I've been tatting with the rest of that Lizabeth thread from the last post. It keeps snapping on me. Not to say it's a bad quality thread line, it's generally not, but this particular color...if it snapped at me anymore it would need a group of backup singers wearing leather jackets. I'm halfway through the pinapple doily and I would like to finish it, but I'm going to have to start over with another thread. I just can't take hiding those start over threads anymore.
I found a copy of Christmas Angels and other Patterns by Monica Hahn while out and about. I'm going to make those patterns as my holiday tatting for my coworkers this year. It seems like a lot of nice quick tats to relax with.
An update for those wanting my shuttles. There's about 8 nearing the final coatings that should be ready to list this Friday. These are the smaller hearts style. I leave you a teaser photo. One with flash and the other no flash. The colors are mostly in blues with a clear one in there somewhere. I'm working on a batch of purples next, then maybe some reds or greens.

Where have I been? Lost, sort of. I've been gobbled up by IRL (in real life) work drama that has stolen away most of my time that as I catch my breath, I finally realize we are into the second week of the month already. I can hardly believe it. My shuttles have laid silent but my resin is pouring. I finally have a working permanent moldel for the extended hearts shuttle so those will be going into production REALLY soon. I've also remade the molds for the smaller hearts shuttle and have another skinny style for small tats that don't need a lot of thread, in the works.
I'm going through all my patterns trying to find a simple but stunning 12 points pattern to make a clock out of. I picked up all the supplies needed, I just need a pattern. I have a lot of blog reading to catch up on..its my favorite type of reading. ^_^
I do have a pineapple doily in progress to show you...
