Just a quick thought

I am watching Apollo 13 right now and i was thinking about how tatting would be an awesome to do in space...heck anything would be awesome in space! that's all

Monday, July 19, 2010


Boy oh Boy!
So lucky. today windows media player is WORKING!!!!
So i am uploading my video, that i meant to upload A WEEK AGO!

The video is how i un tat my rings. I show two methods that i personally use. The first is through picots. I do realize that i tear off a piece of thread but its ok... but I show you because it is really heard to tell. The second way is if you don't have a picot to work you can use one or the other or both... do what you want. This is how i do it. The Second method is REVERSE SPLIT CHAIN basically. in the video i say something about it but here is what i was TRYING to say...
If you know how to split chain then you know the theory and you would understand how to reverse it.

TO make this easier...this method...just remember that you are un-doing. so if you see your thread going through a loop then you put your shuttle through going the other way..reversing... Boy oh Boy. I am confusing y'all more and more.

I have been tatting up a storm...ish. i love this pattern I did mine in black thread with a red button and red beads. pictures later. Also I did Hearts and Flowers
again in black thread but with blue later...

I love this week already. Trying to start with positive! My sister is coming over wednesday! I can not wait to see my niece. And here she is! My little MIRA (her real name is miracle but know...lazy)

Meme of Many Odd Questions, Part Two

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing. Sunday Stealing originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, sometimes to select that meme's best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from either this new meme or recently asked questions from a prior featured meme. Let's go

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger named Kuda Girl of the blog named Kuda Girl's Journal. Kuda Girl explains that she ripped it from two bloggers Slay Me Softly and Dragon Fly Lady. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. It has 65 questions, so we'll do it in parts. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

A rant an not really tatting related,

sorry y'all my windows movie maker hasn't been working. still going to be a day or so for the un tatting. its been so turbulent here... stuff might be happening next week... i just don't know...maybe everything will be ok...maybe. But i am expecting the worst.

Amazingly Anthony has been trying really hard to job search...and by that it means i have been yelling more.
i HATE the public transit out here. it so expensive. its so expensive and they expect us to get onto a flaming hot, muggy, smelly bus and be happy paying for it... i'm sorry, if the stupid bus has a stupid AC turn it on! ESPECIALLY when its OVER 100 outside... Stupid!. Stupid.

Yesterday i had to go to my doctors appointment. its all the way in north Sacramento...actually Carmichael and i live in south i had to leave at 10:50 in the morning to get there at 1:30PM!
Luckily for me most of the buses i had to utilize was air conditioned...but i got on one and the stupid bus driver wouldn't turn on the AC. By that time it was 101. GrRR. I got home and took a shower...boy that felt good.

I love my doctors office. I only go to get birth control, so every three months. BUT everytime i go out there i end up getting a really bad headache and i get really sick...not to mention i have a touch of i usually come home and throw up (sorry for being graphic) and i am usually sick for a couple days after...LUCKILY i am not sick this time. so lucky.

Its the 16th. We have already spent...$34 for JUST the bus... and we are going to HAVE to spend another $18 at least...that's not counting if Anthony finds a job...which i am more than happy to spend THAT bus fare. LOL

Also in the mail I got my earring hooks. FINALLY. I can make earrings now and I have no idea why my laptop is so..grainy. it feels like someone poured sand on it.

My blessings. right now i am only listening to the sound of the bird outside my window Coo and the really large, really loud, really old fan go...I love nap time.. i have never taken one for granted...and i never will because they are cherished..
today Anthony went to apply to work at the state fair...its only 2 weeks but its work, and it makes him happy. I haven't heard from him all day... hopefully that's good news and not bad.

on the blog I won Freida from, she has another giveaway. Its for button pins. Here's the link to the blog...Fishing and Wishing. and Here's the particular contest...and here's the link to the Esty seller providing the contest...Eye Candy!

I won the Fishing and wishing giveaway for my FREAKY FRIEDA!!!!!!!!!! I FOUND OUT ABOUT 2 MINUTES AGO. darn cleaning...woulda been sooner.but! maybe some of you could possibly win something as cool as my Frieda...This is the blog I'm talking about Fishing and Wishing

the button the i won button!
Fishing and Wishing

To blog or To not blog...

Hmm. Today was eh OK. So nice without Anthony should happen more We have been lucky. Someone was giving away a really old fan on Sacramento Freecycle. We are SO lucky. they had posted it was taken and we thought we had lost the fan...BUT NO. the morning after it was posted taken...she brought it to my apartment. I didn't even catch her name...she was just in and out. I hardly saw her face... She has no idea how wonderful it is to have a powerful fan. A wonderful person who made us monumentally happy...Thank you! thank you so much...

Again Lucky...I was looking in my empty wallet and i came across my gyno appointment card...dated for TODAY. I would've so missed my appointment...luckily i was able to reschedule...i didn't miss my depo shot thank god.

Again Lucky. Since Anthony wasn't here (and out job searching) I was able to sit under the shade and talk with another mommy...she's such a nice person.

Dinner tonight- ravioli's for the kids and Anthony and taco for me.;p

can you hear everything rattling up there in my head...*rattle rattle*

On to tatting... i realized that i hadn't posted my shuttle video for split rings or split chains. First up is...split ring... single shuttle split ring is saved for another video... and another day

Explanation: usually this technique would be used in a pattern and (most likely) have both threads already there... in such a case DO NOT tie the knot!!! this is just to get you familiar with the technique. also there is a nice way to start another thread when doing a split ring or anything else...angain...another video...another day!

Next is...split chains!
I now realize that there are doing split chains going from right to left and split rings going left to right... i suppose you could just TURN your work...hmm...sad enough that thought just hit me...oh well. By the way (BTW) I did split chains going left to much easier (FOR ME)

Anything else to share? mmm. Eating Blue Bunny MINT CHOCOLATE cream in a class by itself...its so good. if your a fan cream or mint chocolate chip...go try it...seriously the quality is ASTOUNDING.

damn it! just looked at the clock...its 5:30 and i forgot to do the boys toys...supposed to freecycle them...or most of them...I know i am going to just list them tomorrow...Adios for now!

Buttons and chains...

I was bored and I thought that some people might be passing on buttons because they don't know how to tat with them. Seriously its dead easy. here's the video i made...

Another video I made was split chain. For needle tatters. Before y'all judge me...yes i know i need more practice with needle tatting but i think that since i am in my beginning stages people will see my POV..and we can grow together. to a seasoned needle tatter my chain is bad and my split ring is even worst...I am here to teach the technique. practice is what makes it look PRACTICE PRACTICE!!!

SO thats it...I'm off to practice practice.!!!
OH WAIT. if you go to my youtube channel...

i have links in the descriptions to very good tatting places...go check it out please

broken promises.

sorry y'all. I've been going all day and when i finally got the chance to tape the needle tatting battery dies...did i say sorry. But luckily (for me) it gave me a chance to paint my nails. they are a very lovely orange color. Have any of you heard of Pure Ice nail polish? HOT TAMALE. for some odd reason it makes me really happy.

Speaking of happy. I have noticed a huge leap of good mood-ness in myself since i have started re-watching Heroes... my favorite show hands down. that continued on to today when i put on my Switchfoot CD Nothing is sound. I could watch Heroes all day everyday...and i could listen to that CD forever and ever. Any way the double and triple picots will be moved to tomorrow.
