I've seen many blogs where tatters have mislaid patterns, and yes I've done that also. This time though I just can't find a particular ball of cotton, where has it gone? I have started a project and it was one of the colours that was part of a design and now I can't find this particular coloured cotton. I've looked absolutely everywhere, even tidied up whilst searching, which isn't a bad thing. Its strange how tatting and all the equipment that goes with it spreads around the place. I was talking to my sister Jane on Saturday and she said she even gets beads stuck underneath the keys on her computer keyboard! Anyway I've abandoned the project and decided to start something else in the hope that the cotton will turn up when I'm not expecting it.
Meanwhile I am showing you the lovely birthday present I received from my son and his girlfriend in Singapore, with a very distinctive clue to the company that designed them. The tatted earrings are some I made years ago when I was experimenting with my own patterns, before I learnt techniques like SR and SCMRs. They look a little bit like spiders! I don't have pierced ears so they have never been worn, must give them to someone who possibly would like to wear them.
