Cross in Lizbeth  #605 and Manuela #019, both in size 20

This is all I've accomplished in the last two weeks.  I'd finished it off and then noticed that I'd made a very noticeable boo-boo, making a ring in the wrong place.  I'm thinking I'll give it a try to tuck in the ends and touch it up with glue then keep it for myself, a reminder to PAY ATTENTION!  If it still comes out awful I suppose I could cut back both threads to the mistake and redo that last arm.  I'm not sure I like the rings on the chains anyway, so maybe it's just the way it is.

I've been working 10 to 12 hours days for the last week on a different shift than normal, so there hasn't been time or energy to do very much of anything.  I'm finally back to the usual hours but have a lot of things going on at the house so I'm not sure how much tatting will get done any time soon.  This is why it's carried with me at all times, to grab a moment here and there when free moments present themselves.  Here's hoping to many free moments!
