I spent the morning finishing up Josephine chains and most of the rest of the day remaking a mask. I could probably stop writing right there as that was truly the bulk of the day. Most of the masks I make take at least a full day to make. There are a couple that take longer, but only one I can finish and still have time to do more things and luckily that was the one I was working on yesterday.

It was pretty late in the afternoon when I finished so I was only able to get a few motifs made for the other piece in queue, my lace maille necklace. So I thought I'd take a picture of those to liven up what is obviously a very event free post.

I'll be working on this necklace likely all day today. The motifs are easy, but there are over two dozen of them to make and then I get to sew on the swarovski crystals. Finally I join them all together with jump rings. Last time I remade this I didn't have a picture of the whole configuration. I lacked an image of the part that goes around back so it took way too long to figure out how I did it the first time. This time I remembered to take a photo of the one going out to it's owner laid flat. You'd think I'd be more vigilant with photos since it's clear that I'll never start writing patterns out as I create them, but I'm not.

I'm hoping for a nice weekend with the family, some friends and maybe another sale, or idea, or project so my Monday post won't bore you to death like this one probably did.

Love your needle tatting! I've finally figured out how to do the split chain tatting.
