Two more leaves! The maple leaf is from Tammy Rodgers diagram. I had the original too but used Tammy's except I added a picot between chain segments at the clovers so that I could join them. Tammy's overlapped and I didn't really want that. On the original, they don't overlap. Next time, I might just make the chains a few stitches shorter there.
The small leaf is from Karey's book, Tatting Turns Over a New Leaf. It's quite easy and fast too so I'll probably make more of those.
I tried Ruth Perry's celtic maple leaf last night but I did something wrong. I knew there was something wrong in the second vein but I couldn't find my mistake so I continued until it was time to outline them all and I gave up at that point. I'll try again on another day. I was really tired last night. I even laid on my floor at work during lunch (on a coat) and napped a few minutes. Today I napped a bit when I came home. Maybe it's the change of seasons. Maybe it's the stress of so many home things going wrong. I don't know. I sleep well. Wide awake tonight!
The past few days I've spent a little time visiting the blogs who left a comment on mine during the OWOH (One World One Heart) event last Spring. I'm surprised at how many stopped blogging since then. Of course, many use it as a way to advertise their craft business and I suspect it hasn't been the most profitable year for many. I'm looking forward to participating again if Lisa continues the event.
I've become addicted to tatting for the dye pot. I've been noting everyone's seahorse dragon and want to tat one. Hmmmm...guess I could do it in ecru. Actually, I was thinking of tatting the loch ness monstor somehow between the seahorse, the dragon and Anne's chinese dragon. I have too much on my plate, I think. Yikes! After 11:00 p.m.! I need to get to bed!
