I found all my tatting stuff! All the WIPs and everything. I finally organized my tatting tools in one place, in a candy box my mom gave me. :-) I have a small multi tool, pencil, picot guide, and my chatelaine.

I finished this little bookmark. It’s supposed to be straight, haha, but it could make a nice barrette. It was a practice project for tension, and only one heart (on the right) is the right tension.

I started this little shamrock too! It is one of the first patterns I attemtped when I got into tatting, and now I am confident I can make it. I’m thinking of putting it on card stock, with a hand written poem around it. I was thinking of this one:

“May you have warm words on a cold evening,

a full moon on a dark night*,

and the road downhill all the way to your door.”

That will look nice. :-)

The other tatting I really want to finish (finally) is this square doily. Oof. Another exercise in patience and tension! Blocking will help a lot. I love the colorway. I have this row and one more to finish.

Hey that one has a clover motif too! I’m right on schedule with the holiday themes!

I’m still trying to do one or two projects at a time to get things finished. I’m working on whatever interests me at the time, too, which is a lot easier.

We don’t have any big plans today. Mostly we want to sit around and relax.

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you get to do something you like¬†with someone you like.

P.S. When you hover your mouse over the rav logo, it turns into a heart today. :)
