No tatting. Feel free not to read.

I wish that I could post fabulous pictures showing you all the wonderful things I've done in my absence. But alas, I have done nothing.

Well, I've done a lot. But nothing related to tatting. In fact, I haven't picked up a shuttle in a couple months. We all have mental blocks, and that's what I've been experiencing. Usually it doesn't last this long, and more often than not it's solved by simply making something. Speaking of which, I should probably try to make something.

Anyway, here's why I haven't blogged. This is a tatting blog. Not a complaining blog, political blog, general craft blog, gossip blog, etc. If I don't have any tatting to show, there's no point in my posting and wasting anyone's time. It seems that some people have legitimately worried, so I'm sorry about that! All is well. I'm thankful for the people who have taken the time to read my blog from time to time.

Oh and did you know I have almost 17,000 views on a "How to Tat" video? What in the world. That's pretty cool. But someone commented that I tat in a weird way or something. Is that not how you're supposed to do it...? People seemed to find it helpful.


Here are some photos of un-tatting things that I've done in the past couple months.

 Spent way too much time with sequins.
 Again. Way too much time.
 Felted something for the first time. Terrible photo. But its a lot more awesome than I thought it would be.
 Started getting REALLY into embroidering. Seriously. I could start a blog just for that. But I think I might refrain.
 Made a baby.... Out of clay. Not bad! I might enjoy giving that another shot. Sculpting is fun.
 Had a hair DISASTER. Oh my goodness. I can't even tell you. Let's just say I have to put a lot more thought into my appearance now to make sure people still know I'm a girl. Also, I don't wear those hoops all the time. Just wanted to let you know!
 Took a family portrait with my newest love: the cello. The easiest instrument I've ever learned to play. And it looks like a mommy violin. That's pretty cute!
I'm sure I put this is my last post. But yeah. Bunny. SO CUTE. I can't stop looking it this.

Alright. There you have it. Sorry again for my absence. I'll formally warn you that I won't be posting until I DO have some tatting for you!

Thank you for reading!
