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.

More Beaded Snowflakes

Jane will be so proud of me. I got right beady with these. I'm still tatting snowflakes for gifts. I wanted to have these ready for my aqua size instructor and another for a good friend, who admires my tatting.

A tatting from a long time ago

This is a tatted, large, doily I did as a Christmas present years ago for my mother-in-law. When she passed away, I got it back. I need to take a better picture of it. But it needs some pressing. It was a lot of work, because I made lots of mistakes that I had to cut out and redo.

First Bauble

My first bauble. This one took me lots of time, as I wasn't comprehending the pattern very well. It's from Janet Carrol's "Elegant Tatting Patterns"

some new Christmas ornaments

I finally got these done and stiffened. I put some frosty sparkle on them too. The bell is my first try at adding beads. The three kira's stars are for a woman who wants them for her three daughters.
