Very slow tatting

The only tatting to show isn't completed.  As you 
can see it will be another glass covered ornament.
 Ok, now for the lengthy explanation of my lack of 
tatting.  For the past 2 weeks we have been dealing 
with a dear friend in the hospital almost dying.  As 
of yesterday the ventilator and most other machines 
were finally removed and he was able to talk a little 
and as of today he is being moved out of ICU!!  His 
brother and sister-in-law came from Maine to see him 
and thankfully got to talk with him before heading 
home today-we have all been working out the details 
of taking care of his home and such.
Next, last weekend on top of the prior mentioned, 
we had our granddaughter invasion again!!!
It was an extremely busy weekend trying to have 
a little fun in all the chaos.  Our younger granddaughter 
finally received her "heart of Tafiti" necklace from 
the Disney movie Moana, and you can see she loves 
it!!!  :)
 Next, the girls had me make them some earrings in 
between making lots of food for a wedding that 
happened on Sunday after our morning lesson.
The younger granddaughter picked the tiny jingle bells 
and wanted 3 linked together.
 The older wanted a single tiny jingle bell pair.
 The younger chose my size 80 Yarnplayer's Small 
Maple Leaf earrings.
 The older chose small candy cane earrings(these 
are made from the miniature Christmas tree 
decorations).  ;)
 Then the large sequins were spotted and specific 
colors were chosen by each.  This pair by the younger.
And a different set of colors by the older(some how 
I missed taking a picture-too much going on!!!).
They are lightweight and fun!!  
The girls each wore all 3 pairs through out 
 Next activity was to have them decorate the house 
for autumn(cheap and easy).  Our daughter bought 
dollar store packages(2) of autumn colored leaves, 
and we bought 3M brand poster tape which usually 
comes off easy without ruining the walls. 
 Place a little tape on the back and send the child 
off to place wherever(few restrictions of course!).
 So, now the autumn leaves are blowing through the 
house another year.  :)

So, I survived all our normal activities, a friend in 
the hospital in critical care, Sunday morning,
a wedding, and Sunday night.  As of now, I am sick 
with a cold and feeling miserable.  So....everything is 
taking far longer than I want it too, but I have no 
energy left!!  Got to get prepared for another trip to 
the hospital on Saturday, and our normal Sunday 
morning and evening groups!  
Keeping on tatting, and if you would, say a prayer 
for me!  Thank you everyone!!! :)

I hope you feel better soon! It sounds as though life is very busy. Time for tatting will have to wait. Wonderful that your friend is recovering. What fun to decorate with granddaughters, and have them choose earrings.

I hope your cold is getting better, I'm in the same boat hence a very late comment for you.
It's lovely to have grand daughters in your life, hope you enjoyed their visit, and things are getting back to normal

Thank you both very much. I think I am starting to break free from the cold. Things are way behind in getting done, but I am trying to do as much as I can a little at a time! :)
And it was fun with the granddaughters!! :)
