No new tatting to show, not even a continuation of one. I did go and spend the day yesterday at a pizza/gaming place. Mostly so I could wear my son out. Even though I was sitting during this trip I was worn out and ready for a nap myself two hours later, we spent almost 5 hours there. I did blow off steam and feel much better even if my body says otherwise..lol..
I was looking through my many files of tatted animals to make for the county fair and decided on which frog, and dog to make. I am debating on the cat, I am wanting to re-do the 3d kitty modified from Jane Eborall's pattern, in the size 10 thread. But then I will have to find the right size styrofoam ball. As for the cow, Sherry had posted a cow from a tatting book she made for her fair and I'm thinking of ordering that book and doing it as well. It is a very good representation of a cow, the best I've seen so far.
I was online searching for pictures of the beer can I'm gonna have to design and tat as well as a margarita glass, but I did start on making that mask of Totusmel. I tried with some Lizabeth thread but the colors were too bright to work.Then I started again with a different batch of Lizabeth in a more subdued shade of the required colors, and I think it gives it a antiquish look. Okay I really want to say washed or worn out, but hey after a good night of partying isn't that how you feel? All of this week will consist of nothing but tatting. Then next week I think I'll go back and work on that cross stitch pattern of my son I began last month.
We did start a trial version on Netflix for the Xbox, but my husband had them send a disk so we can get it on the Wii. I guess he didn't want to give up his game nights so I can be entertained. I can watch it on my computer but I told myself the less distractions the better. So far the movie choices are not what I'd be interested in but they do have a larger variety on the disks the mail, so we'll see how it goes.
