Best intentions and all that jazz

I thought that this year, since I have kind of cleared the deck and I don't have anything pressing that needs doing, that I might make the attempt to blog every couple of days. For the last little bit I've been blogging about the snowflakes Ive been designing and it's given me a reason to post stuff every few days. It hasn't been all that hard really, since there is lots of bloggy, tatty stuff to talk about. I was wondering why I hadn't been blogging all along and then it hit me.

The reason that there is a clear deck is that the Marvellous Motifs book is done, the Design-Tat group is finished and the senior's tatting class is in hiatus till January 12, 2010.

The new book of snowflakes is about quarter done. 15 designs completed with 9 already drawn. I have plans for a book of 30 designs, so there is one for each day of the month. There will be a new Design-Tat group in the spring and I need a dozen -easy for first time tatters- patterns to create for the senior's group. Then there is the hour or so every day to keep up with the 25 Motif Challenge blog and whatever time out of my schedule hubby needs for me to help out with whatever project he has going on.

I guess that explains why I don't blog regularly. All this "free time" is just the lull between the busy-ness of living. Just in case you're wondering, here's most of the snowflakes so far. I did a few with the rhinestone centres but I'm re-doing them without as well (nothing like doubling up the work).

That should just about keep me hopping until it's time to do the massive bookkeeping job that is doing taxes for running 2 businesses..........I think I need a big bottle of time.

When you blog, I read. When you don't blog, I figure you are busy promoting tatting in different ways... something I don't believe I'd be able to do! I love the picture of all the snowflakes, and I look forward to the book!

So...when is this book coming out? I'm putting it on my wish list AND into my tatting budget! Those are some lovely flakes.

For those who asked; I have 16 designed, and 10 drawn. There's another one on the shuttles and I'm working toward 30. If I can get on a day done, the book might be done as soon as this month, Since I'm still working on the designs to go into the book, it will tak a while yet.

I can't wait to get your Snowflake book when you are finished with it. The snowflakes look so very pretty!
