What day is it?

This last week and a half has been very busy. There have been long days at work, long enough we’d go home, go to bed, get up, eat a little bit and go back to work. Several times I have gotten the days wrong because they have all run together. I even missed Tatting Tea Tuesday! I’ve gotten very little of anything at home done, and very little tatting. I was doing Jane’s TIAS but the last several times I picked it up I either made a mistake because I wasn’t paying close enough attention, or I had to put it right back down. I have all the days patterns printed off and am going to try to finish it this weekend. Key word is try!

What little tatting I did get done was on the table cloth. Woo hoo! I actually started again! It wasn’t much, but starting at all is a big step in the right direction. The reason I was able to do that much is because it’s the same thing over and over. But a start none the less.

On the home front, we had snow a couple of nights ago and yesterday. It made going home from work the other night take a bit longer than usual. We didn’t have it nearly as bad as Oklahoma, no ice and not as much snow. Just enough to make life interesting. I was hoping to get a snow day out of it, but no such luck. My husband and I actually are getting the same weekend off this week, though. Amazing! We haven’t had that kind of luck in months! Don’t know how much I’ll get accomplished, but at least I won’t be at work!

I don’t have any tatting to share this time so I thought I would share a picture of my Christmas cactus. I didn’t think it was going to bloom this year, but one day I looked at it and it and there were buds all over! I brought it into the kitchen so I could actually see it. Isn’t it pretty?

  1. Such beautiful blossoms on your cactus! What a treat in the middle of winter! You've found a perfect match to the color of the blossoms in that thread. The sprays look like a chain of split rings – maybe this cactus would be good inspiration for a bookmark!

    Enjoy your weekend!
    🙂 Ann

  2. Your Christmas cactus is lovely! So bright and cheerful.

    Will you tat a Christmas Cactus flower? Or something that incorporates them? Your thread looks like a perfect match.

  3. Thanks, Fox!

    Thank you, Ann. Yes, I thought the color was pretty close,too. I really haven't thought about what to make with it, but a bookmark inspired by those blossoms sounds good. We'll see.

    Well, HJ, it's definitely an old baby's high chair. We got it from my husband's family when our oldest was born, a hand-me-down so to speak. And now we have it for the grandbabies. I don't know how old it is, so I can't say it's an antique. It does make a nice background, though.

    A tatted Christmas flower, Isdihara? I don't know, but it would look nice it that color.

    Thanks, Cindy. I was surprised but very happy it bloomed. Some years it doesn't, some years it does.

    Thank you, Tatskool.
