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.

Some baubles

I got two baubles made this year. They're both sold. One is from Renulka I used her pattern for the sides and another for the top. I added some extra rows. Wish I hadn't done that now. Oh well. What can ya do. The other is a snowflake pattern that fit nicely on top of a smaller ball.

Another tree

This one was white thread with a frosty filament embedded in it. I put gold sparkle paint on it.

new halo beads

I found some cute new halo beads for the angels.
I'm still playing with two different threads for the snowflakes. Jane has just posted a new snowflake a bit similar to this one. I can't wait to give it a try.

Finished tree

Sorry, it's a little blurry. My daughter gave me the idea to put the colored beads on each join. Then I put a little star in the middle of the top bit. I'm happy with the way it turned out (now).

Heavenly hoast and a snowflake

The angel on the lower right is Lizbeth Blue Ice and Arctic waters tied together. the rings were one and the chains the other. I like how the color scheme worked out. The snowflake in the middle is one from Jan Stawsz's book.

Jan Stawasz's Christmas tree.

Here's my first try on Jan Stawasz's Christmas tree. I used #10 gold with a strand of gold metallic incorporated in it. So....should I glue on some colored beads? Or is it finished as it is?
