Yes, I am still here! Followers and friends on facebook are probably most updated on the current happenings around here, and if you don't count the washing machine that went kaplooey, everything is just peachy. As of late I've become a one woman tatting sweatshop, without any new and interesting things to show.... I'm contentedly relegated to making the same black pair of Spanish Dancer earrings that I can't keep on the shelf :-)
My tatting workstation has become mobile and utilitarian again as I've moved my goodies back into the monstrous box (I'd link you to the previous post, but blogger's editor is being a bugger grr)For the first few weeks of farmer's market, I was moving thread and tools in and out of my corner twice a week...needless to say I now just park the big tote in front of my chair in Tat corner between market days. My cute little owl tatting bag (I never showed that, did I?) that I got from DS9 designs while at Shuttlebirds is not seeing as much use unfortunately. I end up bringing all of my chain and findings (I stock 5 finishes now), most of my beads, as well as my wire tools and it's served me quite well as I've been able to customize earrings and necklaces on the spot, shortening a chain or changing earring hook styles. Gained a few sales by being flexible I suppose :-)
Anyway, I'm off to go hose out the rest of the soapy laundry that was in the the washer before it broke.... I'll be back once the copy and paste functionality returns on blogger's editor.
P.S. Your comments keep me going guys! I'm so thankful for my tatting friends! Dr. Vonthreadmore has gone on vacation for the summer. She has assured me of her return after market season, but she sends her best. Off traveling the globe in search of inspiration I suspect....
