Just a little something

Just to pass the time until I really decide what I  want to do next.  I need a big project.  Something to keep me out of mischief.

This is the chicken wing coaster which I've done with two strands of sewing/quilting thread - just to make it more of a challenge!!!

I'm going to have to find time to go through all my bits and pieces soon and sort out those that I want to give away to friends.  Once we're back to the sewing/craft groups I'm going to take those things along and just let people take what they want.  I don't need all this 'stuff' around me.  Boxes full of tatting that's never been given a home.

I've made a couple

I've made a couple of these Dreamlit bobbin holders because I've found my originals SOOOOO useful.  Now I'm wondering whether anybody will want them.  Please would you ask around or leave a comment if you would as I don't want to waste my time making more if they're just going to sit around the house!!!

I really find them so useful and I usually leave a 'tail' hanging out so I know which colour the bobbin holds.  Unlike the round bobbins, when you do this with the oval ones they don't come unravelled in these holders.  Picture just below along with the new ones.

In the doldrums!!!

I think I need a kick up my butt.  Everything seems to be ‘too much trouble’ at the moment.
I have a new design that’s going quite well but really needs finishing.  

I have nothing to keep me out of mischief in the way of an ‘ongoing’ project like the poncho was.  

In fact ‘doldrums’ is exactly the right word for where I’m at at the moment.

I’m hoping that somebody will give me the kick I need but in the meantime I’m going to just make patterns that please me - if I can find them.

The picture is one taken on one of my walks and is just to cheer up this post.  I WILL be back!!
