Life got in the way

I haven't blogged for the last few weeks because life got in the way.  Each of my two kids has alternated between viruses, respiratory infections, asthma attacks.  One kid got sick one week and the other one got sick the next week, and so it went for most of the month of October.  I have gotten in some tatting, just not a lot of time for blogging.

I thoroughly enjoyed this Fall's TIAS with Sherry.  Here is my little Piccadilly Express:

Motif # 17
I'll finish off the rest of the cars after I get some of my WIPs done.

I have also done some Halloween tatting, though not as much as I wanted to.  Here's a really cute bat I found on Marty's blog here.

Motif # 18
I thought these would be cute to make a Halloween mobile out of, but I ran out of time.  Halloween is almost here.

And I made progress on the Anne Orr doily.  This last round was a bit tedious with all its small rings with just two ds between picots, but the effect is beautiful.  It looks like a string of pearls.

It is puckering a bit around the outside, but I'm hoping the next round will flatten it back out.

  1. Oh, yum. I love the color you used for your train engine. The bat turned out really cute -- if you made a whole bunch of them instead of a Halloween mobile, you could have a BATMOBILE. *snicker*
