Checking in...

It's been awhile since I posted. So, I wanted to show you my 'mess'. I'm practicing the crochet join between two edges and will show that another day. But for now, here's the mess I'm living in. The former 'endless edge' is now being referred to as the 'edge without a cause'. Here is the pile.
Not alot to show..just a pile of lace and my comfy club chair. I'm working on the filet panel which is narrower in width than the sampler piece. When I get tired of the continuous chains I switch over to tatting the rings to the top of the original edge. It's going to be pretty. However, it's going to take a pretty long time to see the accomplishments. Funny...looks like pink and purple are my favorite colors....not really, just happen to be the shuttle and container of the moment. Favorites are blue and green. I'll show you a bit of the tat days loot. I've been hiding my, here's the damage from the 'market' as well as the silent auction.
*Spoken amid sobbing and catharsis.....* "Hello, my name is John and I'm addicted to tatting" and the crowd responds..."Hello John"


  1. .... much clapping, intense applause ..... " Hello, John! Welcome!"........

  2. You are incredibly patient. I have a hard time sticking with one hanky edging before I'm off to tat something else!

    Do we need to start an online 12-step program for tatting addiction? Nah, I don't want to recover!

  3. Hello John!

    Love seeing your loot! And even your "mess" is tidy, compared to some. "A pile of lace" is actually quite a lot to show.

  4. Thanks for checking in! I have been thinking of you and brownies.... now I will add blues and greens to this mix of thinking! I like greens myself!

    Your tattings make me smile!

  5. What a lovely pile of lace. Thank you for showing it.
    Did you go to the big 'do' Uptown today? Did you see Marsalis in concert?

  6. I'm not just the president, I'm a customer too!

    I'm an addict.....

  7. I'm drooling over your thread......!
    Love that pile of lace.

  8. Love the pile of lace, looks like a place the same as any other tatters, thread, shuttles, etc on the table beside your chair.
    I love your pile of thread, only tatters get excited about thread and are addicts to thread.
    I am sure you will find some lovely patterns for your thread.
