While I was browsing the site, I ran across this intriguing wraparound glove pattern!
Yeah, probably more knitting than I want to do but I love the idea of it so I bought it too. Both publications arrived on the same day, in a clear plastic wrapper like many magazines come in. I got email notices that the publications had been printed and were on their way so communication was good. I like that. BTW, our own Umintsuru is featured on one page in Pat's magazine so if you're into crazy quilting, go get it! No patterns or anything but it's always nice to see a tatter's name in print.
I tatted a few more flutters last night and will be leaving soon to round up packaging for the Blogaversary winners. I've got a cat sleeping on the floor under my desk who is wheezing as much as I am. I thought he was over that so it looks like we both might be visiting the doctor this week. Different doctors, of course. I do feel better but the cough and wheeze is still there. I felt good enough last night to do laundry and put away the beads and thread I'm no longer using. I need to wind bobbins for the next bookmark pattern. Following Karen's progress on Contemporary Embroidery has me itching to get back to my sampler pillow-to-be. Then I saw a teneriffe doily on Jenny's Australian Needleart that I loved as well as the mat she just finished.
There is always a lull after the Christmas holidays as everyone recoups. Even those who plan ahead and have lovely projects to dive into are often set aside until we get our bearings again. Suddenly I'm seeing lots of new inspiration and wonder how I can possibly ever do it all in this lifetime? Oh...and I need to get started on the next figure of Plate I in my 25 motif challenge!
And Happy Birthday to my Little Sister!
