Catching Up & Picture of TIAS #4 That I Tatted, Motif #16

I have been absent from blogger world for too long. What's my excuse......I don't have enough time in the day to do everything I want to do. LOL! I can barely keep up with all the tatting blogs anymore. Now this is a good thing, that just means more people are blogging about their tatting, which I think is Fantastic!! I get a few minutes here and there and will go directly to the tatting blogs. But once I start looking at one tatting blog, it leads me to another that leads me to another and so on.....

I have been tatting in my long absence, I just haven't had the time to blog about it. I think I have possibly tatted enough motifs that I will surpass my 25 Motif Challenge. I will try to post one or so a day and try to get caught up.

The first thing I want to post is my TIAS #4 that was hosted by Lady Shuttle Maker. (Thank you Sherry for doing this). I had no clue until the end what we were making. This TIAS has been the most challenging for me so far. I have only done block tatting a couple of times, so this was great practice for it. But I think I still need more practice on block tatting. Plus, I never did the front side, back side tatting either, and I will need to work on this also. I enjoyed trying the techniques and will continue to use them. I did have a problem with the Lighthouse though. After I finished, I looked at my Lighthouse and then everyone else's and realized I left out a whole section. So my Lighthouse is shorter than all the others. But that's ok, I like it anyway.

LOL I know just what you mean about "keeping up with the blogs". There are a lot of new bloggers!

Hi Carol, good to hear from you again. I myself am behind in the blogs and blogging, trying to catch up. Course I didn't get a whole LOT of tatting done.
