Unfortunately, the shop will be on vacation for the next week (starting tomorrow afternoon) because I am going out of town! I am SOO excited!!
I am taking Livi to Knoxville to see the Imagination Movers in concert, which will be on Sunday. I got us the good tickets too. The good tickets get you a wristband which gets you into the after party. So Livi will get to see a private show and actually get to meet the Movers and have her picture taken with them!! We are super excited!!
THEN! Since I hardly ever go ANY WHERE , we are going to stay a few extra days and hang out with my little brother. We are even planning on going to the zoo.
I'm still trying to think of a special pattern to tat while I'm gone. If I don't have a game plan, I'll just be messing around and then not get anything done. I just ordered Maynard's 4 square ring. I saw a picture where someone had tatted one of her patterns. I won't get the book until I get back in town, but I was thinking about starting it. I figured I shouldn't feel too bad about using the other tatters picture as a pattern since I did buy the book for myself... right?
OR I will work on one the doillies from Neibach's Tatted Doilies.
OR choosing one of Koniors patterns that can be connected together and making a bunch of those.
choices choices choices....
I officially ran out of size 40 thread off the cone, but I am planning on taking my size 20 cone and wind some skeins. Don't worry, my size 40 fans, I have a new size 40 cone in the mail on the way to me as I type!
Now, hopefully this is going to work....
I had Livi hold my tablet while I tatted a split ring and a regular ring. However, she was having an interesting day... to say the least. I will work at making another one. (I was also a little tired/ cranky)
Eliz had mentioned that I tat differently than anyone she has seen, so I was wondering if anyone else tats this way:
Just as a note... I do not usually drop my shuttle as much I do in this video, which is the main reason I want to redo it. It is hard to tat with an almost 5 year old leaning on your arm lol I also would not drop my work when getting ready for the split ring.. shift it : yes... completely let go of it... no. :o)
I just looked in Livi's bag... this is what she packed:
A bunch of toys.. and two shuttles
One of which she "blinged" and the other is my new one that I just got from LaCossette
Seriously? Could she be any sweeter???
