The art of tatting with a shuttle will come next...I feel like I did when I was first learning to drive standard. So much to remember & coordinate all at once. I did & still do drive standard & I'll master this too! lol
Yes, I'm going to master this textile art form of Tatting!
Theory will inform, practice will convince! Our hostess Deana, gave me a pattern for Tatted Booties & told me it was an easy pattern...we'll see. lol
I went for a walk this week & found some finds on the way. It was garbage day & I'm a firm believe in recycling. Look what I found!
One dolly's highchair in perfect shape, two wicker wall scones, & to Rexon's delight, a cat tunnel complete with ball! These were not found all in one garbage but in several as the walk was 25 minutes, each way. I'm trying to burn off some of the city/winter fat, in a healthy way. I've also gotten back to the 'write before you bite' routine, so out of control with food & portion size. I've been to Weight Watchers twice, so I know the drill...just need to follow it!
How rewarding it felt to do the walk & find the finds!
Remember way back when I was making dolls, well my curls from brush cleaning had filled the box & it was time to make another doll. The doll on the left is she & the doll on the right, sporting her Richardson tartan, was made way back around 2004.
It's been a busy week & the next four will fly by as I get ready to go home again. I can't wait to see my gardens that were worked on last year. Spring is so exciting as Mother Nature comes to life!
Thank you for stopping by for a visit & have a wonderful weekend!
A Nice Thought - That came in my fortune cookie!
