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.
A friend of a friend of mine is a tatter. She created the icicle on the left and it was on her tree. I wanted to make one, so mine is on the right. It wasn't so easy going by the original to write the pattern.
