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.

Jane's cute little robin has become a blue bird. Guess I should put him on a card.

On The Hats Again

Well, Christmas Farmers market is coming up fast. So, I've been working on hats again.

Some more treasures

Another thing I found at The Twisted Barn was this book. Tatting Farm Animals by Christel Weidmann. It's an intriguing book.I like the cow and the bunny rabbit.There's also a pattern for a bull, a  hen laying, several chicks and a sitting rabbit.

 And then there's this. I was searching through mom's living room drawer looking for something else and found this. She'd received it years ago with some leftover yarn. I supposed it's for holding a ball of yarn. Great little devise. Well it works good as a tatting shuttle too. Not as good as one with a hook on the end. But that's just my taste.

Major Find

My DH took me to Rocky Mtn House, on the way to visit mom (out of the way) as I'd heard about this great thread and yarn shop. I so wanted to check it out. The Twisted Barn. WOW! What a find. So, I was gonna buy 4 balls. Well.....then I saw more that took my interest. I think I only made two unintentional duplicates. The Blue Ice was intentional. I want to make snowflakes and angels.
I wound up with 27 balls. Yipeee! Such fun fun fun.
Then we went to mom's and spent the weekend at a nearby lake, camping and fishing. It was nice for mom because she could come and roast a smokie and a marshmallow. Our son and his wife and our daughter were able to be there also. So we had a wonderful time.
