My friend in the craft shop had 2 bags of craft books left at her front door last week, one bag completely tatting!! I now possess Mary Konior's Tatting in Lace, Elgiva Nicolls' Tatting Technique & History, Tatting with Anne Orr and Tatting Designs J&P Coats Book No 380. There was also Rebecca Jones Complete Book of Tatting which was the book I learnt to tat out of, and the Macrame and Tatting book which has the pattern for the big doily I started my blog with and which I still can't find in my house.

So, the weekend just finished I had fun working on different dimensional flower patterns, starting with Lyn's Corsage of Flowers - I made 2 6-petal flowers and 1 5-petal flower. I haven't joined them together yet.

Next I had a go at Lyn's Tudor Rose. But only the outside section as I didn't want to play with the beads.
Today I was expecting a 9am to 9pm working day - didn't know when I would get a chance to do my update.
My 'day' job I arrived half an hour late and left half an hour early, so I will have to work late on Friday to make it up.
The 4pm student arrived at 3:55 while I was still eating lunch. My 5pm student went home from school sick so didn't come. The 6pm has just arrived (at 6:10 - their first lesson).
(Back from tutoring at 7:10) The 7pm student had already cancelled due to a school meeting. 8pm should arrive at 8.
All in all, I'm having a much quieter day than expected.
