First off, I really want to thank everyone for their comments and words of support yesterday. It really means a lot that you took the time to share them. I know many of you have been through the loss of a pet as well and it helps to not feel alone with it. On to less depressing things now.
I did finish this one piece over the course of the day and it certainly kept my mind occupied. While there are still the afore mentioned issues with the piece, my previous mistakes were not repeated, so I'm calling it a win. I'm a little bummed that I didn't get any orders to force me to get to tatting as well, but I did get the bobbins wound for the next lesson.
So today I've got more bobbin lessons and I need to start thinking about cleaning the house for next weekend. The oldest daughter's birthday is fast approaching and that means a house full of family. I probably won't actually clean, but it'll be on my mind. I'm going to go ahead and cross my fingers for a tatting task again as well. It has to work someday right? Either way I'm going to force myself busy.
