I’ve finished with the final round of the Saint-Saens. Here’s a detail picture of it. Pardon my photography skill.

Spring is here

I love spring. I live in a Mediterranean climate. That means there’s always something in bloom. There’s always yard work. There’s always a weed growing. There’s always something to plant/prune/feed/water; especially water. We haven’t had as much rain this year as we should. We’ve lost a couple of things. Mostly because our drip irrigation wasn’t dripping. Puts a new spin on being a drip. I hope to keep up this summer. The foot is still not 100% which makes it difficult to stay on top of chores. I need to ask for help.


Off to think up a list of those I could call on.

I have finished the tatting for the Saint-Seans doily. Now it's on to blocking, mounting,framing, and enjoying. It is much larger than my scanner ...and we know about my lack of photography skill..so pictures will be coming in the future.

Pineapple Doily finished

Because my life took a tumble last May, it took me quite a while to finish this. Like 10 months. But, It’s worth it! Here’s a detail.

I like the pattern. It will be some time before I start another square.

The game is done.
TIAS 2014
 Thank you, Jane Eborall, for a wonderful journey.

It’s fun to see all the different colors people used. Some have included sketches or posed their tatting in scenes. Great fun!!

TIAS Day 13

I agree with most of the people guessing on the TIAS. I think it’s a Sailboat. The poems and sketches are fun to see; a great way to break up the winter doldrums. Here’s what my version looks like today:

TIAS Day 12

I set a goal of learning more HTML last year. I didn’t get far. I discovered there are CSS and other stuff. But, I have learned a bit more. It helps to have a daughter in Web Design. I do enjoy the hunt and puzzle, while still keeping tatting time open.
So, here's Jane's TIAS Day 12:
