I've been so focused on finishing my long/short stitched Iris and making atc's for a couple of swaps that I haven't done any of Sharon's TAST stitches this year. It was so enjoyable today to work on a new stitch and have fun trying to make the sailor stitch look like a seahorse. Not great looking results but fun.
I also put a row of sailor stitching along the bottom of this underwater scene. I quite liked this stitch and can see myself using it again. I think it might make a nice edging around an atc and I will try it out on the next one I make.
Cats always want to know what you're up to don't they? I laid these tatted pieces on the floor in front of a large window to get the best light and of course MooShoo had to come over to see what I'm doing and get her paws in the picture.
This week I attempted to tat a 3 leaf clover for St.Patrick's Day and then to keep practicing my double-stitches and picots I tatted the Green Thing in the middle. I also did a few more split rings and tried harder to get my tension even.
We compost as much as possible and that means that the compost pail has to be emptied regularly. I brought my camera along outside and here is my shadow on the way to the compost pile.
I was very glad that I had my camera along as I was able to take this picture of 2 Pine Grosbeaks high up on a frosty poplar tree. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely, lovely day!
