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!
