I recently tatted this Christmas Heart by Anne Bruvold. I didn't see my mistake until nearly the very end. I wanted to tat another before I posted it but that hasn't happened yet. She has a very nice mat designed by combining hearts too so take a look at that when you go for the pattern. This is thread I dyed last May. Unfortunately, I'm forgetting all the details already and I didn't keep notes for that session.
I finished up the Mister and Missus Monkey couple today. As I was sewing the bib for the skirt, it occured to me that the rose button would look nice on the fabric so I put it on there to see. I have more of the fabric so I can always use it for something for me. I've been on a pincushion binge here lately too but none are done enough to show.
The blouse that went under the bib actually seemed a better reflection for the button. I didn't use it though. I did start a pincushion but haven't decided what kind of embroidery I want to do on it. I don't know that I'll put it on there either. Decisions!
Don't they make a cute couple? They'll be winging their way to BC, Canada tomorrow. I feel really bad that I've let it go this long, even if I was the one to offer them.
I've got a PIF (Pay it Forward) to complete too. I have to admit I've been disappointed in the way people have responded to PIF's. I responded to one on Facebook and offered it myself which is part of the acceptance. I'm trying to remember if I ever got anything from the person I responded to. I do know that 2 out of the 3 who responded to mine didn't follow through. I still have the third one to do but I'm not concerned about that one in terms of them following through. I think she's a generous person already.
Well...time change this weekend will hopefully get me back on track. I have a devil of a time adapting to DST. I had trouble with it as a kid and then it went away for decades only to return in the past few years. I've always prided myself on being flexible and adaptive but DST is just not normal to my body. Period. We'll see how I get on tomorrow.
