I’m drawn to simple things that turn out to be complicated.
Complicated: Keeping your attention on the road when it’s straight for 35 miles with nothing but fields on either side.
Simple: Plagal cadence.
Complicated: Double the fifth in the bass (pedal) with a suspension on the top.
Simple: Classic square motif.
Complicated: Sewing thread that needs extra joins to keep the overall shape correct.
Here’s a bookmark I’ve been working on.
Another few hours of tatting (and forgetting picots) and untatting (using my handy, dandy, magnifier) and I should be ready to see if it’ll work as is or will need to be in sleeve to be used wisely. (I DO NOT starch bookmarks! One time of trying to resume reading after the book had sat in hot humid weather taught me that lesson!)
