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.

This is Martha Ess' dragon, his name is Paprika. I made a mistake on him. Well, I'll have to try again.

ID: 23351 I just received this neat book from Singapore. It's a great instructional book for beginners, plus it has some cute patterns that I can't wait to try. They also sent me this adorable clover leaf bookmark. I am delighted.

Big Spinning Wheel

I've had this in my head to try for a long time. It's Mary Konior's glass mat, only I added to the length of the rows. The thread is a Cro Sheen #10. It isn't singed, so it took some extra care not to make mistakes. But I did anyway.
Kudos to Martha for making her progressing spinning wheel. That's the inspiration I needed.

Glass Mat #8

This really is mat #8. I'd made #7 the same colors as #6, so I didn't put it in.

Pastel Bunny gets a garden

Pastel needed a nice spring garden patch to enjoy. Today he goes to a dear friend. She loves bunnies and has a collection of them. I wrote a little poem inside.
When you're feeling lonely, when you're feeling blue. Look at little bunny and know I pray for you.

Pastel the bunny

My girlfriend wants a bunny. She asked for a variegated one. I have lots of #10 crochet cotton laying about. This is made from Cro-Sheen. It doesn't like to slide very well. I used plenty of Thread Heaven.

OH OH !!

Oh oh, in true bunny fashion, they're multiplying. The one on the far left has a larger bead nose. I like it better.

Two Little Funny Bunnies

Theses two little cuties are from Two Shuttles. Designed by WIKI fasclnata.blox.pl. I thought they were so cute, I just had to give them a try. I tried two different things for the nose. One worked better than the other. I'm already making a third one.
