So many projects, so little time...

It happened again.  I got distracted.  I saw a shiny pretty thing, and moved on to a new project (or three) before finishing the old.  Oh well. :)

The trim on the venetian skirt is looking KICK-ASS!  I got one row completely tatted and sewed, and a second is tatted and waiting to be attached.  I'm still debating the third row.  It'd look amazing, but, as mentioned above, I tend to get distracted...

Currently, I'm working on tatting the edging to a hankie.  I started with a much harder design (the same one I'm using on the venetian skirt) but when you're using teeny weeny thread instead of yarn, it takes a lot longer, and mistakes are much more difficult to fix.  So, I went back to an older pattern that I like better, and is tatting up much faster.

This isn't completed yet, of course, but it's a small project that fits well in my purse.  I can do it on breaks at work, and it doesn't take much time away from other projects.
