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.

These were very fun to make. My hubby and I have been up to my mom's. She's been in the hospital. So having a simple project to work on was handy. Mom's ok. While in emergency she fell and broke three toes. We stayed at her house and then brought her home and took care of her for a few days. Hopefully she will be alright over Christmas. Don't want to repeat that again.

Special Snowflake

I made several snowflakes and neglected to post them. I did just finish this one. It's pretty special to me as it wasn't meant to be one. This is a portion of a doily from Jan Stawasz's book Tatting theory and patterns. I just made one motif and stiffened it for a snowflake. I belong to an art club and they wish to have a gift exchange of something from our craft. I'm not a very good painter, but got positive responses when I mentioned I was a tatter. So I hope this one will take some interest.
