I spent the rest of the day catching up with my DVR recordings and working more carefully on a piece than I ever have before. You might have noticed that I'm a bit of a perfectionist, though that trait has waned a bit since parenthood. I don't generally put up with any mistakes in my own work, no loose stitches and all that. There are things I'm generally okay with though. I don't usually bother with front side/back side tatting and if I make a minor stitch count error that doesn't affect the look of a piece, I don't stress on it. This careful tatting has to do with that thing I almost mentioned a few days ago. I'm still not fessing up to what it is, but I'm making something with attention to every detail and not surprisingly it's slower going that usual.
I don't have any tatting tasks planned for today except to continue careful tatting, though the timeline on that is really long, so there's no real rush. It's odd to have today be the last schooling day of the week since yesterday was the first. It makes the whole week feel odd. Well, I'm sure I'll get up to something interesting over the weekend, or something anyway. Yeah, this has been a strange week.
