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.

Three little trinkets

Here are 3 little bits I've come up with. I think the butterfly may go on a card.

Two more bookmarks

Two more bookmarks. I need to be stiffening them, but I'm off to my mom's for a week of shopping and crib playing.

Nice Find

We went garage saling today and I made a nice find. This is another Crafting Traditions magazine from July/Aug 2000. I wish I'd subscribed more to this mag. Here's a pic of lovely tatted bells with a pretty ribbon. I haven't made them, but I like them. It's made by Barbara Marshall of Fort Ripley, Minnesota. There are even some clappers inside.

A little bookmark

Well, I didn't tat much on holidays. Here's the finished product. I guess I should stiffen it a bit.

Another travel treasure

I found this (or these) in an antique store in our travels. I've always thought they were neat. If you google Matroshka you will see pictures of all sorts of them. Even Star Wars and Beatles.
