After a frantic search yesterday, I managed to track down both the tea cloth and the smaller balls of the thread I had made and put, genius that I am, in a different project bag. And since all the project bags are the same but for the stickers from getglue.com, I had also promptly

I have come to understand that you cannot have a steady income with tatting. People think that you can pay cheaply for hand made crafts anymore. It's very disappointing.. It also then makes it hard to bartering. . *SMH* One person come here for me to teach her.. and then said thank you and left.. never another word from her again. I didn't realize my time was free . . .
SOrry.. Needing to vent...

I have been working very hard on different projects, but was unable to post any pictures until I purchased some batteries for my camera! Finally bought them yesterday and so here is what I have been up to.

Ideas and pictures welcome, join me as I 'nut out' a pattern from a picture...
This has been one crazy, hectic summer. I've been feeling the need to tat something, anything, just for the graceful simplicity of it. This edging was in the the first pamphlet managed to dig out. My world was a little more zen-like, and the little one got a cute bracelet. The universe has balance once a again. For now.

Since I was up anyway, I decided to buckle down and finish the black necklace. the split ring chain was 17 inches, so I only made one flower. it has a clear cracked glass bead for the center, and the second round has shiny black gunmetal 4mmcubes to hide the area where the second row was added on to the picots of yhe first row.. I haven't taken the picture yet. but will add it sometime today.. take care and keep tatting

...I wonder what books and blogs inspire you in your tatting/craft?
Hello again from East Liverpool. Ohio. I haven't had much of a chance to work on my tatting, new medicine makes me very sleepy. I am a persistant tatter, I finished the black split ring chain, Iran out of working thread, just as I finished the last stitch. It has been my experience, that with tatting, if you think something is difficult,it will be. So I am resigned to thinking that this particular pattern is do-able. I look forward to your comments.

So I am re-reading all my posts and the threads they appear in and trying to use all this information as a rough draft of technical tatting advice.
It would be useful to me to let me know when I said something that

It's put out by Lacis Publications. The pictures are amazing, but although I feel that some instructions were lost in translation.the diagrams seem accurate.
I will write more later, right now I need to tat.
