I'm starting my book tatting with Teri Dusenbury's Tatting Hearts book. The first few were made with size 40 Lizabeth thread.

Also for fun since spring is near, I began Renuelk's Snowflake Doily. I thought to do it in flower colors, and I'm happy with the current results. The problem I'm having now is deciding on what color to do the next row with. I think this pattern would be fun to do in all seasonal colors. Light blues and greys for winter, different yellows and dark blues for summer, and dark browns and red and oranges for fall.
I am working on the year long Jan book project. Mostly while at work on my breaks. The first doily from Jan's book is being done in size 20 mocha and ecru Lizabeth thread.
I've been recovering from alot of back issues and the pain associated with it. I try to rest (sleep) as much as possible. I've missed out a lot from all of Tatland. I have over 200 bloggerish posts to read up on. One that stood out and couldn't be ignored is what has happened to Crazy Mom. My heart and prayers to her and her family. Another is Jane Eborall's Tat It And See. I'm going to download the released portions tonight. I hope to get caught up soon. Not just my tatting but also my shuttle making crafting is something I need to get caught up on. Mostly I've been playing my Pokemon X game and while it is fun, after an hour of that, I fall asleep. I actually play it at night when I can't seem to sleep, just so I can.
