I know I have a problem, but I just can't stop. I used to tell myself, "I can quit anytime I want". Listen, we all know that addicts everywhere tell themselves this as a deceptive coping mechanism to comfort themselves...a way of lulling themselves further into denial.
Ahhh, the sweet, ignorant bliss of denial.
I need help.

It's a CRIME! I tell ya!
People like me get lost in this stuff.
There's no way out for me.
I'm lost in tatting.
Take this for instance.
I love "snow"
flakes that is.
Tatted snowflakes are some of my favorite
things to tat.
Jon has this fabulous pattern book.
She even included this sweet little "sample"
with her book!
Wishing me well with my addiction!
Now, that's some "dealer" love!
I know, I know, I can't blame it all
on the dealers.
I have to take responsibility for my addiction.
For instance, the lengths that I went to track
down the author of this book so I could purchase it
Then there is the Grand-daddy of
Handy Hands Tatting.
The following photos are an example of a
very small purchase from hhtatting.
They sell it all from threads, book and shuttles
to this odd bit of
A shuttle winder!!
They even have fun, colorful shuttles
with which to explore my addiction.
Is there a 12 step program for people like me?
