Tatting and house update.

I have tatted Yarnplayer's Arches doily before(here: 
 and loved it.  Although, I tatted it in size 40 then and 
now in size 20-Lizbeth Coral Splash and Snow 
White.
Just to let everyone know the white row which looks
bunched does have overlapping under the large rings 
and it happened in the first one I tatted also.
 Next, I tatted Yarnplayer's Snowflake-pattern here:

 I have been working slowly on Ninetta's Treble Tatting 
Stitch and learning!!!  I started with size 40, then 
size 20, and went to the store and got size 3(very 
limited selection-5 solid colors to choose from).
I think it was my best idea!!!  I think my stitches 
are more even and work out much better!!
I have the first and second(small rings which didn't
close well) rows of a trial piece 
tatted and think it looks pretty good.
And, just got done with this snowflake below.

As for the house....frustration is the only word I have!
It's got the cinder blocks under it and a special coating 
on them and now as the picture shows the dirt is all the 
way up to the house.  The inside is not done and things 
have been delayed again, this time by the electric 
company and the contractor.  We were told electric would 
be connected to the house Nov. 1, but were just informed 
that has been changed to Nov. 6 due to the contractor not 
doing his job.  Oh man!!!!  It could be Christmas before 
we get to move in!!!
Hope you are all doing well and having a great day 
and getting your tatting fill!!  :)

I understand your frustration. When our home was delivered, it sat on our property for 13 weeks while we waited for the state of Illinois to approve the house plan. Then it seemed like forever before we were able to move in. The week before Thanksgiving we were approved to move in, and Thanksgiving dinner was served in our new home amid many unpacked boxes. I truly hope you're able to celebrate Thanksgiving in your new home!

You’ve been so patient about this move, I really admire you! You’re chatting as always is lovely thank you for letting me think about that arches doily again I keep meaning to do it. Yours is lovely. And that little snowflake is just adorable. I I look forward to really giving that travel stitch a try when I retire. Yours looks wonderful.

Wow your home is just a tease for you to look at and not get to move in and will the weather hold out for you! Good thing you have your worry knots to go to. And there fantastic too. I love and proud of your treble knots I finally got the hang of it but had to take a class to get it, but you know me I didn't finish it and moved on. I'll be back to it, there are too many cool things to do with the treble stitch๐Ÿ’
