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.

Pearl Butterfly

Ooops, I didn't realize until day light that I used two different shades of white. This is from Shabby Chick Tatting by Rozella F. Linden. It's the only thing I've made from her book. I didn't include pearls. The pattern is hard to understand and has errors that I have to figure out. Poorly written in my opinion.

bow and bells

I saw this on line. I regret I do not know who did it first. It's a gift for a dear friend. Can't wait to give it to her.

Snowman and Angel

These are little gifts for family and friends. The snowman's hat is from Jane Eborall's patterns.

We Three Angels

I made these by special request for a friend who likes to give her daughter purple ornaments in groups of three. Last year was those dark purple bells. I'm glad she gave me permission to use variegated. I love variegated threads and yarns. I think I have a color addiction.

My Christmas Sweater

Couldn't help myself. I just had to buy this ugly Christmas sweater for the Christmas farmers market. Walt-Mart special. I thought it might be cold, like last year, so I wore a knitted dickey with it. Didn't need it this year, it was off within the first hour.
