No, I haven't disappeared - I've just been working on the hemstitch edge of the dresser scarf. I managed to finish that up tonight, and my fingers were itching for the shuttle, so I started a small square doily from a pattern/sample in my dad's collection. This one will be special if I can actually do it because it is a design done by my aunt. I will have to contact her and see if she created the pattern - it is just written on a piece of paper with a tatted sample stitched to the page.
The dresser scarf is now ready for a painted design and tatted edging. I've decided on a pattern for the tatting, but I won't know the color until the painting is done.
It's good to have more than one project going, right? :)
