For once in a long while, things went as planned. I got an order in the morning while I was schooling the kids and so I had a tatting project as soon as we were done. Even better it was something I actually haven't made in awhile, my eye patch. Yes I am aware that it is functionless, but it looks neat and was meant as a decorative, costume piece. It's a fairly quick piece to make, the hardest part is getting it joined to the wire just right. I actually ended up doing a few stitch count changes on it this go around as I was noticing some sections that didn't lay quite as perfectly. It sort of wrecks the easy math of the piece, but it looks better.
I'm hoping to get this piece off the board today and I think I'm confident to move on to the next lesson in the book. I think it was called 'spiders', so that sounds interesting. I'll try to get some tatting in over the weekend though I'm still waiting for that inspiration I asked for. I'm starting to feel the need to create something new again, but I can't do that until I think of something. So here's to my creativity kicking into gear soon.
