In the doldrums

OK, so there's the TIAS to finish off (mainly uploading the links), a technique page to finish off (should be ready tomorrow) and then - nothing.  
I don't know what to do next.  I'm babysitting this evening so I have a hanky edging to take and do while I'm doing that but I've no idea what to make now.  

I want to start a new design but have no idea what to do.  I'd sort of like to do a new animal but have no idea what's wanted/needed.  ANY suggestions would be gratefully received!!

Inspiration, please contact brain cell 3 before he deteriorates into brain cell 2 or 1 and worse still, disappears altogether.

How about a puppy pattern? I don't remember seeing one?

Now tat's a great idea, painted barn. I'll start a list and then run it past brain cell 3

Or a Tiger, a Wombat or a German Shepherd dog? I have two newborn German Shepherd grandpuppies - they were like little black slugs when they were born but now are fluffy teddybears.

Relax for a bit? Give busy brain cell #3 a rest and I know he'll come up with something brilliant!

How about a plattypus!!!

My grandson has been asking for a stingray. I haven't checked your pattern page, because I told him it would have to wait until after Christmas. Besides, I think the color of a stingray is boring. Maybe a colorful stingray?

Corina said...

Oh wow, I'm looking forward to the TIAS. And I guess you'll know what to do soon enough. I hope you will make a ferret one day...

I have always like koala bears.

Marie Drew said...

Poodle please! can't find one anywhere without beads. But anything you make is um,addicting. Husband thinks I've gone button crazy.

How about a fox with a fluffy tail?

How about a bird of some sort? I'm looking at the gift bag my sister sent me that has black-capped chickadees on it, wondering how they might be translated to tatting. Or a blue jay would be pretty. Or a goldfinch.

Jane Eborall said...

Oh, thanks everybody. You've got me motivated already. Miranda I do have several birds already. A robin/bluebird, a dove and a parrot/cockatiel. Maybe they could be 'converted'?

I asked for a Scotty dog a while ago. Someone did make one on the same order as your goat. But I'd like to see it more Scotty-ish. With a good square nose and perky ears. Thanks, Jane.

Merry Christmas Jane and Happy New Year.
Brain cell 3 only needs a moment to catch it's breath and then it will be inspired. I see some good suggestions above.
There is an interesting picture of a tractor in Christmas lights on Wanda's Knotty Thoughts. Maybe that would be something to inspire you.

IF by some Christmas miracle you haven't already chosen a new project, I would like to suggest a fawn (as in, baby deer, not the mythical creature who has goat legs and plays a pan flute) -- although....one of those mythical fawns might be a lot of fun too!

I have to echo "plattypus"! My niece is craving one -- with "Perry the Platypus" colors to go with her shoes, backpack and hat!
