moniqueleigh: (My tatting)
[personal profile] moniqueleigh
A couple of years back my mother asked me to tat some snowflakes for her tree. It started out as 36 flakes. I told her there was no way I was going to find time to tat that many by Yule (she made the request in mid-October, IIRC). Since then, there's been general laziness, boredom with white thread, the vagaries of scheduling time (that wasn't already set aside for, oh I dunno, spending with my hubby), trying to sort out a new craft (knitting), etc. So, I think she's gotten 18, maybe 21 of those.

But, of course, every time the subject enters conversation, Mum decides she needs more snowflakes. "Oh, after seeing them on the tree, 36 just won't get the coverage I want. Could you make about 50?" "Oh, let's go for the last 2 digits of your birth year, 72." I'm just waiting for her to decide she needs all 4 digits..... *sigh* Meanwhile, she hasn't even gotten the full original order yet. :/

Edit: The increases are all in good fun. Mum & I have a great relationship & have been known to get quite silly with each other.

But!! I have finished 3 more! Woot! pics behind the cut )

They haven't been blocked or starched yet (obviously), but I'm pretty proud of myself. :)
