The other day, I was tatting in my bedroom. (I'm a good wifeypoo and opted to watch television in there so the hubby could watching television and listen to his radio in the living room... Silly me...). I came out to go on the computer and got a bit lost. Hubby kept complaining about my tatting stuff being all over the bed (well, it was his side...), so, in a huff, I went in, grabbed it all, and brought it back to the living room. I MUST learn not to do things "in a huff"!
Fast forward to the following morning. I awake thinking, "Ow... It felt like something poked me." I laugh it off, figuring I'm still half-dreaming (so not true that you don't feel pain in dreams --I feel it all the time --and never wake up when I actually get hurt while sleeping). Of course, I make the same motion I made the first time... Ow! It feels like something poked me! This time, I get up... and then I see it... A thread. My heart sinks and I dare not touch it... but I must.
Yup, you guessed it, I pulled the thread and, at the end, was my finest tatting needle! :-O It was embedded so deeply into my blanket, that, had there not been string attached, I would have had a VERY hard time getting it out... Needless to say, it's bent beyond recognition. I tried several ways to straighten it and, well... No such luck. Thank God my birthday is on the third and I'll be able to get new needles! :-D
Since that dreadful day, my tatting seems to have come to a standstill. It's not even the needle I use most often (it's in second place, though), but, for some reason, since that happened, I just haven't sat down and really concentrated on my tatting. :'-( Tomorrow, I need to get reviews done over at the writing website (writing.com) since my membership runs out at the end of the month and I don't want that to happen, but I swear to tat at least SOMETHING! I still have more cards to do, so maybe I'll work on that --but I'm so incredibly sick of butterflies and flowers right now! LOL. I need to make bookmarks for someone, so perhaps I should try and figure that out. I've never even completed a bookmark --Tried, but never cut enough thread. :-( Yes, at least one bookmark tomorrow. Maybe I'll take out the paints and cardstock and use them as well as tatting...? Hmmm....
Well, I hope everyone out there is having a lovely day! I know my days are getting better. :-) Thank God football has started! (Okay, so only pre-season, but, still... it's football! LOL).
