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.

Butterfly cap

The butterflies on the brim are from Barb Foster. The one on the crown is from sarahwood8. She doesn't know the original source but is hoping someone will know. The thread is Lizbeth "Ocean Sunset" #155. I am happy with the end result. We'll see if it sells tonight.

Regal Heart

This is Regal Heart from Teri Dusenbury's book. It's not precisely as her instructions are written. I'm a flip and chain kinda gal. This heart is slated for another cap.
