Farmguy was able to finish the combining last week, so we took a few days vacation and went hunting with some good friends.
It took about 10 hrs + driving time to get to SW Nebraska.
I don't bird hunt, my job was to do the cooking for 8 adults and 1 near teen. I was in charge of the evening meal and helped with getting breakfast done at 4:15 am. Noon meal was eaten out in the field.
While the hunters and the dogs did their thing, I stayed at the campers and tatted.
A week or so ago, I participated in a riddle game on Facebook. If I got the answer to the riddle wrong, I was to change my profile picture to a Giraffe. Well, I got the answer wrong. The Giraffe picture I used was from Jane Eborall's Tatted Giraffe pattern.
I filled 2 Aerlit bobbins with about 11 yards on each.
Anyway.. once I finished, I decided to see how far the thread left on the bobbins would go so I tatted another Bookworm
I did some more tatting on the drive home..
I had started this Merriment Doily by Jon Yusoff a while back, but hadn't taken the time to finish the 8th repeat.
Jess! Foster's Kaleidoscope Bright size 40. I have Kaleidoscope Light as well and will do a coordinating pair.
I then started the Clover Leaf Doily by Linda Davies. The links to her patterns are in the right hand column. I was able to get the 1st round and half of the 2nd round before I had to stop.
The thread is possibly an HDT by Zarina called Orchid Garden size 20 however, I have lost the label so don't know for sure. The solid I am using for the chains is Lizabeth Olive Dk size 20.
Now I have to finish some snowflakes that are promised, I don't carry beads and findings with me on trips. Too easy to drop them so I only work with them when I am at home. So I didn't take them with me.
