There. That makes twenty-five. This is an original design made with one strand of Signature pink ombre embroidery thread and one strand of dark pink Gütterman cotton sewing thread. I made sets of three to decorate t-shirts. This purple on white shirt is for a friend of mine whose last day of work is the 31st. Lucky woman! A set of green ones will go on the t-shirt I got my sister for her birthday. This pink set is for my great-aunt to say "thanks" for hosting our annual family party. She'll have to attach them to her own t-shirt, but they should match the one she was wearing yesterday.
Tatting while listening to audio books is what I call relaxation. I get home from work, get dinner out of the way, then park myself in my favorite chair. I pick up my lap desk covered with shuttles, patterns, strings and beads, stick the earbuds in and say, "Checking out!" Nobody bothers me then -- until it's time to go ride the stationary bike, that is.
