Black Magics and a Motif

I made the blue one first. I didn't feel like blocking it. Then I made the green one. It came out a little bit better, I think.
Maybe I should try tatting another one. Would it be better?

Yesterday, I made this bead-tatted motif designed by Nina Libin.

Bead-Tatted Motif
It is supposed to become a bag charm. I used silk thread. Beads are for bead weaving so their sizes are almost exactly same. This was my first time to use those kinds of beads. It's a bit annoying to thread all the beads, but the result is neat.

Bobbins, bobbins

I bought this bobbinsaver from ds9designs while ago.
This morning, I suddenly want to tidy up my tatting tools and voila! Too many bobbins here. And too many shuttles, too.

I've been trying to wake up earlier than before. Say, no later than 5:30. I can manage during weekday. And that makes me really sleepy.

I usually come home no earlier than 21:30. There's not enough time to do everything I want. But that's not unusual. People are trying to do what they want to in limited time they have.

I'm a morning person, rather than a night owl. But getting on the first bus and the last train made me stay up late.
I want to keep good hours and I must do something.

I have not enough time to tat also. I tat in my lunchtime on weekdays, though.
