How long is long enough?

With shuttles firmly back in hand, I'm back to tatting.  This is an edging I started a while back.  I was thinking of making a border for a skirt, but I realize now that I don't have the patience.  So now I'm planning to put it on a bag.

The question now is how long should it be? I think I'll just empty the shuttles and call that long enough.

I can tat

It took a bit of time to reactivate the muscle memory, but thankfully, I can still tat. The pattern is the "Nouveau" bracelet by Marilee Rockley The thread is some HDT made by fellow Malaysian, Zarina.

I had some extra yarn from making the pony, so I made a heart too.  The pattern is from heidibears.

I finished my crochet project. It's a little flower pony from a design by Heidi Bears.

The pony came out so nicely, I felt confident about starting new project.  I picked up the tatting shuttles and started a bracelet.  After spending too much time trying to find the right thread and beads, this is the mess I made of things.

Looks like I'll have to do a bit of relearning before I can tat successfully again.

Playing catch up

Yay, my new banner is up!  The banner was designed by my little lady.  Doesn't it look cheerful!

It's taken me quite a while to clear up the projects on my table.  I've got two shirts and a dress made.

A bunch of bags are done.

I finished two amigurumi.

I even took care of the Math corrections.  Unfortunately my desk is still as messy as ever, with one crochet project and cut out pieces for about half a dozen bags.  Sigh, it seems that I'm just fated to have a messy desk.
