Sophia loves Frozen! I think she looks adorable in her new Elsa dress!
Despite my aversion to split rings, I started Jane's TIAS today. The first two split rings are terrible. The core thread twisted and I couldn't close the ring completely. However, the third split ring worked just fine. I guess that goes to show that I need to practice split rings on a more regular basis.
Today was a last minute sub day. Still, I managed to tat two Ice Drops. These are the new version. They do look nice and clean, but I think I'm ready to go back to my other version!
When I first started working on Ice Drops over a year ago, this is the look I was going for. It took me almost a year to figure out how the leave off the extra chain around the center bead, despite the fact that other wonderful tatters figured it out and gave instructions. I can be a bit thick at times. I do like this look, but the funny thing is that I've become quite fond of those chains around the center. I can add beads, picots, or leave them plain.
My shuttles are wound, and I am ready for Jane Eborall's 2018 TIAS. I've only completed two of them, but I've started them all. My favorite was the scissors. I do have all of them printed out, so maybe I'll finish them all some day!
Today's Ice Drop is in size 20 Lizbeth Arctic Waters. With the crackled glass gem, this one reminds me of Frozen, just like the one I tatted yesterday!
I'm a retired elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to seven. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. Now that I'm retired, I know I'll never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
