I made some minor changes in the appearance. I also know what it is that I really want to do when I have more time to play around. I want that stuff in the "sidebar" to be in the "wrapper" which is what I see as the real sidebar. It just seems a tad bit fussy here, but I'll get there eventually.

Wow....there are MORE tatting blogs! When I saw Celtic Tatter had some links that I didn't, I went searching....so make sure you check them out. I also added The Toymaker's website and blog - she is so creative. She's written The Return of Doctor DragonWagon, a delightful children's story which you can read online.

Heidi Nakayama has created this site in tribute to and aboutDora Young,who developed knotless tatting. I was priveleged to view much of Dora's collection of tatting when I attended a workshop in Thompson Falls, MT.

Bina Madden recently sent me a website featuring some paperfolding and card instructions. The Iris Folding project looks just like the twisted log cabin quilt I'm making for my middle son.

I skipped a coworker's wienie roast this evening. I really wanted to go but after my lace group this morning I came home, fully intending to get ready to go there....but after I caught up on a few other things, I knew I really was too tired so I took a nap - and in the end decided to stay home and take care of more pressing needs......like this. LOL! Really - I'm off to to find the surface of my kitchen table shortly. I've been cleaning out my email - hence the abundance of links.

Four of my lace group members attended the I.O.L.I. convention and 2 were present to let us know how it went. They said it was superb. Unfortunately, I didn't think to bring my camera but Chris had her bobbinlace project complete, though still on the pillow, for us to see. She also had books and pictures and brochures and some lovely Chantilly lace she brought back from her travels to England and France this summer. We had 2 new members...and I'm hoping to add even more as the year progresses.

I'm currently crocheting the 2nd square of the sachet pillow from the last entry. I haven't had any time at all this past week. I was looking longingly at my hatband in progress this morning. It's been so long, I've forgotten the pattern and will have to look it up. I was to the point where I knew it by heart before I got so damned busy.

My yard needs mowing too....tomorrow.

I need furniture. I have one chair in my living room. I have 6 chairs in my garage waiting to be refinished.

I'm still looking for airfare to Australia and considering the price of fuel these days, I better do it instead of waiting for the good price. Doesn't look like it's going to get better.

I have the paint for my bathroom but no time to do it. LOL!

Okay...away from here!
