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.

Another Cross

Here's another cross all finished. I'm getting better at concentrating. Not perfect yet.

Two More Additions

Two more pieces. The cross is in the new Rainbow Splash from HH. I always have trouble making this cross. I don't keep enough careful watch to see where I'm supposed to attach the rings.
The other can go down as my first snowflake of the season. I've painted sparkle on it, but it's not showing up in the picture.

Pretty Things from Fox

Pretty things arrived from Fox today. 2 hankies, a dainty tat and some Perfect Quilter thread. Sooo pretty. Thank you so much Fox.

Some coasters

Here are my first two tatted coasters in an acrylic coaster. I'm hoping they'll sell at Christmas Farmers market. More to come.

Little Flower

My mom loaned me one of her light summer nighties when we stopped into her place before carrying on for a camping trip. I was glad to have the light nightie as the nights were hot on that trip. Before I return it, I've made a little tat and sewed it on. The thread it rayon, Lily brand. Not fun to tat with. It's extremely slippery and even likes to slip off the bobbin. Well, mom will like it.

Who says blue and green should not be seen, unless there's something in between. Baa.

Hats #24 and 25

Yes I went through my blog and these are number 24 and 25. The mauve hat is for me. I bought it at Crater Lake, Or. Lovely place. And I wanted to have some new tatting on a hat. My old one is getting a little doggy looking.

Rainbow Splash Bookmark

Well, there's the new Lizbeth "Rainbow Splash" in a bookmark. I love the colors. They are so bright and colorful. I made this while camping over the weekend.
I think I nagged Handy Hands for nearly a year to convince them to make it.
