oi! oi! oi!

Well firstly. I have decided to FINALLY do some tatting i am actually going to wear. It is going to be Janes pattern HERE. And it is going to come across under my bust on a black shirt. I was contemplating edging everything, but it already has an edging on the shirt that is black and stretchy. Which is funny because the patterns picots match up to the... i suppose you could call them picots...on the shirt. but its stretchy. And i don't know how the pattern would look. and whether or not to put it facing up or down over the shirt. So I figured that I would just do the under bust first and then do a sample on the shirt.

I went to the thrift store last week...well actually a few..I found at my regular thrift store TONS OF THREAD. No shuttles, but tons of size 30. There were like 5 or 6 bags of thread. One bag had 10 balls of DMC 30 in ecru. and since i couldn't ever think of when i would use that much ecru, I went for the smaller bag of 30 that had 5 balls of variegated thread. And a treat. A new ball of LILY. its purple and yellow... i have no idea what i am going to do with that...

Last night while making dinner, I was struck with something I hadn't been struck with in a couple years. I really really wanted to turn on my music and lay on a comfortable bed and be left alone, completely alone. So I put on my mp3 and imagined myself tatting on a comfy bed while listening to my music, alone. I could see it happening in my I wish i was 17 again. just for a night...or two. But then I would remember i have kids and start to miss them...damn kids, making me love them, and crave their cuddle...DARN KIDS! lol.
