I'm a Knotty Girl.

I am bad.  Bad at keeping up with this blog.  It seems when one big thing gets finished (namely, CPA achievement - that's right! licensed in PA as of May 15, 2012!) I start two different big things to take its place.  Those two things being kitchen remodel (going on three months now) and craft show season (two shows down, two to go).  

One big thing is enough. 
Two are bordering on unmanageable. 
And blog falls to the bottom of the "to-do" list.

But I am tatting!  See - my hands know it!


Yes, that's me in the Arthritis glove in 90 degree weather reading my favorite publication.  My hands ache.  I am really trying to take better care of them by not tatting for 8 hours in a row anymore.  Yes, I'm a knotty girl!

This is Yarnplayer's pattern and thread - "Unfolding Heart" in "Grey Crimson".  Yarnplayer, you can make more of this thread anytime you want...oh and "Garden Afternoon" too! ;-)

I'll try to keep up with the blog a little better this fall.

Nice to hear from you

Congratulations! If I still lived in Pennsylvania, I'd run right over with all my accounting stuff.

I hope you have time to tat for enjoyment. Careful with those hands!

Gorgeous color way! Beautiful tatting! I especially like how you've made the "chain", the combination of components is lovely!

Was so glad to see this update, and I was pleased to see that you've kept up with some shows, although I can't believe you have the time, with everything else going on! Your show schedule wasn't updated, so i thought you took time off this year!

Better take care of those wrists! Beautiful necklace and thread!
