Renulek's Spring doily and video-trend :)


I try to keep my promise and to write about news.

Unfortunately, this spring for me isn't very effectual about tatting. The weather is awful here: -5 and blizzard and wind and cold snow brrrr.... And we are to take some vitamins... And I'm soooo tired because of my job! I have to sleep more, to work more, almost no time to tat! :( But I try to!

Some days ago I explored for myself video-blogs on YouTube. It turned out, that embroider(er)s make videos very often about everything they know or they do in embroidery and share it. They make videos about: their progresses of a week, their favorite threads, books, patterns, instruments, beads, they compare different threads, and so on. It's so interesting to watch it and to tat or to embroider at the same time! I've never seen something like this about tatting. First of all, it motivates very much, secondly, it shows different opinions and ways, thirdly, it enrich our knowledge... Why not to use? And it's so positive!
I made three videos (Russian) about tatting in this way:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7e65jFYLIE (two videos about my instruments and shuttles, unfortunately, I can't download the first part)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQSHoOY54Kk (how to "undo" a chain and a ring)
It's the first experience, I don't know yet if it will be useful.

I had some inspiration and made also a very short "sample" video-cartoon about Lita. It is about 1-2 minutes, she just walks and finds something on the ground and then walks again. I won't download it, but I'm VERY proud about this my IT-progress :)

I tat a bit, but... just look! Renulek's Spring 2014 doily!
 I began it three times and finally I continue the grey one. It's the first ball.
I also embroidered a little mermaid, but it's a present and I will show it in summer with the owner.

And I read, read and read. I do like Alex Pehov. And two days ago I began to read "Fire Faculty" by Alex Kosh. I do love this man! He is handsome, his style is magnificent, his books are interesting... Oh, it seems to me, somebody is in love...

And today I decided to have one more experiment. Maybe because I'm so tired. I decided to work (a period of time) in silence without audio books, video blogs and music. The effect is fantastic! I meditate and listen to my own thoughts and many-many ideas come to me! This is the best way to relax and to create. :)

P.S. I'm not very sure about my English, but I'm sure you understand me :)

Happy tatting!
