Yesterday I got plenty of tatting done, and even some today

Yesterday I finished a cross that I have 
been working on(it's been a challenge, 
mostly all split rings and just a diagram 
to follow).  I LOVE it!!!
It's Katrine from Tatted Bookmarks
cross-shaped by Lene Bjorn.
I am also working on a variation of it,
but the thread broke, so I took a break.
This is tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Royal
 Next, I also finished day 4 of Tat-a-Renda's 14 Day 
Challenge Doily.
And, I did some test tatting and haven't finished yet, 
and I also added 2 more motifs to my tablecloth.
We woke up to 2 inches of snow which fell over-
 It looked wonderful and bright, but by afternoon 
we were back to brown and boring.  :)
Today I have worked on the test tatting again, 
but the thread broke so it's sitting and waiting.
And, I did get day 5 done on the 14 Day Challenge 
Doily by Tat-a-Renda.
I am concerned the HDT won't make it the full 14 
days, so I added size 40 Lizbeth Lilac Dk. 
And, our state has ordered us to stay home now, 
so lots of Bible study, tatting, and in-home walking 
workouts, besides housework will be happening.
I have had to set up a facebook page for our Sunday 
Night Seniors who have internet to keep in touch, 
and I have to record our lessons on cassette tape 
and bring them to them to pass from person to person 
so they can still hear the Bible lessons which they are 
craving now that they have no real contact with anyone 
since their senior apartment complex in lockdown.
So many in tears and it breaks my heart, but I keep 
praying this will end very soon!!!
Happy Tatting everyone!!! :)

The lilac round is perfect in your tat along doily, I think it enhances the variegated thread. It’s very hard on vulnerable members of society, I hope your cassettes and internet contact go some way to helping.

Your doily is looking great! I like the purple. Do you have a darker color of the other HDT colors?
I may run out also. But, since I'm only on round 4, I've time to choose another thread.

God's Kid said...

Thank you picotsnkeys!!! :) No, I don't have a darker shade of that HDT.

The cross reminds me of can-opener tabs! Can you see it, too?
I like the solid around the variegated.
Technology can help stay in touch!
Stay safe and healthy
