You know, I don’t think I ever showed you all pictures of the beautiful tatted mask I made this past summer. It was a present for a friend for her 16th birthday. She was having a masquerade party. Sadly, I couldn’t go because I was away at school at the time, but I wanted to make her a present anyway.

Tatted with a lace-weight alpaca/silk blend (note to self: never tat with fuzzy yarn again!!!)

I got my permit today!! I know, I’m lame. I’m a college-aged kid, I should have my license already, right? Yeah, about that… well I have my permit now. And it felt good driving again today!

The mask I’m working on begins with a medallion and has 2 other partial medallions, so that’s what I’ve been working on today. It’s my first time tatting with beads. I had a bit of retro-tatting to do and I cut several pieces off, but at the end of the day everything is working out 🙂 Oh, and by the way, tatting with a very fibrous thread is much different than tatting with a smooth thread. It’s much harder. But it is ending up softer than my usual tatting.

I’ve been trying to upload those pictures, but my internet is pretty slow. Let’s hope for better luck tomorrow.
