I really love the smell of this plant in the spring when it is in full bloom and covers most of the back yard.
I have some progress photos for you on the first hat band. This is taken from a Japanese pattern book called "Tatting" by Yusai Shokoin. He is an amazing Tatting artist and his patterns are fun to do. I just have not gotten brave enough to do the bead work on some of his pieces.
This is the look of the band on the straw hat that I have:
Well that is all I have for today. I will be busy trying to get this finished today and set up the next band before I post again. The weekend will be busy with my grandson's first birthday party but I should be able to find some time to tat and with 8 good band patterns picked out I have projects enough to keep me busy even on International Tatting Day on Sunday.
