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.

Ugly bunny

I got this idea to make a three dimensional bunny from Mark Meyers pattern. His flat bunny is cute. Mine, however, belongs to the Ugly Bunny club.

Split chain

Upon watching Linda Davies UTube on split chains, I finally get it. Yipeee. It's not perfect, but it's the best it's ever been.

Heart butterfly

I was fiddling with Anne Bruvold's Christmas hearts. I put three together, thinking it would make a fan. It turned out to make a butterfly.

Another Sea Horse


Rootbeer Bear

This is from Pam Palmer's book Tatting Treats 2. It took me awhile, as I had some comprehension problems. Another time, I would start the arms from the inside out, rather than from outside to in. I appreciate that she included diagrams, as that helps with where to attach at a picot, sometimes.
It's made from Lizbeth #20, Root Beer Float. I added some google eyes and put a little bow on it.

Sea Horses

These cute little guys were designed by Debbie Arnold in 1999. Thanks Debbie. There's lots of SS and RW in them. I hate having to set it down once I start, as I loose track of which shuttle and side I'm supposed to be on. Even if I've set it out like it should be when it's time to get back to it.
