Few phrases strike more fear in my heart than this one! When someone utters this infamous phrase then one of two things goes through my mind. The first thing that I think of is, "Uh-oh!!! What did I do NOW?" the second thing that might go through my mind would be, "WHAT!?! What is it!?! WHAT!?!". Neither one of these thoughts are very pleasant nor are the feelings they evoke, *LOL!
You, however, can just relax! When I say "May I have a WORD with you", I mean just that! A WORD or two or three or maybe four or more! *LOL! We use a lot of words when we blog, don't we? Even if we mostly show pictures; there are words written and used in blogging. There's no denying it. I was inspired today when reading this blog post on April Showers' Blog! She posted a word cloud that Wordle.net put together for her by putting in her blog URL. Curiosity got the best of me and, of course, I had to try it out!

Hmmm... "Tatting" and "giveaway" are the largest words on there.
Try it! You might learn a lot about your blog! *LOL!
So, what did I do with the rest of my day?
I started a new *WIP!
It's the start of Lady Shuttle Maker's
Royal Diadem tatted doily design!
I also ordered some very special
custom silk *HDT to tat it in!
I have heard it said that when you are
tatting a large project for the
very first time it's wisest to tat it
in a less expensive thread.
Why, you ask?
The reason for that is just in case you make a mistake...
...you might have to do ghastly things to your project.
Dun dun dunnnnnnnnn!!!
(Insert woman's scream from horror movie here)
Yes, it's true it happens and I have the photos to prove it...see?
It's all good, though because I'm practising in
the much less expensive
Valdani perle cotton threads!
I bought these particular balls of Valdani thread
after viewing this post on Lace Lovin' Librarian's blog!
I had to run right over to Beadinmama's eBay shop and
see what all the fuss was about.
I wasn't disappointed!
She's even painted a custom gourd shuttle for me!
(More on that later...stay tuned!!!)
One thing I really like about
Lady Shuttle Maker's Royal Diadem
doily pattern book is that she put these
little babies right inside the front cover!
See? They are picot gauges;
custom made just for this pattern's design.
Isn't that cool!?
Now THAT's customer service!
Well, now that I've had a word with you I'd love for you to have a word with me, *LOL! It's all good, right!?! Comments are always welcome and I cherish each and every one of them! Thanks for letting me share my latest *WIP with you! I have a poll on the top right side bar of my blog and I'd love to have your input on that as well! I've been busy with *OWOH visitors and being a visitor myself so I'll get around to my regular blog visiting soon, I promise!
