So, it seems my every good intention to pose more to this blog with the new year has met with 15 days of delay. However in most cases I would leave it at that and put down my good intentions and just let it be, but that’s what I did last year and I barely made a post. So along with eating well, more protein, vitamins and so forth whilst maintaining the foods that I like and being able to make and eat my cake too is the intention to loose at least another 10kg this year. Believe it or not since June last year I have dropped at least 10kg down to where I have been hovering for the last two months, slowly though pants are getting slightly bigger.
I have also tatted more pieces which I have included below.. Firstly this is the finished Folded Bookmark I had mentioned in the previous post.. One of my housemates claimed it already.. heh!
This is one of my first tatted motifs, the pattern is by Lisa C. Trumble I made it in DMC Size 30 Ecru Cebelia over a found button a few months ago. I think I would like to redo this and see what the comparison is.. I will get back to you on that..
I also finished this bookmark by TattyPatty which is called The simple bookmark. Even with that I still managed to add in an extra ring and chain at the start of this (which is where the tails for the bookmark are joined.. I rather like the addition personally :P Though I may be a little biased! It is made with Lizbeth thread in size 20, Wildflowers Colorway
Another TattyPatty pattern is this one, it is a snowflake that she listed in two parts. I wanted to play with these darker colors so maybe its a nightflake? Made with Lizbeth size 40, Charcoal and Blue River Glades
And last in the tatting links is that I decided to join the Tat It And See 2013 that Jane Eborall is holding over at TIAS I have day two to catch up on but it is fun so far, though mine isn’t as straight as other peoples… I think it should be ok.. Again tatting in Lizbeth size 40 Blue River Glades.
The following two are patterns by Jennifer Williams who has some lovely pieces that are both great to learn with and look at!
There are a couple of other pictures up in my stream if you are so inclined.. Well that’s a few things I can tick off my list today.. Along with make bread rolls (these are very easy to vary ingredients, soy milk, buttermilk, raw sugar, plain flour.. herbs etc..), vacuum my floor again.. wash fan seeing as it isn’t a sweltering hot day here… Onto day two of TIAS I go!
