"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."

Day 2

I knew I'd have to give up on the unicycle theory pretty quickly. What we are tatting is clearly a bat. The button is the body, and this is a wing we're working on now. And a colorful flock of bats they will be, too!

And here's the doily with the round I showed yesterday all finished.

I'll give it a good going over with the iron before I start the final round. This will happen sometime soon, but there's just one other little thing I want to tat first.
