I finally finished this project. I made two sets of Yarn Player's "Carnival" earrings. One in each of my two sisters' favorite colors. One is late for a birthday, the other early, but who cares! They don't read this so I am posting this now before I mail them off today. You can find the pattern here.

I HAVE to get some HDT soon! My tatting never looks as good in solid colors. Oh, well, it is still fun to tat!

This is a MUST see...

Somebody had a lot of fun . . . actually, two somebodies. Watch this video. At first it might seem normal, even a little boring because you don't know the couple involved. But, trust me, you must keep watching . . . you will understand soon.

Makin' "lace"

We (humans) are not the only species making lace. Found this little guy on a bush in my front yard. I'm actually quite proud of myself, seeing as I am DEATHLY afraid of spiders. My kids got very excited and called this a "writing" spider. (Charlotte's Web?)

Just thought I would share since I can't show my tatting. I am making a mess of things. I am trying to do the mask that is online and following the pattern. But I found a couple of mistakes or something. The pictures and written pattern don't always match. After the second round, the thing is looking pretty haphazard. So I took out the wires for the eyes and am going to finish the pattern up. Then, I will sit down with the written pattern and the tatted mask and figure out where in it I can make some changes (increase or decrease ds) to make it fit the face right/better.
