I was doin' pretty good with the whole new post each morning thing, right? I thought so. Then, my stinkin' printer/scanner decided that it no longer wanted to let me print or scan through WiFi. Then, it didn't want to connect via USB to my desktop.
Without pictures, I figured there was no point in a post, but how am I supposed to get used to a schedule if I don't go through the motions, right?
Well, yesterday, I tried using the webcam. Note that I haven't used one in probably ten years (at least), didn't play with settings, and am an incredibly shaky person.
On Saturday, I received my copy of Ms. Marilee Rockley's Tatted Jewelry! (Did I mention she SIGNED it? Eeee!!!). I was in the middle of doing something and wouldn't let myself open it until I finished --good idea because I got lost for several hours after I ripped open the envelope!
I dove right in and started making things right away. Here are the three.
These are "Keyed Up" on page 23 done in LizBeth 662 and 605, both include size 11/0 Czech glass seed beads.
(The green one that you see half of is in 144).
This one is in Color 109 --and wanted to jump off of the paper and lid that I'd laid it on for the picture! LOL.
Those that have the book may notice that I omitted the top ring. Personally, I like how they look better without it --until a jump ring is added. Oops. I knew it was there for a reason! LOL. I already have more of these to shows and I don't think I'll be stopped with this pattern any time soon. Perhaps because, when ordering the book, I was drawn to this pattern and almost ordered it at the same time in PDF format?
Well, hopefully I'll get the stupid printer/scanner (Stephanie, insulting it won't get it to work for you...) to work for me later --And actually scan at the right size which has long been a problem for me. It appears, though, that I'm not the only one with this problem. I'm thinking of blaming Epson, but I'd rather blame Windows.
Enough rambling... If I want to add that to my list, I need to get started like yesterday! ;-)
Love and happy tatting to all!
