This morning I brewed a cup of herb tea - mint, mmmm!- and sat down to work on my exchange butterfly and what do I see but a BIG mistake! I missed a join and a chain, and it wasn't the last thing I did, either. Grumble, grumble, *sigh*
Instead of finishing the butterfly I retro tatted. And it's dark thread so it took me awhile (the eyesight is one of the first things to go, obviously!) to get back to where I started last night. I knew I was tired last night, but I didn't know I was that tired! If I had just not picked it up after work I would have been done with the wings by now!
And then I had trouble reading the pattern for the middle! I turned it this way, and that way, and turned it over.... I finally figured it out (I think) but again, didn't get as far as I thought I would.
So instead of showing at least a part of the butterfly - as a hint until the recipient gets it - I have nothing to show for my tatting time today. I spent all my time either retro tatting or tatting and had no time left for pictures.
But the tea was delicious!
