Amused


It's Tuesday everyone! And I've been tatting! However un-amused I am that this "Amusement" doily took me two weeks to finish..... It's done. That darn Lizbeth "desert bloom" is hard to find patterns that work well with the colorway. But, in the end I like this. Suzanne, the ring closing thing finally clicked and I understand what you were saying. I'm only successful at keeping that last stich in place about half the time, but I'm definitely aware of it now! I can now say that I confidently drop the shuttle through before closing the ring. except when covering a cabone ring. Then it doesn't work.

Anyway my friends, I am more amused with life today. We got some news that our deal with buying the house has found it's way out of a pile on someone's desk and is actually moving forward. No approval quite yet. But hey, I've only been doing this since JUNE, what's a few more weeks lol?!?! And I've lost a few pounds, that always makes a girl feel good.

Edited to ad-The pattern for the amusement doily is out there somewhere, the link wasn't working yesterday, but just in case it comes back, try HERE

BEAUTIFUL doily!!! You did a WONDERFUL job!

Congratulations on moving from pile to file - I hope the momentum keeps going your way!

And I think I may have picked up your lost pounds, no thanks necessary...

I found the same thing with Desert Bloom colourway. It looked really fine on the snake I tatted for Anthony; so I thought I might use it on another bookmark some time. It works nicely on your piece, too.
have a happy day! XX Bev

A very finely done piece. You are very neat. Is it done in size 20?
