Sorry for the lack of posts; things got a little crazy here.
My aunt asked me to finish a latch hook project for her, so two days also went to that --two days which ended with a very angry Stephanie as I realized that there wasn't enough yarn in the stinkin' kit. Called them up and got the yarn today, so I'll finish the hooking tomorrow and then will come the very fun part --putting this thing together. It's a bear; not a picture of a bear, but an actual bear. :-/ How much do you want to bet that I mess up cutting the pieces out or in constructing the thing after all the hours of hooking? Pray for me! :-*
As far as tatting is concerned. Yes, I have been tatting. :-) Nothing to show off, but I've been doing it, I swear! Thanks to a woman incredible generosity, I even got some proper threads to play with! :-) Thank you, incredibly generous woman! ;-) She also sent me shuttles, so I've been getting frustrated with those. It seems like I'm doing it right, but I can't move the thread to get more nor can I move the stitches on the string. I'm pretty sure I'm not getting the "flip" right. :-( I was really hoping to learn it quickly since it seems so much better for times when I'm in a car. LOL. I don't like the idea of playing with a needle in the car... just doesn't seem safe. LOL.
I sat down with the shuttles, a book of needlecrafts (it has about 5 pages for tatting -shuttle. LOL), the computer, and string and still got frustrated. Hmm... maybe I'll try it again tonight... Or maybe I'll just grab a needle and tat something. LOL.
OKay, enough rambling. Time for me to try and get into my InTatters account which for some reason doesn't want to let me in! :-(
I shall be back later --hopefully with something to show for my time!
