A late tatting tea tuesday
Believe it or not I didn't have any tea yesterday. I didn't even realize it was Tuesday.
It was sunny and lovely outside, so I weeded the cutting bed with a chicken lounging next to me. I'm still recovering from the adventures of the last week or so, and I didn't manage to do much else except play with the critters and pick away at a bit of knitting.
As for tatting, I had several goes at a pattern to use as a tea tray mat, that was shared with me by a member of In Tatters (a tatting community).
I kept making mistakes. Actually, I kept making the same mistakes over and over again. For some reason my brain simply would not count to four. So I thought I would leave off for a while and maybe try it again later.
I did tat a bookmark for my dad. I tried to make it more manly looking than my previous ones and I quite like how it turned out.
