I went to visit my daughter this week and even took my laptop so I when I had a few minutes I could work on the cross bookmark pattern. And guess what? I had saved the pattern to an external hard drive at home but not on the laptop. So no cross bookmark pattern. Oops.
Not that I had all that much time to work on it anyway. You know how it is when you get around family and two-year-olds, right? I did get a little time after his bedtime to tat a little, but not much, though I did finally get my bookmark for the Tatting Forum's bookmark exchange mailed off.
Instead of working on the cross bookmark I got some work done on the heart bookmark. Okay, very little, but some :-) I'm trying the second design out, finding out if the drawing can be tatted the way it is or if changes have to be made. It's interesting figuring out the best way to tat what was drawn, can it even be done, and in one pass or do you have to cut and start in a different place?
My first attempt at the second version. I see a few changes are in order.
I didn't have tea this morning for Tatting Tea Tuesday but a cup of coffee instead, flavored with French Vanilla La Crème, which I tried for the first time at my daughter's house. Mmmm, very good. I also tried the Cinnamon Vanilla La Crème, which is scrumptious, too. They have been added permanately to my grocery list ♥"Funny, I don't remember being absent minded."
