Pit stop

No fair entries for me this year. I procrastinated again and missed the deadline. Actually, I spent the better half of my day trying to submit my entries and pay the fees online. It was a nightmare, I kept getting messages that it was processing, then it would freeze. I checked my account, I didn't get multiple charges at least for all the attempts to enter. I'm still determined to finish this piece. I found a frame that I plan to mount it in.

After that frustrating fiasco, I went in for some therapy tatting. I pulled out the wedding mat for my future sister-in-law. The difference in the way the thread feels threw me for a loop. Compared to the metallic, the Lizabeth thread felt like silk!

I was once again going for a little ends as I could manage. It had been so long since I've worked on this, that I forgot where in the pattern I had left off. After staring at the picture, I finally was able to get back on track. This pattern is working up so much easier than the Fantasia Spider. Yes, this is another of Teri Dusenbury's CGI patterns. Here's the link to her Pintrest page. It's a bunch of the Heart O'Daisy motifs joined together to make up four leaf clovers joined together to make a mat. Phew, that was a mouthful.

I made some resin shuttles and have them listed for sale in my Etsy shop. I realized that I never really post when I have them for sale on my blogger. I am on Facebook a lot and usually forget to post here. I was debating for a while whether to keep them or let them go. It was a harder decision to make than I planned on.
