Rainy day

After the last 2 amazing days we have a little rain. Don't worry, I've discovered the magic of pintrest and have lots of pretty things to keep me going. Let me know if you are pining.

My parents cottage isn't anywhere as exciting as Halliburton or muskoka. It's on the Trent river waterway. 30 years ago my father was still farming so he needed to milk cows 2x a day. A cottage needed to be within driving range. It's a little cozy and I wasn't so excited about a cottage as a teenager.

Gone fishing

I'm spending today at the cottage with the family. The weather is beautiful. It's nice to be tatting by the water.

I'm recovering....

Thanks for everyone's sympathy concerning my recent scissor disaster.  Connie had an awesome suggestion.  She carries a large sequin with her and uses it when she cuts thread.  Connie pulls thread through the sequin and the rest of the tatting is protected.  This is an awesome idea!

This morning I did the most annoying thing.  I hid the ends on a pendant I made and cut them off with scissors that were handy.  About 5 minutes later I saw some fuzz on the pendant and went to brush it off only to realise that I managed to cut the top of one double stitch when I cut the ends.  So its ruined.   I hate when you get to the end of a project and something as simple as cutting botches the whole thing.  I would show you a picture of the pendant but I'm still devastated. Sigh.
