Paprika the Dragon

I missed this years deadline for submitting my TAT Course projects.  I have 1/2 of a project left plus technique samples.  Have a note to submit first opportunity next year.  Will give me plenty of time to finish, block and prepare for submitting.

In the mean time, I can now start and finish other projects that have been pushed onto the back burner.

Just finished Tat's AmorĂ© Paprika the Dragon by Martha Ess (needs to be blocked).  It was done in my HDT called Candy Apple.  Since this is the Year of the Dragon, it will be presented to our daughter and son-in-law in honor of our granddaughter when she is born in the next couple of weeks.

Vacation

No new postings for a while.  We decided to take a road trip.  Although I took my tatting, the only time I was primarily able to work on it was in the evenings.  Unfortunately, we had some very long drive days so my tat time was limited. 

I now have four samples done for the proficiency course.  My navigators have been distributed to my coworkers and now awaiting the arrival of our first grandchild.

My new agenda before Oct 26:  1) finish proficiency course and submit, 2) dye hot pink thread for bonnet for grandchild, and 3) start on pink awareness ribbon for a relative who is going through breast cancer.
