I'm Still Tatting!

Honest! Just not Windmills right now. I'm working on something else right now, and I'm pretty excited about it. I just can't share yet. Bummer, I know. Not much else new otherwise. I have to wait until next week to see if my workplace goes on strike or not. There's a strike going on in Alberta that's related to my workplace. I've never faced a strike before so I'm a little concerned. I'm sure it will turn out fine. Anyway, onwards to the tatting. Kinda.

Yeah, I still can't share. I can share the small pile of rejects from the design process however; the finished item changed dramatically from these, so I don't think anyone can guess what it might be. Oh, and I won't confirm or deny any guesses either.

I'm happy to say, that it only took about a week for me to get a working pattern created. Yup, I designed and properly tatted a new design in about a week! I'm very excited about it. Granted, I think having a deadline really helped, I am such a procrastinator. I only have three weeks or so to work on the special project. I did the final tweaks and tatted the in-colour, proper item Sunday while watching a Doctor Who marathon on TV. I still have a ton of photos to take and edit, and I do need to tat a green version of the item too. I gotta incorporate the item into the theme of the project you know. You guys only have to wait a couple weeks.

That's about it for now. Next Monday is Thanksgiving here so hopefully I can get some other tatting done too. Till next time.


  1. Well, you do know how to pique our curiosity, if nothing else. I won't even try to guess, but I'm looking forward to seeing what it is.

    Good luck with the strike. I always support the workers!

  2. You are just making our curiosity worse, I look forward to seeing your design.
    In the meantime happy thanksgiving day, we don't have them in the UK, our next bank holiday will be Christmas now.
    Hope they sort out your work problems and you don't strike, but on the other hand it might give you time to tat.

  3. Don't throw your rejects away! and I wonder does this project have anything to do with the new book you ordered! I just got mine in the mail from Poland! and messed up a few too! :)

  4. New design! Hooray! I can hardly wait to see it. I hope you don't go on strike, getting no salary is painful.

  5. I live in Alberta, but I don't know whose on strike. Good luck with that tatting and your job too. We look forward to seeing what you've done. Your work is always very very nice.
