Have you ever had a time when life seemed to keep dealing you one blow after another? Where it seemed that maybe if you could cover your body and mind in pillows maybe the blows wouldn't be quite so HARD. What sort of pillows would you use? Well, my friends, mine would be covered in tatting. Much like this one.

Some people THRIVE in the face of adversity....I tat.
Yes, you heard me right, I tat. I do that soul saving activity second only to prayer and other such spiritual rituals...tatting. Few things are more calming, more peace-giving, or mind-salvaging than the friend I've found in tatting. I thought I'd share the latest thing I've managed to dig out of my tatting closet. It's this pillow I designed and tatted about 15 years ago. I borrowed a motif from a vintage pattern book and designed an edging to complement the frilly motif to go around the pillow. I've taken a close-up of the edging for you to see below.

The latest blow to come about in my life that caused all these philosophical ramblings about pillows and needing cushions and protections was this....
this piece of paper says it all:
This is what the Insurance Inspector stamped on an important piece of paper after coming out to look at my car yesterday. The "collision" happend last week. In the rain...which rendered one of my favorite sayings in times of trial and tribulation completely null and void. That saying is, "Well, it could be worse...it could be raining!" This is usually followed by a cheesy grin flashed in hopes of lightening the mood of whatever disaster is going on...but seeing as both I and the guy involved in the collision were both standing in the rain exchanging insurance info it seemed to be a mute point. At least he was kind, the insurance people were kind. We won't say anymore about my sad car or other happenings because you know what they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words" I'll spare you the "woah is me" story going on in my life right now...just know I could use a few more pillows right now. How about you?
Okay, so enough about that....Let's take one more look at some pretty tatting HEAD-ON (not like my collision which was rear-end...lol)
Well, that's all the tatting I have to share for you here today. I hope you enjoyed crashing over here for a while. And here's hoping you travel safely wherever you may roam today be it by foot, bicycle, automobile, or surfing the internet, or here in Cali...surfing the waves... May no one wipeout today.
Comments and newcomers are always welcome and appreciated. Happy tatting and safe traveling wherever you may go!
