About Celeste

After getting some feedback from some people, it came to my attention that there were some issues with clarity on the Celeste pattern. I wrote in a way that made sense to me, not really thinking about the fact that I tat differently than most people I know. I do apologize for any confusion anyone had.

In the previous version of the pattern, I had labeled everything with two colors. These colors indicated which color of thread was being used to make the stitches, which I labeled simply "shuttle one, shuttle two." [Again, it made sense to me...]

My aunt was kind enough to revise the pattern for me, and rewrite in a way that would be easier to follow. [Thank you!!] Here is the revised edition:

Well, I spent the entire weekend tatting, and have ended up with nothing but a pile of cut ends to show for it. Frustrating. The good news is that I have lots of ideas brewing, from all my experimentation. None of them are what I needed though. Still, the work goes on.

It has been decided that rather than work on my new book idea, we should finish the book we started almost four years ago. "We" being my great aunt and myself. Some of you probably know my aunt by her pen name, Rozella Linden. Needless to say, the book has lots of really cool stuff in it. Very excited that we'll actually be finishing it!

The rest of my weekend consisted of crazyness. Culminated by the house getting hit by lightning [again] and knocking out all our internet and cable service. I'm so thankful that none of our electronics got fried!

I also made a few sales over the weekend on my book. That makes me ridiculously happy. :D Thank you everyone!

That about sums up my weekend. How was yours?
