if on a winter's night a tatter

Sometimes I read books, it happens on weekends or within a very short time, because when I start a book, I simply can't stop myself. One of my favourite books is by Italo Calvino, " If on a winter's night a traveler". I love reading it, I've read it at least 3 times. It comes out to be 10 novels, well, not exactly. Actually you're going to read only the first chapter, that interrupts you when you start being captured by the plot.

It remembered me that I guiltily tatted/designed 25 tatted squares but I drew only patterns for less than the half... My designer's attitude is like a writer who breaks off books with the first chapter...

I though I absolutely needed 10 bookmarks for my book.


(thank you Fox, for the wonderful coloured thread! for what would tatting be without friends?)

That's the project: I'll tat 10 bookmarks, one each month this year.

I need also a to-do-list for 2015: I started writing down a list, I would have written it into my notebook, but I didn't. I lost the list. I'm untidy. Anyway, I've the 2014 todolist, I may reuse that...

I' m pretty sure that's not all I wanted to say, because I tatted also a pair of earrings, I changed the stitches' count but the original pattern is by Stephanie Wilson. I can't remember now what I tatted else, maybe I didn't tat a lot during the last weeks. Apart the cone, the invisiballs and the tattingram...

  1. Such pretty thread in both pictures. You sound to be pretty busy to me, in spite of being distracted by reading. When I'm reading I think I should read more; when tatting that I should tat more. This weekend I was knitting socks and thinking of all the people who would like a pair of socks!
