"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."

Some Assembly Required...


Right, that's all the tatting done. As I said, the green ones are not really part of the pattern. I adapted them from the pink ones by adding one extra ring and chain along each side, and increasing that extra chain by 2 ds.

I just have to put it all together now. Now, even though I know you all know what it's going to be, you don't know to what use it's going to be put. And because that final use will be part of the assembly, I won't be showing it again until the one person I'm actually not telling gets to see it.

Nearly Done...


Just two more "bits" to tat-- which are not actually part of the pattern, and I may ultimately decide against using them, but right now I think they will be needed. I should be able to get them done tomorrow, and then it will just be a matter of assembly.

Getting there...


Hope it's not too boring looking at the same things over and over.
