What I'm doing

I'm in between big projects at the moment (and I can't type right now - that came out "bewtenn" and "tje" for "the").   I'm working on a 100 Things post.  And I'm tatting a cross for a friend of the family who's lost a brother.

I got on the train the morning with an empty shuttle and a ball of Lizbeth.  The train sat at the station for a bit (I get on at the end of the line) so I had time to wind my shuttle and get started.

Here's what I did this morning when I could get a seat on the train.  (It's hard to tat on the platform if the train will be there in less than 2 minutes.)  As you can see, I use the floss threaders for MTT.  This will be Mary Konior's Large Cross from Tatting with Visual Patterns.  It's done in Lizbeth Caribbean, size 20.  I really like this thread color - it's cheerful.

And this is cheery too.

Roses as shrubbery in front of my office.  I love the masses of color.  There are red ones as well...

I feel like a sleep walker today.  I've been feeling this way since the pollen came on full force - and I use Claritin so I'm not miserable.  But I feel pretty whiped out, especially in the mornings.  I can barely drag myself out of bed.  It doesn't help that I am not a morning person.  (DH is, and he doesn't understand how I can still stay in bed when he bounds up.)  Plus, I watched Glee last night (Squee!) and then had some Curly issues, which riled up the household and me.  So I didn't go to bed until after Letterman had started.

Right now all I want to do is put my head down on my desk and sleep.  Zzzzzz...

To wake up, I'm doing some NOT WORK items (I'm on a conference call even as I type - I can multitask!).  Moe loved this link on Gummi Bear surgery.  And I loved this fun item for kitties...

And now I have to go to an actual, face to face meeting.  Darn.  I think I have some caffeine to wake me up.



  1. The gummi bear surgery is wicked!

  2. Cant wait to see it finished!! By the way where do you buy the floss threaders?
