Almost Normal

Good morning!
I awoke feeling almost normal!  Other than sneezing a bit, I'm much better.  And I got some tatting done yesterday!!!  See...
There is what I call a foundation round under the interlaced chains that attaches to the Rs previously tatted. I had added layered chains around the perimeter, but was not pleased with the look.  After ripping that out, I decided that I should take an image to show you at least a bit of work.  I'm contemplating what to do next.  This piece is for a dear friend and I want it to be special, just for her.
The Fairy Queen pendant will be finished this weekend & featured in a special blogpost Sunday. 
Jim is taking today off for us to have a date day, so I do not imagine I'll get much tatting done.  I have no idea where we're going or what we're doing.  He said it was a "surprise".  Hmmm... I wonder.
Well, the kid is still snoring and will be late for school if I don't get her up soon.  Have a great weekend and don't forget to check out the blog Sunday afternoon.  Until then~
Happy Tatting!


  1. Looks a lovely pendant, have a nice day ( what is a date day?)
    Have a nice weekend.

  2. I'm always fascinated to see how you weave those chains so artistically. This will be another gorgeous pendant!

    I was so delighted to see your comment on my blog today! You have ceretainly had an influence on me ever since I discovered your blog early last year. After Frivole made me realize that your interlocking rings were possible to do with a shuttle, I spent a good part of the summer trying to master them (I was obsessed!) I certainly appreciated the video by Karen Cabrera! (The tatting community is amazing!) Now I have all kinds of rings, waiting for further embellishment, with interwoven chains!

    I have taken baby steps with those (my post of Sept. 19) and was pleased with the results. I have a long way to go, however! And even though I've been tatting for 22 years, I haven't worked with beads too often.

    Hope you're feeling better! Have a fun 'date day' and a great weekend! I'll be at a weekend tatting event, and will be proudly displaying my new 'interwoven' pendants, thanks to you!
