Playing hearts

Did you miss me yesterday? I missed me!!! I'll tell you what the problem is - confession time!!!

I'm in the doldrums. I've got another Fandango square started but that's strictly for traveling with. I tat in the airports - not on the plane - so I'm not 'allowing' myself to do anymore of that. I have the latest one to finish but that will be shown soon.

Over the weekend I decided that I know BC3 pretty well now and his propensity of ignoring my statement that I don't need more threads!!!! I'm sure there will be thread at Tat Days so I thought that IF I was tempted I'd better have a look at my stock to see what I need or don't need. 

I then realised that I couldn't buy anymore thread as I don't have ANY spare EZ Bobs to wind HDT onto. So I reckon the answer is to empty some of those JUST IN CASE I was 'forced' to buy more HDT. That's what I'm doing at the moment.

As I've quite a few EZ Bobs with just a few yards on them I decided I'd empty them and make little things to give away as gifts or to give to people who make cards. Here are just three small Fandango hearts.

Good thinking! I also have a lot of bobs or cardboard cores with just a little thread on them. Just as in my kitchen I have bottles with just a little chutney or jam in them - they should also be emptied!

You could always buy more Ez-Bobs........
and I've always rather liked the Doldrums -reminds me of a peaceful, warm bit of sea with no demands made upon me - it's nice just to allow yourself to drift sometimes. I wish BC3 a good holiday and look forward to seeing what emerges from your Doldrums.

You're the best, Jane Eborall!
Jane McLellan, you're pretty cool, too!
I tat SCMR butterflies with my almost empties--give them to my grands' school mates when I go for lunch duty.

I know I feel lots of my shuttles are really thread holders it's shameful :(
Love the tatted doodads they are beautiful :)

Very pretty!! :)

Maureen said...

Madtatter, I used to feel like that too - but then I began to unwind my shuttles onto plastic bread clips - the thread's still there, I haven't thrown it away and now my shuttles are empty . ( I may be running out of space in the kitchen where I store the containers full of bread clips).

Somehow I think that more HDT will come your way - look at who's coming to Tat Days!

Jane Eborall said...

I always wind thread back onto the ball unless it's less than a yard and a half!

Pigmini said...

Isn't Maureen lucky.... their bread still comes with the plastic 'tags'... nowadays ours has tape round it with the date on!!!... I keep 'running out of shuttles' too!!!

Anyway, I think that 'someone' should 'donate' that HDT to a Tatty OG in Yorkshire!!! VBG

Love your hearts Jane, I too wind my thread back on to the ball, probably learned that from you. Love those EZbobs for HDT.
