It can be done!

Tatting with a newborn!
It's possible!
Highly unlikely, but possible. It requires careful planning, strategic naptime for the two year old, and a camera-ready mother visiting for the month.
Who said miracles don't happen every day :-)

If you gotta tat, you gotta. No two ways about it, LOL.
You are looking great. Nice-looking baby-carrier. Did you make it yourself?

You are funny! You make it look so easy! My DIL just had another baby in May, and I CANNOT imagine her sitting with him and tatting! (Not that she would ever tat anyway!)

Your daughter has grown so much, already! She looks relaxed and happy - maybe because her Mama can play with her shuttle!

That is an adorable photo, Krystle! I'm glad you had that little daily miracle! I believe in miracles, too!

What a sweet baby! I hope you save this photo for her.

Very clever! Who knows... baby may even become addicted to tatting!

The baby sling is handmade, but not by me. You guys will probably see the full collection of baby carriers over the next months......I have wraps and pouches and all sorts of baby snuggling aparatus :-)

I smile when I saw this picture. It's so adorable...^_^ A very good example of great time management LOL.
Wish you all the best, for your family, your babies, and your tatting projects

The baby sling looks nice.
I used to tat, stitch and embroider a lot when my son was born. I had made him many little dresses, pram sets, knitted dolls for his pram and so on... That was a real holiday for me, to have my baby ,mother to take care of everything else and me using my hands!
But alas, didn't have the pretty sling like you have;)
Maybe when I plan my next, I'll ask you where I can get them from.
Love to see you enjoy.
Keep it up!
LOt's of Luv,
Vinnie
