Picture to go with previous post

Some times blogger won't ket me post a picture and write words at the same time.  This is the pic that goes with the previous post.

Smooth as glass

The water this morning is smooth as glass.  I'm sitting here waiting until my breakfast settles so I can swim.  Its funny but Mondays always seem to have the best weather.
Thanks everyone for the kind comments about the rocket.  I tried very hard last Christmas to come up with a pattern but nothing worked.  Then about 2 months ago I was trying to design something else and saw a rocket instead!  I blame Erin

Rocket Girl!

This little rocket pattern is about to lift off to the Palmetto Tatting Guild for the grab bags.  Whoosh!

Having a party?

You might think that's confetti and I'm having a party or a wedding.... Maybe throwing a little rain dance party to appease the gods and end this dry dry summer?
Sadly no, that's not confetti all over my kitchen.  Apparently I have NOT emptied the catcher on my hole punch for a very long time! 

ps.  It also helps to put the cover back on before punching more holes.

Tattindipity:  When both shuttles run out of thread at the same time.  This miraculous moment allows the tatter to start the next repeat using CTM.  Many do not believe this occurs naturally in the wild.

More Spring Doily 2016

This is a comparison of Renulek's Spring Napkin at round 6 in size 10 and size 20 thread.  I laid the size 20 version on top of the size 10 version.  There's about an inch of difference between the 2 sizes around the edges.  I haven't done anything on the size 10 version since but it will be interesting to see much bigger the 10 thread is than the 20 thread when the doilies are done.
