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 Jane's Bookamarks

These were revamped into crosses by Grace Tan. I enjoy making them. The one on the left, I made a mistake at the bottom, so I just made the same one on the top.

3 more bookmarks

This is what I got done while camping the past two weekends.  Both camping excursions included tractor pulls. My husband loves tractor pulls. I'd rather watch paint dry. So, I was very happy to stay at our trailer and tat. The spiral bookmark on the right side gave me some grief. I had made the whole thing and then realized that the first two rings were hooked up wrong to the next clover. Ahhhhh!. I was able to pick them out (backwards) and remake them. Not so easy when there was no picot to hook them to. But, I sure will be a lot more vigilant next time.

Butterfly and Snowflake hats

Got some more hats ready for today's market. I got the butterfly from Sarah Wood. It's a graph and was a little erroneous. But, I got it figured out. I utilized the split chain and ring methods. Always good practice for me. The white hat is a snowflake from Jon Yusoff's patterns. My thread is Lizbeth,Spring Garden.

Bits and Pieces

I spent last week at my mom's, about 120 miles north. She is 90 and still lives on her farm. The only animals she has are a few stray cats that have adopted her. Why not, the food's good. I only had a couple balls of thread with me. Something I will take note to rectify on the next visit. Anyway, I puttered away with what I had for colors. The two snowflakes are from Jon Yusoff's patterns. It all will someday brandish a cap.
Tonight is Farmers Market, but right now, (9:00a.m.) it's raining. I hope it will stop by early afternoon.
