Christmas Stars

These are my latest endeavors for Christmas. They are from "Christmas Angels and Other Tatting Patterns." by Monica Hahn. They are very fun to make and not complicated. I've put gold beads along the outer perimeter.

Snowflakes for 2018

Here are four snowflakes that I've gotten done so far. The top two and bottom right are from Harolah the Shade Tree Designer. They are for a friend who plans to send them to Australia as part of her Christmas present to her friends. I put sparkle on them. But, unfortunately the sparkles don't show up in the picture.

This is my latest endeavor. I had done a fall market at our Legion. It must have been a cold day outside because I had a lot of interest in my hats. I sold the only adult one in this style so decided to try to make more before the Nov. Christmas market.

Bracelet by Harolah

I've just finished making the Simplicity bracelet designed by Harolah Cheser. I made it a little too long but maybe I'll find someone with big wrists. 🌝

Back in the Tatting Saddle

I've been crocheting towel toppers all summer. I finally quit after making about 25. I have a craft market at the end of this month. So I'm happy to be back to tatting again. ♪♪♩I'M BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN.♪♪

These are my latest endeavors. The top is flannel receiving blankets. The idea came from Dianne Cademartori, whom we know is such a talented lady. I bought the flannel 3 years ago. It took my daughter-in-law getting pregnant for me to get my butt in gear and get them done. Now we wait to hear if it will be a boy or a girl.
The bottom one is an idea from a pot holder that had already been made. I picked it up at a garage sale. Only the original was made of acrylic. I had put it in our holiday trailer and thought someday I would build one. Well, poor hubby got a hold of it and put a very hot frying pan on it and it melted. (Who makes a pot holder out of acrylic?) So I took what was left of it into the house and made another. Only cotton this time. I'm sure DH will be afraid to use it for awhile.

Here's my C2C progress. I've learned to always buy my yarn cakes with the same shade in the center. The color goes in a sequence. But if the centers of each ball are a different color, I'll loose one shade in the sequence. You can see in the last row I'm missing the teal color. Nobody will notice it, so I'm not going to cut a bunch of yarn off just for that. But I'm glad I realized it.
I'm enjoying making this, but on hot days it's a bit to warm. So, I have a TV tray that just fits on my arm chair. That way I can put the blanket on top of the TV tray and then turn on the cool air fan. The cool air blows under the tray to keep me cool.
