I Am Tatting, Honest

Those who follow my blog have probably been thinking that I have not been doing a lot of tatting lately and there is one thing that is really missing from my blog and that is doilies. Well I have been doing a lot of tatting and in fact it has been a doily it is just that for a change instead of showing progress pictures, this time I decided I would wait till it was done before I posted about it and for the first time in my tatting life I have a work in progress that I keep having to put aside to do other projects for. Now this may be normal for most other tatters but for me it is causing great stress. I like to finish one project before starting another and I thought it was bad enough when I had to put aside the doily the first time, at which point I told myself I would get right back to it and finish it, but this is the third time. To make matters worse I am one third of the way done the last row and have had to stop this time to make a baby bonnet and booties. Not a project that will really wait. Well for my own sanity I have decided to change how I am looking at the situation and just think that after doing the baby items I am going to make a large doily really fast.

Don't stress yourself, Clyde. Tatting's fun and nobody's counting how much you get done. PLEASE keep blogging, though. Just to let us all know you're OK.

We will all be excited to see the doily completed and pictures of the baby bonnett and booties please. Listen to Jane. Don't get stressed out. I like your idea of making a big doily really fast!

Thank you Jane and Tattycat I am really working on not letting it stress me out. I also like the idea of making a large doily fast.

They are right Clyde, you can show us the other projects and not having a finished product is not reason for not blogging. This is one way that I use for keeping up on my brother. You also need to remember a quote that I always have loved.

"Don't sweat the petty stuff and don't pet the sweaty stuff."

Enjoy your tatting, the rest of us do.
