We had a great time, and she was a great help. The first few weeks with the newborn were hairy, but she has made that transition from "newborn" to more of an infant now. I thought she might be more work than her sister was at this age, but she is growing and becoming just the sweetest baby ever. And she always smiles for mommy and saves me the best coooing sounds. And she lets me tat every once in awhile too! What a great kid.
I was in the mood for something different, so thus came the purple flower. It's a pattern that gained popularity on the blogs some time ago, Anyway, the purple was my first attempt at it, done in some size 50 HH. It was kind of hard to keep it even at that size, so further attempts shall be done in size 20. The other doodles came from my facination with this technique of the chains going around and around, messing with repeats and stitch counts. I haven't done it before, honestly I'm not sure I like how they look in a design all the time, (with the exception of Martha's teapots :-) but they sure are fun to tat. I was thinking of doing something to make a pendant of some sort, we shall see. Right now I'm back into my TAT projects. I got fed up with one of them and took some time off but now I think I'm ready to get moving again. I really want that cool little pin after all!
