Twenty houses lost the telephone and internet for a week, we were one of them. It happened about two blocks from our house in a metal box substation. Our phone service is on strike so it took a bit to get it back. I did not miss the phone at all! But, I did miss the internet. We checked out e-mails when we parked the car in front of Sweet Thing #3's apartment and hooked up to her wireless. Husband wouldn't stay long enough for me to follow blogs or write in mine. I am trying to put in two blogs a month. I won't make it this month.
On Mother's Day I finished Renulek's Spring 2014 doiley. The largest doiIey that I have made. I like how it looks and I will use it as motif #7. I have not washed or blocked it yet so it is a bit wrinkly.
I was wondering what to do next when I saw the Butterfly Doiley sitting in a basket. It had been sitting there for a LONG time with only four rows done. The Butterfly Doiley from Tatting from Burda was begun back in 2014. I had tried to figure out how to make the butterflies different colors from the rest of the tatting. I was not able to figure it out. So, I am doing the row of the butterflies a different color from all the other rows. Rows 5 and 6 have gone rather quickly and I am finding them easy, I don't have to do a lot of thinking. I have done some untatting on Row 6 as I am not always paying attention. This is being made with Lizbeth size 10 thread, blue ice and white. We are flying to Texas for a family wedding over the holiday week. I will see if I am allowed to tat on the plane.
May you all have a nice holiday and I will see you in June.
ADDENDUM: My entry was written last night and I took the pictures this morning. Remember how I said I don't always pay attention, here it is.
I was getting ready to finish last night and was looking at my work. 2/3rds of row 6 had been tatted. Right in the middle of that tatting was another mistake. Each time I made a mistake it was the same one. The other mistakes had been caught right after I made them and were easy to take out. This is the one which got away. Now I will cut and redo.
I sure hope they let me bring my tatting on the plane.
