The day after...
This year is the first year we didn't take the kids trick-o-treating at Disneyland. My Honey's and my schedule did not permit it. He had the day off, but got called in, so we were forced to change our plans. We went to our local museum and the kids did the safe Halloween walk there.
This morning I spent time cleaning up some shuttle blades. Okay, I semi-cleaned up one. I liked the way the flowers looked in yellow, that I had to try using that ball of "what am I going to do with you" thread on another pair. For small tatting pieces, it seems to work very well. I added a small butterfly to fill up the empty space. I probably should have used a slightly darker solid for them. Or maybe just a solid. The flowers are Mary Konior's buds from Tatting with Visual Patterns book. The butterfly is a generic one I just made up. When the second round of these buds were drying after applying sealant, I ended up spilling some glitter on them. The glitter was meant for another project, but Kat came bursting into the MomCave and the breeze that followed blew the glitter, everywhere. To be honest, I like the results.
