The morning was chock full of shcooling, a doctor's appointment, and the resulting errands. Of course it's always good when the kids' doctor solves one of their issues with a trip to the grocery store instead of a prescription. It was just a yearly check up, but the oldest child was also having some digestive issues. Anyway, it was well after lunch when I got time to sit and work.
Finally I pulled this piece off the board. It's not quite like I had hoped, but it was mostly done correctly. You can tell that I kind of got the gimp thread in the wrong place a few times. I kept resisting the urge to just weave the thing through the finished lace with a needle. I really, really wanted to just do that and honestly I think that could have totally been done.
After that I read through the next section in the book and using larger thread again, I wound my bobbins for the next piece. This one uses a pointed beginning and it did throw me a bit. Honestly I won't really know if I did it right until I get it finished, but it also has new ground to learn, so either way, I guess I will have learned something with this section. I used the larger thread and blew up the pattern just a bit, so I could see the pattern better, let's hope it helps.
The rest of the week is devoid of additional tasks. It's just schooling and lace for me. Of course there's not much week left, so I'll just make do with what I have. Hopefully something interesting happens soon to help me focus back on tatting for a while.
