WHY. IS. TATTING. SO. HARD

for rings, keep your left hand loose and your right hand taut. i think you are maybe missing the flip. have you tried youtube?


i have watched like 10 tutorials and each one seemed better than…

i have watched like 10 tutorials and each one seemed better than the last but when i tried again it would always end up wrong somehow… like it was going backwards idk… i’m pretty sure i’m missing this flip, because i saw it on many videos and images and tutorials and i think i might even dream about it tonight, but i just can’t get it right. the whole day was spent trying to simply start a ring, but i couldn’t even manage to pull the right end (like, the left hand end was always the one that made the ring smaller, the right hand one just seemed tied to it)

BREAKING: Peaceful Protesters In Ferguson MO Get Pummeled By Police Officers After Their Chief Marched With Protesters

  • I think the PD is aggressively attacking protestors because they assume & no longer gives a damn
  • Chief Jackson did this. His officers did this. Women were attacked. He said he was marching with us. Lies..he set us up
  • And Chief Jackson didn’t do ANYTHING to stop the attacks and mayhem. DID NOTHING!
  • LOTS of cops out right now. A short clash with the police after arrests were made. Live Feed Here:

Fuck the police.  Seriously.  All this to protect a murderer.

Both men and women should feel free to be sensitive. Both men and women should feel free to be strong. It is time we see gender as a spectrum, and not as two sets of opposing ideals.

Justice Department sides with 14-year-old girl raped while serving as 'bait' in middle school sting

middlemarching:

So this happened in my home town, and it’s horrible. What’s even more horrible is that it doesn’t look as though any criminal charges are being brought against the adults at Sparkman Middle School who knew what was going on and allowed it to happen. Like I straight up don’t care where you’re from, this needs to have about 500% more media attention than it’s currently receiving. This happened in 2010, and has been so neatly covered up by my home town’s school board that I’m sick just thinking about it.

Here is the contact information for the Madison County schools administration. A friend of mine suggested titling any emails you send to superintendent with “Sparkman Middle School Rape Case,” just to drill home that in no way was what happened to this girl “inappropriate touching,” as was actually put into the school’s incident report. 

Conditions are never perfect. ‘Someday’ is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. If it’s important to you and you want to do it ‘eventually’, just do it and correct the course along the way.
