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.

Summer Tree

I'm not finished yet. I need some grass and I might add more leafs, not sure. It's hard to photograph a picture. The colors get off key. That's mount Funky Pajamas in the back ground. he he.

Cherry tree

This is what I finished while at my mom's for 11 days. It's hard to take a pic through glass using a flash. Can you see the birds?


Day 8


I thot this was day 7. Opps it's day 8. Oh well. Can't wait for the next step.

Day 4 of TIAS

Another feeble guess on Jane's TIAS. Well Jane says I'm a daft moo. So, it must be so.

Additions

I added some stray seeds and an inky dinky spider. I think I'm done this one now.

Scot's Thistle

Well. This is what I've been bumbling at lately. It's from Lindsay Rogers' book Tatting Collage.
I think I'll go make a spider to put on it.

WAAAAA

I've broken a Aero made in England shuttle. We all know how rare those are. This one was given to me by a lady who works in a second hand store. She knows that I tat. What she didn't know was this brand is my favorite. I've tried to Krazy glue it twice. To no avail.
So it is with utter dismay I announce the death of a very special shuttle. Aero shuttle was a good girl, having spent her life helpfully making lace and holding her bobbins with perfect precision. She is predeceased by her uncle "Space shuttle" her mother "Coal shuttle" and her father "Tram shuttle" In lieu of flowers, please make a special motif that you will keep for yourself.  RIP.

Improvments

My sore finger is much improved. I won't post a picture this time. I'll just say I've befitted from peroxide and a sharp needle. Now, don't get the queezies. Draining it doesn't hurt. Here's a more pleasant picture to look at.

Not For The Faint of Heart

I did manage to do day one of Jane's TIAS. My first start was a misunderstanding. I thought it was 1 + and then another vsp. But it meant that I was supposed to attach to the previous vsp. So here's a pic of my work and my still sore finger. Don't look if you haven't eaten. My 91 year old mom calls it a fellon. She used to get them from milking cows by hand. I am on antibiotics and a fungal cream.
My hubby says I got it from too much tatting. If that were so, then how come I've had them on my big toe.
Too much cooking, I'd say.

Making Changes

As most people know I've been both Mad Tatter and Batty Tatter for sometime. Chalk it up to confusion a few years back. So, now I've changed it to Batty Tatter.I hope I've done it right.
