I missed it! Sort of.

Yesterday I got up, fixed a cup of tea, put my feet up and tatted for a little while. In fact, I kept tatting when I should have been writing this! I did finally put down the shuttles, but then it was time for work. Which was a very long day, so I didn’t have time to post after work. It was Tuesday, I had tea and I tatted, I just didn’t get it posted for Tatting Tea Tuesday. So, just for a minute, pretend it’s yesterday, have another cup of tea and see what I was doing.

I’ve been making snowflakes in both white and colors. The one in the bangle is, of course, Lizbeth thread size 20 in Caribbean (surprise!). The white one is in DMC size 20 Cebelia and the other one is Lizbeth size 20 in Christmas Delight. (Okay, the paperclip has a horse on it – they’re fun to make and I had to try it in this color!)

I had a terrible time finding a background for these in the short amount of time I had yesterday -oops, that’s today, I mean. At least they show up.

I have several projects that I need to start but keep on with the snowflakes and bookmarks. They are so quick I feel I’m getting a lot done with the time I have to tat. Still working a lot of overtime so I don’t have a lot of energy to think up the next thing. It’s easier to keep doing what I’m already doing, momentum I guess.

Thanks for joining me for my Tuesday Tea and tatting, even if it was a day late. I’ll try to be on time next week!

  1. Finding time to tat along with working overtime – that's a feat in itself! Thank heavens you have a job – overtime is really a bonus right now. Funny how when we have the $ we don't have the time – and vice versa!

    The momentum of whatever I'm working on carries me too – away from housework and food prep 🙂

  2. Your motifs are so pretty! I especially ♥ the one in the lower right hand corner! The design is really cool!

    I am working a little extra right now, too and have no time for tatting. Kudos to you!

  3. Yes, Cindy, it's a feat alright – I just don't do much around the house! After standing on concrete all day my feet need a rest. Yes, I appreciate having a job, I'd just like a life, too!

    Thank you, TattingChic. Believe it or not, the one in the bangle and the Christmas colored one are the same pattern except the Christmas colored one has an extra arm – I oopsed and it turned out very nice. Hope you find some time for tatting soon. I always love seeing your 'work'!

    Thank you very much Elizabeth. Yes, the snowflakes are my patterns. The horse is a modified version of Debbie Arnold's seahorse from ds9designs.

  4. Wow, color me impressed with your tatting output — especially knowing that you are working overtime. Your snowflakes and horsey are so cute!

    So glad you are able to share your Tatting Tea Tuesday tales. I enjoy reading about them and seeing your motifs and such. Always lovely!
