Not too much tatting has been occurring. We are moved and slowly getting everything settled. Trying to move a family and a consulting business with deadlines occurring while you are moving is not the best of ideas :) The kitten loved the ramp on the moving truck. I think that she is ready to move again, but I'm certainly not.
Due to the move, I missed out on signing up for the InTatter's exchange, but I was glad to find out that I made the deadline for the Tatting Forum exchange. Now to figure out where the craft stores are here!!
While preparing for the move I tatted Agasunset's lace panties to give as a gift since I could remember the pattern and didn't have to concentrate too hard. It was easy to tat, but a lot of end to hide. Make sure and check out her blog if you haven't--she has a beautiful ring to give away.
I also found this to house my tatting. I really like it because it is very portable and the kitten doesn't know how to open it yet.
If all goes well, I will have some finished letters to show you soon and get your opinion. It was supposed to be ready for a bridal shower in a week, but I'm going to send a picture of what I have finished.
I have finished my 25 motifs and plan to continue with 25 more!!

This is probably the last post until sometime after moving, but I just had to share with people who could sympathize. I thought that I was being so careful to pack things to tat with, but I accidentally packed my tatting needles!!! I kept out thread, but packed the needle by accident.

So what do you think, does the C need pieces coming down (hopefully you can figure out what I mean)? They letters really need to be blocked, but that is for after the move!
I have a bit more tatting to post. It might or might not happen until after the move. We will be moving 1000 miles next weekend so life is a bit crazy. It should be rather eventful since the kitten doesn't like the car for longer than 2 hours.
