Dump trucks and digging machines are the sounds of summer this year. I sure hope the UPS man finds a way to deliver the box of white tatting thread that I ordered from Handy Hands, or I won't be able to continue my hand dyeing business on Etsy! I'm totally out of thread! Yes, I know I should have ordered before the supply got so low, but all of my focus previous to this point was on preparing for the class that I was teaching in Colorado the 3rd week of June.
The class seemed to go pretty well, even though I had a lot of projects to demonstrate and many topics to try to remember. You'll find out more about what I was doing in that class in a few weeks - spoilers! ;-)
Since that's now behind me, I've started experimenting again, to try to come up with a new design. Photo at left shows I haven't done much. The way my brain works, I have to tat a pile of messes before something with possibility appears. Then, I go from there.
I plan to try to submit an intermediate tatting class besides a basic tatting class to Bead&Button Show for next year. The projects, including patterns, are due by mid-August! They expect projects to be astounding, so we'll see if I can come up with anything that would be accepted.
