I actually had a much busier weekend than I had anticipated. Sure there was still the cleaning and the family adventuring, but since it was hotter than it had any right to be we spent a great deal of time at home, in our air conditioned cave. More time at home, meant more time for tatting.
I wasn't finished after this though. There's a vintage pattern for a
handkerchief edging with a great corner that I've adapted before, but I was never in love with the way it turned out. So this time I decided to throw out much more of the original design and work up the sides myself. I changed all the stitch counts, added new elements and this is the prototype I came up with on Friday.
Aside from all the new tatting, I was lucky to get a few sales over the weekend, though I did just wake up to one of them cancelled, so that's a bummer. Remaking the sold pieces kept me busy for the rest of my cave time. Well that and forcing the children to watch all the Back To The Future movies. They'll tell you they didn't like them, but they didn't leave the room.
So today I really don't have anything on the schedule that needs doing. The predicted temp for today is 111º so leaving the house is definitely not on the list. I'm sure I'll think of something to make as my brain has been working pretty good lately. I feel creative and productive and like I'm not wasting the summer. Here's to more days like these.
