January funk

I haven’t gotten much tatting done lately.  It also seems that what has gotten done has had mistakes.
Take Jane’s TIAS 2016.
I was doing great until Day 6.  It wasn’t that it was that difficult but I caught a thread where it shouldn’t aught to be and didn’t notice it until I was farther along.

And this is where I still am.  The way things have been going lately with my tatting I’m afraid to take it out due to the chance of making it worse.
But I am looking forward to finishing it.  Jane already has Day 8 out; I have a bit of catching up to do.
The doily I currently have in the round robin I’m a part of on Craftree is sitting by my chair waiting on me to finish it. I have it figured out – in my thread – but haven’t yet attempted it in the doily colors yet.  I really don’t want to mess it up.
I hope I get out of my funk soon.
On a bright note, I found my snowman that came off in the wash.

But amazingly his scarf, hat and flower are still attached.  I used craft glue to put them on and I really thought I’d find the tatting but not everything still together.  A little blocking and he’ll be as good as new.
I’m hoping a little patience and a little more care will soon get me back to as good as new, or least back to normal!

  1. You'll be right as rain in no time! I am "paused" in the same spot as you share in the photo. I am not in a funk. Just haven't picked it back up.

    In the interest of encouraging you, why don't we try tackling it together? Are you able to FaceTime or Skype? If not, no worries, I will email you photos…mine isn't as neatly done as yours. But I really just want to know if it is a cricket or a frog or something else.

  2. I hear you! I. Sloooow in tatting anything these days…. Complete – almost – lack of interest.

    Your snowman is encouraging! Very sweet. : )

    1. This happens in January after lots and lots of intense tatting before Christmas. This is why Jane's TIAS is a good thing. It is great that the snowman survived in such good shape. I'm sure I'll get back in the swing of things soon.
