Patchwork progress

The top picture is where I am at the moment. Well it was until I changed my mind over those two little triangles sticking out at the top!! They've been cut off now.

The bottom picture is what I'm now planning to do - although I may change my mind several times before it's finished!!

I've got a feeling that there will only be two more rounds after this to fit the little table. I may well be wrong, though. I really admire people who can plan this sort of project in advance. It's well beyond my capabilities!!

Two more teeny tiny snowflakes

Still playing with the snowflakes. In fact I've done lots more since I showed you that lot the other day. Good thing is - they're disappearing as fast as I'm making them. More 'stuff' out of the house which is the main reason for making them. 

Well, that's not really true - I'm enjoying making them as they're fast and simple for a brain free OG.

This is my therapy!!! 

I really love making these and as I was asked for one recently it felt like the time I needed to return to therapy.

I now go to two craft meetings a week. Mainly for the tea and chat but also to work alongside other crafters. On the whole the Tuesday group knits but a few sew and there's a card maker there who loves my little SCMR butterflies.

Well yesterday the badminton group, who meet in the hall next door at the same time, invited us in for a Christmas 'nibble' - or two!!!  I got chatting to one of the badminton group and she was very interested in what I was doing - this week I was working on the bracelet below.  So, next year she's going to come and learn to tat. We had a quick session this morning and she picked up the 'flipping flip' straightaway. There are two others in the craft group who also showed an interest too. Who knows - maybe they'll become tatters too.

Bored with these

I'm bored with these Chrystal snowflakes!!! Doesn't take a lot to bore me once the design is done. 

Having said that I also get bored with designing too!!!  Can't please myself either way sometimes.  

So I may as well keep quiet and get back to the shuttles, eh?

Tat It And See

Finally after a pretty stressful few days (major computer failure and 'stuff') I've finally got the introduction done for the TIAS (Tat It And See) 2016 finished.

The link is here and it's also on the TIAS blog too. I've managed to make some adjustments to the TIAS blog to hopefully 'cheer it up' in appearance.

Meanwhile just to have something to show - here are a few snowflakes to keep you amused!!!  Another addiction nearing it's conclusion, eh?
