Not Tiny Tim and a Doily

My Mainland concert ukulele should be here tomorrow.  I can’t remember when I’ve been so excited.

I’m getting a hilarious reaction from my family…. like DON’T play the ukulele around us!  But I am excited enough about the musical possibilities that I will love disappearing into my own little world of music.

In case you associate ukuleles with Tiny Tim, take a look at these two Youtube videos.  This beautiful style is what I am most interested in learning.

Also, I’m working on tatting my first doily.  It’s Mary Konior’s Flowerpiece from Visual Patterns.  It’s a bit ruffly around the edges right now.  Hope it flattens out when I put the last round of flowers on it.

  1. “Firsts” are exciting! I wish I could hear you once you get going on your instruments.

    • Maybe I’ll run into you in a campground someday. And maybe you’ll have a keyboard by then! 🙂

    This is exciting. I hope we get to see pictures tommorrow and see a video soon thereafter! I don’t even carry a tune in a bucket but do enjoy hearing music by others. Karen in OR

  3. Looking forward to seeing your finished tatting doily. Once it’s done and blocked it will be awesome. I love Mary Konior’s patterns. I have worked on a few of her patterns too.

    • Nancy, I think it is going to be okay. I plan to block it before I add the last round.

      Her patterns are special to me, too. I thought this one was too advanced for me, but once I started working on it, it’s pretty straightforward. 🙂

    Wow I really need to get the tabs and learn that raindrops instrumental.

    • Isn’t it gorgeous, ukelefty? I think that’s the best uke playing I’ve ever heard.
