Yesterday slowed down a bit for me. In fact I even had some time in the evening to work on the Armenian lace. Not enough time to finish a round or anything, but a little time. This is the prototype hair piece I worked up yesterday. It's been shared with the potential customer, but I haven't heard back about it yet. The challenge with this piece was to alter my existing design to be an inch wider. My first thought was to add an entire new round, but in the end I left it to strategic stitch count increases. It took two complete prototypes to get to not only the right size, but also the right degree of curve. I do hope to hear back from the customer soon, otherwise it was just a day of practice tatting since I've no other reason to simple alter the size of the piece.

I still do have a couple of pieces I could remake for the shop, but I'm stalling on them a bit. I'm not entirely sure why, maybe I tatted just a tad too much over the last few days and I need a little break. I'm not certain, but I'll try to get to them today. Well, that or I'll ignore them, obsessively check my email all day and knot on the Armenian lace in short,  unpredictable bursts. I bet you can guess which one I think I'll be doing today.
