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.

Angel #2


This is JoAnn Engelbrecht's angel that was published in Crafting Traditions, many years ago. I'm enjoying using colors for them.

Hankie doily and Christmas angel

 This hankie doily was made by my aunt. She passed away about 15 years ago. She was a tatter. I didn't learn from her. Wish I had. This was such a smart idea. Using a hankie in the middle. It's not tatted, but a person could use tatting to do it.
This is Joanne Engelbrecht's Christmas angel 2012. I'm not sure if I did something wrong, but mine turned out a bit full figured. My daughter named after the hippo from the movie Madagascar. Gloria.

 I got another hat finished.
Here's a lovely young buck on my mothers farm. I won't tell where you are little deer.

Trio of Rings

This for another hat brim. I found it in Workbasket March 1964. Whoa, I was 10 years old then. How about that?

Some Christmas Tatts

This is the new Lizbeth thread Arctic Waters.

Rainbow Splash motif

I thought I'd show this one before I put it in a coaster. It's my Lizbeth Rainbow splash. It's so fun to play with.

3 sizes

Here's a size comparison. Fox's pretty motif is on the left. She used her "Perfect Quilter" thread. There's a loonie in the middle (not a penny). The one on the right is size #30 DMC and on the bottom is #20 Lizbeth.
