Friday

I really have no idea how we ended up here on Friday. Seriously, where did this week go? I only managed to accomplish half of what I set out to do this week. My pile of tatting is complete, save for a bit of hardware and now I await further instructions. The watch that I was so happy to finish has me perplexed as I woke up to it not keeping time...so I will have to remake it with a different watch face. I can't have a broken watch sent off to a customer. Hopefully this was the only bad face in the bunch.

I did want to show one of the things I made in the previously mentioned pile of tatting. I did up another 'Such A Sad Love' mask, this time in ivory. I actually modified the pattern a bit this go around and though it might be a small difference, it made it work up faster, lay better and I think I like the increase in negative space. I also added fresh water pearls to the ends and I had acquired a proper beading needle before I started this one, so the beads are actually counted and I put them on last instead of first. Even will all the extra embroidery work, I think this one is sailing to the top of my favorite masks.

So, I guess this morning is a rush to make a new watch so I can still get it in the mail today. Then I can get back to remaking a few necklaces that have recently sold. Then hopefully I'll have a bit of downtime over the weekend because that box of new supplies has been calling my name for days. I sold a few of my one of a kind pieces not too long ago and I really want to replace them with something else interesting, but so far January has not been the mecca of creative downtime I had anticipated. Not that I am really complaining, busy works too, but I had plans that shall now have to wait.

The ivory mask is lovely! I think freshwater pearls make everything more elegant.

Your mask and watch are lovely. I'm sure this is too late and that you probably already thought of this--can you not just replace the inside of the watch without having to tat a whole new one.
