I am tatting every moment I get these days. But my time has been limited lately. My husband is really sick now. All his life he has never been sick--until now. He has always done a physically demanding job--a produce manager for a major grocery chain. He has not worked for 4 months so far. And the doctors don't know what is causing his sickness. Anyway, I'm trying to "hold down the fort", so to speak. So, if you could say a prayer (or many prayers) for us, I would love it. I read on AOL today that any kind of repetitive task like knitting (or tatting, in my case) can be a stress reliever, and I believe it. I tend to go to my tatting when I am going through something stressful. I'm also trying to build up my stock of tatting for my ornaments and, hopefully, when the holidays come again, I will sell many of them. I really am selling them all year round and have sold several so far. I write little Scripture promises on the back of them. I guess you would say they are my obsession right now. Well, I really must go now--my tatting is calling me. . . .
