Why I am quiet!

Now I know a lot of people will be heaving a sigh of relief that I'm so quiet but for that one person who might enjoy this blog, I'm going to explain.

I said I was going to start on my Palmetto submission patterns but I've not got to that yet!!

I've had a request for 200 of the small snowflakes that I do for a friend. She's had a big order so it's all hands to the shuttles. They are very simple. Rings are just 2 - 2 and chains are 3 - 1 - 1 - 3 with the picots graded. SO glad that I'm not a gauge user as they'd drive me demented (stand up those people who said that I'm already demented)!!

These small motifs are only 5 rings and 5 chains with no sewing in of ends. I can do one every six minutes. (Just worked it out that by the time I've finished the 200 I will have spent 20 hours on them - that's also a good indication of how much rubbish there is on television!!). I had the order on Friday and already have 112 done. Hopefully by the end of the week they'll be done and I'll be back to the Palmetto designs. Mind, I did play with one the other evening as I do get rather 'bored' with the autopilot stuff!!!

Jane,ahem, ;) LOL! Anyone who take 3 paragraphs to explain why they're being quiet, isn't being quiet. As one of the MANY who enjoy your blog, I have to say, I'm GLAD you're not REALLY being quiet. Sounds like you're up to a lot of great projects and I look forward to hearing more about them when the time is right for you to share! The blogging tatland is very lucky to have you, dear Jane!
