seemed to care that in the past years when we lost many more people from the flu and I am fascinated how just media controls people like puppets. To recover from this will take alot I hope the world is ready to prayerfully consider and study what they have been told, and research what is going on and learn from all this. I am glad people are being more responsible with hygiene and maybe if school returns people will be careful not to send there kids to school sick. But sure hope that the people that are financially destroy by this don't decide to take from others and or hurt themselves.

  3. I foresee a change to a slower world. We will grow used to slower things, time to walk, not having to rush everywhere... gorgeous doily!

  4. Your doily is looking great! I like that you're sticking with the white for now. I have not joined this challenge yet. I have too many projects going as it is! The biggest change for me is that I am now 100% retired, at least through the end of April. I do miss going to school every day and supervising the lunch room!


Thanks for your thoughts - I read and appreciate every one!
