Too cold to tat!
Winter has been slow in arriving this year, thankfully, but at the weekend it arrived with a vengeance. This picture taken from our verandah shows the lawn covered in frost. The strange thing is that the houses here make no allowance for cold weather. Our open-plan cottage has no fireplace, no radiators, no underfloor heating.... It doesn't even have carpets, just icy cold tiles. Summer gets hot, and there's a very efficient watercooled fan to help with the heat - assuming you survive the winter! My hands were just frozen at the weekend, I didn't do any tatting. Today the sun is shining, so I found a sunny spot, thawed and got on with my edging.
