A new way to induce labor!

I'm all about doing things the natural way, that's just me. So after having personally experienced the wonders of this new technique, I cannot help but spread the word about this all natural way to speed things along. You've probably heard about Castor Oil to bring on labor, but how about this:






Clunies!
Pregnant women everywhere should try doing clunies for the first time as they near their due dates. If you look at the picture above and count three clunies from the right, you will see the exact spot I was working on when my water broke :-) In the middle of Online Tatting Class of course, I had to tell Georgia and the others that I'd have to get back to them later. In fact, I came home from the birth center to find my notebook open with thread and shuttle on the desk in front of the computer, with that third leaf not yet pulled closed. Women everywhere, inform yourselves of the many benefits of tatting!
Hahahaa I think it's just hilarious! Anyway, as you can see I've been working on them here and there since baby was born. I think I've got the basic hang of it, just need to work on making them consistent in size. I've also been working on a little something from that Myra Piper book. I pulled out some of the vintage thread to work on my fine thread technique, it's a fun color that looks like pink lemonade. I don't know why, but thread colors remind me of fruit beverages all the time. Mmmmmmm.
So, life is good. Hubby is home til after Memorial day, then Mom comes the third of June to stay for a month. right now I'm on my way over to tatting corner hoping to start working on more jewelry, but really I should look at the clock because I'm sure that as soon as the thread hits the shuttle it will be time to nurse again. I don't mind though. I really love the newborn phase. I'll try to get a picture of her in a hanky bonnet soon!

It IS hilarious and should be reported to the College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists toute suite! You are definitely on to something here!

Aren't clunies the BEST!

Krystle, you're doing great with the clunies! Keep up the good work. I htink you'll be able to mix clunies and newborns if you've figured out how to put down a half-done cluny, then pick it up and finish it! --Mimi

I don't plan on having any more babies myself, but I'll keep clunies in mind if any of my daughters get pregnant and decide to learn to tat!

Hahaha! You are too funny, girl. Clunies are looking good. I can do them, but they're not very consistent in size and shape. The next time I get the urge to practice, I'm going to use Elisadusud's method of making the loom to see if that makes a difference.

Yes, hurry and post some pictures of the adorable little baby and her big sis! We'd love to see her.
