Lot's going on...

So I have been working on my diagramming software. I have diagrammed several patterns already but there isn't a single one that I am truly content with. I guess I am hoping that if I keep practicing that something will "click" and I can go back and change them until I am satisfied. At this rate it is going to take five years to get my tatting book published.
Anyway, I didn't mean for that to sound so negative, it's just that it seems the diagramming is taking longer than the actual designing and that is frustrating to me.

I don't know if anyone has noticed the few changes and additions to this blog. I have started a ceramics blog, and have added some etsy banners. All this to help promote not only my sites but all those other handcrafters and artists out there as well.

I sent my book submission off and I chose the overwhelmingly popular vote of the "B" picture. The book won't be published until Fall 2008 so it will be a long time before I know if I am accepted or rejected.

I have finally purchased some of yarnplayers hand dyed tatting thread and am very excited to receive it in the mail.

My company is leaving today and my hubby is leaving tomorrow. It will again be quiet but lonely around here. I should have plenty of time to work on the plethera of projects I have lined up.

This is a teaser for a new motif that I am working on.

I have noticed the changes, and I think they're great! Even though I'll probably never work with ceramics or any other form of pottery, I don't mind oohing and aahing over any artistic endeavor!

Is your new motif done in yarnplayer's thread?

I haven't received the thread yet. I got the "leafy" color and can't wait to try it out.

I was just looking at "leafy" this morning! I love it! I decided that I need to finish one project with each of the three threads I already have before I but another... then again, maybe not!

You hang in there with the diagramming. I just know you will be chosen. I can't wait to see the new motif.
