The Trip

    Well, glad that is over. I had to go to Tampa, Florida for a week on business. A 9 hour drive down, then almost 12 hour days and a 9 hour drive back. Very tiring. I was gone for 6 days. Hotels are not my friend. I took my carousel doily with me to try to get some of it done. I did not get much. I cannot tat on a bed. The chair in the room was not very good for it and the lighting was atrocious. I got off work close to 6 every day and the sun went down by 6:30 or so, so I could not even sit by the window and tat, like I had thought I would be able to do.

    At least the piece is behaving this time around. Since I did the math to figure the rings, it is laying much, much better. This photo is with no blocking at all and the round is going nicely around. It is flat instead of turned up and pulled. I should be able to get it done sooner now that the trip is over. I do have to do a set of earrings for someone, but that won't take long. I will post those when I get them done.

    1. I like it better. Like you had said, it's a heartbreaker to cut it off, but worth it in the long run.

  2. Wonderful to see it lay nicely. I know what you mean I couple times I had to tat in the lobby better chairs and lighting. I did get lots done when someone else drove but looks like you didn't have that option 😦
