How many times is it that I come online to blog and then forget, surf around, check, re-check and re- re- check my mails, shut off and then remember thereason formy coming online? Too many times. Really, I must put a reminder on my laptop that beeps every ten seconds to remind me the reason why I came online. On another thought I should have reminders,stick up notes and what-nots everywhere around the house to remind of so many things.
These days, as it has been for the past year and more, I come online when my son sleeps. The funny things is, the second he falls asleep, I am so excited that I have ‘me’time that I forget everything that I have to do.The only thing that I do remember is that I have to go online. Once online, I forget why I am there… most of the time I have already checked and replied to my mail and most of the times I don’t remember about blogging… then what do I do, you ask? I really don’t know. It’s like my mind clears the cookies, cache, web history and all online details just like my computer does, the minute I shut it down. Amazing, aren’t I?
Okay, the reason I came online today is to tell you that, I have made more motifs. Motif no.21 is my first attempt with beads. Yeah I know I did try it before but it couldn’t be called as a motif, could it? I really don’t know what to do with it further but it looks so cute and I want to just tack it somewhere.
Motif no.22 was inspired by Jon Yusoff. She is an amazing tatting artist ad her work with rings and beads has really hooked me on. I am absolutely in love with the earings she made. Her tutorial where she shows how to make ds on a plastic ring gave me the start that I needed. I couldn’t get the plastic rings here but I did manage to get some metal rings. I have been working since then.
Isn’t it too cute? I don’t know what I am going to use this for but I have some ideas. I am just crazy about rings now. The day I saw the tutorial on Jon’s blog, I went out that very evening to get the rings and the beads. Hubby must have thought me crazy because we had so many problems finding the rings and the beads. There aren’t any shops that cater to the needs of a tatter here and I have searched high and low.I had to get most of my supplies from India. I don’t shop online either so it gets really difficult but once in awhile I do find something that can be considered useful. And that’s when I feel the ‘Aha’moment. 🙂
