Snowflake and Android
the book. Feeling a bit more normal now, and looking forward to seeing the printed book, which is still in queue at the print shop. I'll let you know when it's done - for sure!
Meanwhile, I've discovered that my Android-based smartphone and tablet (mine's a Nook) don't like to download files from a link, such as the download link on Etsy. It's easier to download the file on a computer first, and then transfer to the mobile device, either by usb cable, or simply by emailing the file to yourself, then opening the email attachment and saving it to your device that way. By the way, I discovered that my Nook didn't have Adobe Reader when I tried to view the file. No problem, Adobe Reader is a free app, installs quickly, and displays PDF files perfectly, complete with page index to get to the page you want quickly. I like how the pictures can be zoomed for a closer look and that I can have my patterns with me wherever I happen to be tatting.
I've started on a white and sky blue set using patterns from my new book - the photo below shows my progress so far. And, oh yes, I hand dyed some thread this week! That's the "Snowflake" colorway in the top photo.
For those looking for posts on how the Greater Milwaukee Tatting Guild is doing, they've had their own blog for a while, and you can see the guild posts at http://greatermilwaukeetattingguild.blogspot.com/
