I spent the afternoon remaking a choker that was sold and I even remembered to take a picture of something to punch up the boring old blog post. Since it's something I've made before, I just went with the nice, abstract photo so there would be some lace.
Speaking of seeing lace though, twice in the last week, I have spied tatted lace on the television. First as I was watching the season premiere of Hell on Wheels. The preachers daughter, who I suppose it the preacher now, had a large tatted lace collar. Funny that with my exposure to antique patterns, I recognized it easily and it appeared to be of vintage or antique origin itself. I know I've seen that same one in an antique shop myself.
The second sighting was a bit odder. I was watching The Daily Show when the joke was made the John Stewart was mistakenly hosting The Doily Show and behind him was a large image of a tatted doily. I think the last time I saw tatted lace on the television was an annual airing of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, as one of the toys for the island of misfit toys sports a tatted collar. So, weird tatting week then, huh?
I'm done remaking from yesterday, so here's to another morning sale to give me a pleasant afternoon. Otherwise it's spiders, spiders and more spiders.
