Runner Finished

It took me 3 months but I finally finished this dresser runner. It's from Tatting Theory and Patterns by Jan Stawasz.

Sandy's Scarf

This is from the Helping Hands Winter 2019 news letter. I just kept going as it was designed to actually be a scarf. I had planned on a 5 foot runner for my buffet. It's a lot of tatting. Then at an estate sale last week I found a crocheted runner. So here's where I ended with this project. It will get used someplace.

Butterfly and tulip garden

I've been dabbling in Gouache paint. I like having watercolor paint that I can put a light color over dark if I need to. I've tatted a bunch of butterflies to play in the flower garden.

Here are the newest cards I've made. They will be in the art show and sale tomorrow and Sunday. I hope they'll be a hit.

 Did these sunflowers in art class recently.
 Also been making Renulek's Easter eggs for cards. I'll post more later on.
And I was given this. If you turn the knob the little spikes slide in. It says Daisy Knitter. Does anyone know how to use it?

I've Been Published

Hey, hey. I've been published in the Our Canada magazine for the month of March. Also my little mug shot is in the index on pg 5. I hope this will help people understand tatting a little better. I like the article. Yes I wrote it and they tweeked a bit. Found that funny.

Oak Tree

Here's what I've been working on for the past 3 weeks.

Sun catchers

I've been playing with some more sun catchers. The very top one is actually Lizbeth blue ice, but it doesn't show up on the picture.
I've also found that some of the centers from Jan Stawasz books make nice sun catchers as well.
I'm all out of #20 white crochet cotton. I went to lots of stores but no one had #20. I finally sent for some on Amazon. It's Aunt Lydia's and if you by $35.00 worth the shipping is free. They were on for $3.29 Cdn a ball.
