An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

Round 7 Begun
For many years I lived on a remote farm with a very long, dirt access road. The first few times I made the journey, it seemed interminable. Then I discovered that the way to cope with it was to divide it into quarters. If I knew I was only in the second quarter, I didn't start looking out for the farm house; and each quarter mark gave me a sense of progress. What does that have to do with tatting? I have marked round 6 of Renulek's doily into quarters using yellow thread, to measure my progress on round 7. I've just passed the first quarter marker, whoo-oo.
