Today is Day one of Jane's TIAS. Since I am already up to my ears in tatting I have decided to participate. I encourage everyone to give it a go. Jane's patterns are always a delight and she is so generous to share her time and talents with us.
On another note: I will be teaching and vending once again at the 2012 Shuttlebirds Tatting Convention. I am very excited and I always look forward to this annual event.
So why am I to my ears in tatting you may ask? Well, I have had some pretty terrible luck this past year with my computer/s and believe it or not I lost all the work I had put into my fourth tatting book...AGAIN! Yes, for the second time all my work completely lost in yet another catastrophic hard drive failure. I am not going to go into it any further because I am still pretty disgusted.
Moving on, I am now the proud owner of a much needed new computer and I back everything up on not one but TWO external hard drives. I'm even toying with the idea of adding a third external hard drive because I truly have THE worst luck on the planet. So with all that said I am back on the Ol' horse for the third time around, starting from scratch on my "Branching Encapsulation" book, which I hope to have completed by the time Shuttlebirds rolls around in April.
