Spring has actually felt like it’s been here for weeks but finally my red bud tree is blooming. I’m sitting outside while I write this enjoying the birds singing and the lovely flowers in my lawn (okay, they’re weeds, but at the moment they brighten up the lawn). A little while ago a wild hen turkey crossed our yard followed closely by a tom, eager to show her his lovely tail feather display.
I have done very little tatting this week, so have nothing to show. I did post the Easter egg pattern on the sidebar. Unfortunately, I haven’t had much time to work on it, either. It’s mostly written out long hand, but does have pictures and general diagrams. I wanted to get it out there before Easter even if it’s not quite the way I want it. I will be updating it when I have a little more time. It is mostly a ring and chain pattern with a couple of SCMRs. If you happen do make it and find any mistakes I’d be happy if you’d let me know so I can fix it.
Though I haven’t done much tatting this week I do have tatting related news, I just haven’t had the time to work on the pictures. Maybe I’ll have them ready for next week.
Speaking of next week, April first is this coming Sunday – International Tatting Day. I have a list of things I need to tat and am hoping to be able to sit and enjoy some chocolate while I work on at least one of them. If it’s a nice day maybe I’ll try to go to the park or sit on a public bench somewhere and share it with the public (tatting, not necessarily the chocolate).
