Today at work I lost my JMD project. To add salt to the wounds, I lost two of my Rita's shuttles. The clear acrylic one I wasn't as upset about, this one I can replace easily enough. It was the shell one that broke my heart to say goodbye to. I clearly remember setting it down on a lower counter shelf prior to assisting a customer, along with my cellphone. The cellphone was still there, my tatting was not. I retraced my steps as best I could before having to leave but no luck.
I'm not even upset about the actual tatting being lost. I spent hours tatting and retro-tatting it, going on a mission took find thread to continue working it, but in the end it didn't mean as much. If by some lucky chance it reappears tomorrow when I go back, I will only work on it at home. This makes three shuttles lost at work since I switched positions this year. From now on, only Clovers or Starlites go with me, these I can quickly replace the same day.
R.I.P. my tatting buddies...fear not, your descendents will be treated with much more care in the future. 😉
My Honey says I'm being overly dramatic. I am a woman of course I'm overly dramatic it makes life more interesting..lol
