Anyhow enough of that, I started Jane's TIAS. Hahahaha! Now that was fun. A lefty tatting right handed and trying to use the right hand to string the beads on the split ring. Just as I thought it would, it took three tries before I was successful. The only beads I had on hand were clear so they don't show up very well, but I just HAD to do it right now. The five minute drive to the craft store would have killed me, ya know. Those coilless safety pins I bought for a you-never-know-when-you-might-need-them situation came in handy! Still need to decide on a third thread color. Something tells me I better do that quick.
I also have been working on a doily designed by Teri Dusenbury. It's called Vanishing Hearts. If all goes well, I'll have it done by tomorrow. I hope. You can find the link on her blog . She has the most beautiful and creative designs. Who'd have thought to make the negative space between rows look like a heart? I love it.Ugh. Look at that wrinkly pillowcase. On second thought, don't!

On a tatting note: I will be starting Jane's TIAS tomorrow. Playing with three shuttles, a pile of safety pins and 8317 beads should be a lot of fun! :D
