"But, really, why does anyone create? You feel a... a restlessness inside, a need to make something new, something no one has ever seen before. You want to add to the beauty and the richness of the world with a gift, an offering that is uniquely yours. It's an act of selfishness and generosity, all rolled into one."
-- Bruce Coville, The Last Hunt

I spent the day today tatting at the Duck Pond. I forgot to take the camera, so here are some pictures I took there a couple of years ago, on a day much like today.
I love sitting on this tree and reading a book or tatting. Today, somebody even recognized that I was tatting and got very excited about it! I was still working on my Top Secret Project, so all I can show you is this:
I showed the lady a finished version of whatever this might happen to be, and she oohed and aahed. It was very gratifying. She told me that she had bought some tatting supplies a few years ago but had never learned. Maybe seeing some actual tatting in progress will inspire her to get started.
