Just a bit of tatting to show you. The dragon is from Karey Solomon's new Dragon Book. I love dragons, but you didn't know that out there in Tattingland did you?? Anyhow when I was starting to get sick with the depression and before I ended up in the hospital Karey had sent me an email to proof this dragon. She didn't have to break my arm or shuttles. I love dragons, but I was starting to get sick...and I couldn't concentrate...and my dragon got started but I just couldn't see how I was going to get him done...I kept getting stuck and couldn't figure out how to make the dragon. This fustrated me...but as I got sicker ....I didn't want to do it anymore.
Well the past couple of days I worked on this dragon again. I got it finished but it isn't exactly how it was suppose to be made but pretty close. I think I will have to make another of this dragon pattern. Now that I did this one...maybe the second one will be easier. I still have concentration problems. Still can't sleep and still look tired now all the time. I don't feel rested at all and my energy level is all down. I have been told that it takes along time for the depression symptoms to go away. What I want to know is when I can go to sleep again ( who use to sleep like the dead) without taking sleepings like I have to now just to go to sleep. If I don't take them I can't sleep which leads me back to relasping which I did a couple weeks ago.
The other picture is Tatterly's Heart designed by Diana Stevens. I thought this heart would be simple to make and usually it would have been but like I said ...having problems concentrating and just missing things. I tried to make this heart three times and I finally got it made correctly. Here is the url for the heart pattern if you would like to get it and make it yourselves.
I hope the link still works for you. I had this pattern printed off since 12/23/00 which is the date on my print out.
Next week I will put up more pictures from Hector, New York event.
