About Me

My photo
I retired early because my legs don't like holding me up for too long. So now I can do things in my own time. I like to sell things at farmers market. Most of which, I've made myself, e.g. homemade soap, crochet dish cloths, hand towels, baby afghans and of course,..tatting.

Jane's bird

I put Jane's little birdie on a tree. I used water color pencils for the drawing. I'm pleased with the turnout.

Sorry not much happening

Well, I am working on Jane's TIAS. But, alas mom's back in the hospital. This time she's had a stroke. We've been staying at her home and driving back and forth to see her. She is improving some, but I really don't know how much she will improve. Next it's going to be meeting with her doctor to see what kind of long term care and where she will go.

These were very fun to make. My hubby and I have been up to my mom's. She's been in the hospital. So having a simple project to work on was handy. Mom's ok. While in emergency she fell and broke three toes. We stayed at her house and then brought her home and took care of her for a few days. Hopefully she will be alright over Christmas. Don't want to repeat that again.

Special Snowflake

I made several snowflakes and neglected to post them. I did just finish this one. It's pretty special to me as it wasn't meant to be one. This is a portion of a doily from Jan Stawasz's book Tatting theory and patterns. I just made one motif and stiffened it for a snowflake. I belong to an art club and they wish to have a gift exchange of something from our craft. I'm not a very good painter, but got positive responses when I mentioned I was a tatter. So I hope this one will take some interest.

Christmas Angels are Gathering

Well, here's my first four Christmas angels for Christmas market next month. I call the third one Lucy. She's got some big eyes.

Been crochetting

This is what I've been up to lately. I'm a sucker for variegated colors. These are mostly children's hats. I hope to sell them at Farmers Christmas market. Now it's time to get to some Christmas tatting.

Jane's cute little robin has become a blue bird. Guess I should put him on a card.

On The Hats Again

Well, Christmas Farmers market is coming up fast. So, I've been working on hats again.
