Miss me??? Yes I know I've been very quiet over the last week!! No I haven't been 'on holiday'... that's in a few weeks!! (Sunshine and warmth here we come!!!) No I haven't been ill, and no the computer hasn't been on strike!!! VBG
Well, first off, I think I've learned a new technique.... Daisy Picots!!
What?? You want to see them?? Ooh you are a nosey bunch!!!
There you are!! The middle one was the first, and it took around 2 hours!!! The second one is on the left, that took about 25 minutes.... and the one on the right was last... a whole 10 minutes!!! Think I've learned that technique!!
Why am I making them?? Well, the Ring Of Tatters website is almost up to date!! I'm punch drunk on computer coding and checking, and I've got to the point where I wouldn't see mastikes if they came up and bit me on the b....!!! VBG (Yes, ok.... and no I'm NOT correcting the deliberate one in the last statement!!)Rofl
Anyway, as some of you will know, they're celebrating their 35th year of existence this year!! Yes folks, the Ring has been around for 35 years!! So.... in with the Spring Newsletter we were sent a 'birthday gift'.... a Bracelet Kit!! Complete with 2 different patterns, the thread and the finding!! Not being one for a challenge.... (much), I decided that the 'simple' one was one that could be done whilst on holiday, in different colours maybe, and with beads added maybe.... so I opted for the 'more advanced' one with split rings and what??? Daisy Picots??? Never heard of them!!! So I had to learn!!! The above pic is the result!!! Now to get on with the bracelet!!!
Right, I got me some new 'specs' as well.... special for tatting they are.... want to see??
New 'specs'!!! Pince Nez!!! Rofl.... Look, I'll show you:
Angle!!! Great aren't they?? they're now living in my Tatty Bag!!
What else has been going on.... well.... Li'l Miss has been on a holiday to Barcelona with Mummy and Daddy!!
She loves the sea and the sand....
Yes there is sand on her face!! Sand sticks to suncream!!! She'd been 'copying' Mummy doing Yoga and... face full of sand!! Looks cute though... I think... however I could be 'just a little' biased!!! Rofl
What did I do while they were away?? Apart from all the aforementioned... I fed Kitties!!!
