what was..

This ...... Was similar to this...

...Until we got this...

A few weeks ago we "lost" one of our girls, Ruby. That's all I'm going to say about that. .................. Zoe, our Sheltie, didn't like being alone, nor did DH and I like how quiet the house was. In the past we've learned the only way for us to go onward is to put all that time we spend being sad into a new friend, so we got Maya. She is a Springer Spaniel (field breed) puppy.

Really what were we thinking LOL. Most certainly not that we were getting a tatting eater :-)

Both the original and the redo dachshund were tatted in size 20 Lizabeth thread using a pattern from Martha Ess' More Critters on the Block. I had originally made the dachshund to attach to a fabric postcard for our friends who recently got a new dachshund puppy. I also wanted to make a second one for Patricia, a friend from work. I still plan to make the postcard and tat another one of these fun creatures for my friend, but having a puppy has taken up alot of my time!

Plus, I am working on some secret projects. You may have seen some of our tatting friends talk about the secret projects they are working on, well I am a part of that too. That's all I can say about it though. :-)

Since Maya and the secret projects are taking up alot of my time, I don't have any other tatting that I can show you ............. right now :-)

Tat On!
