I tatted mine in two colors. My tension was a bit on the tight side and it is not wanting to lay completely flat, but I love how it turned out. It’s a perfect thing to tat with Valentine’s Day approaching. Enjoy a heart and rose for yourself or share it with a loved one.

P.S. Sorry for the long absence. My computer is acting up (using hubby’s laptop). I took on new responsibilities at my newer job (hooray for teaching a few classes in addition to tutoring!). My husband sent me on a trip to see my sister and enjoy a weekend of fantastically geeky music (I even had the opportunity to perform on stage – singing and playing my guitar!). I think I am finally getting a handle on the new schedule – so you should hear back from me on a regular basis and in the future, I promise to give warning before disappearing for so long.  Happy Tatting!

I was trying to figure out what to tat as the first challenge of 2014. I went back and forth between snowflakes, various animals, and all sorts of amazing designs by many different designers. Finally, I decided that music was the way to go. I love celebrating with music! Music plays a big role in both my memories and how I prepare for things to come. So I hope you enjoy a New Year full of music, laughter, and loved ones!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

I’m currently on a snowflake kick for my tree and this one is a lot of fun! However, I’ve miscalculated the amount of time it takes me to add beads to a picot before a join. Thus, you get to enjoy an in-progress shot. I will upload my completed snowflake when it is finished and I look forward to seeing yours!
