I had a lovely day in the Atelier and front porch yesterday! I figured out the basic counts for the foundation of a new mystery piece and started it. Here is a little peek at the very beginning:
This will be tatted to about 20", then more layers of tatting will be added. I have a way to go! So, what do you think it will be???
The evening brought a very pleasant surprise. My darlin' Jim brought me a couple of gorgeous bronze mum plants! I love mums!!! Especially bronze and white! Mums always make me long for Fall. I'm ready for the cool, crisp Autumn days.
After I potted these beauties, I spent some time straightening up the porch and watering all of the plants. I do believe I'll roll the Valdani thread cart out to the porch and sift through the colors to tat something inspired by my bronze mums this weekend!

Well, I am off to the Atelier for a couple of hours before I have to run errands. Have a great day and a fantastic weekend. Until next week~
