It's been 3 weeks? I can't believe it's been that long. Time flies faster than I thought. And for those 3 weeks, I didn't do much tatting. WHY?

Because the house was to dirty, I hardly found a clean spot to tat. WHY?
It's really a mess in my house, it's so difficult to clean it, with all the stuff on the floor. WHY?
Do I start to annoy you? The big secret is : I'm repainting my living room. Well, most of it was being done by the painters actually LOL.

The painters did the basic boring wall. Because I want to have a less boring wall, me and my husband (honestly, just the two of us) do a little creative thingy on one side (and FYI..it's going to be just ONE side of the room LOL). It takes about 20 hours to set it up, and another 2 days to have guts to open the tape ^_^

Enjoy the pictures :

Started by placing the mask tape, drew some circles, and cut it out

paint it (upps...the "melted" chocolate down there : my mistake ^_^)

Another paint here and there and wait until it dries, open the mask tape and taaa daaa....here what we have now

And the last picture, the man behind the wall, who's asking to be remain un-faced ^_^

Well, I do a little tat to, here and there, mostly at the office during lunch break. Just some old patterns,

A spiral bookmark

Lots and lots of Birds on the Wire paperclip

And the pretty shamrock paper clip By Ellen Lai

It's such a tiring yet an exciting week. And I hope you also have a nice day...

I don't think I'd have the patience to put that much work into a wall, but it sure looks amazing! Love the paperclips!

I LOVE that wall! You have to leave it that way forever! LOL! We're currently painting in the basement....which is taking us forever and a day and I really want to get my son down there or I'd suggest it to him.

OOHHH I love how you did your wall. That is so creative!! THanks for sharing the pictures.

Nice paperclip bookmarks. I have these printed out to make some. But first I want to tat some fall leaves.

Have a great day!
