Some actual tatting to show today. It's not done yet and I'm not going to tell y'all what is it. This is the first time in a week that I've held a shuttle. You see, I was just walking along minding my own business when out of nowhere I pulled a muscle in lower back across my left hip. In all honesty, I can say I've never felt anything like that before. The pain kind of took its time to hit, but when it did, Owww, owww, owww! Then a wave of nausea washed over me and I nearly fainted. That's really saying something for me, because I have an extremely high tolerance for pain. For the next two days, I kept having spasms and couldn't sit or stand up straight. Ice packs and really good prescription painkillers were the order of the day. Since I couldn't sit up, I couldn't tat, but I could crochet. Nothing to show on that front right now. Maybe later.
Now that I can sit up, I can tat! This is it so far. By the weekend, it should be complete and ready to display. I'll say this much about where the pattern originates-- it's German.
