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 bookmarks

A couple weeks ago my husband and I went to a heritage days weekend down in southern Alberta. I had taken some tatting along and didn't want to just sit alone in our holiday trailer doing it. So I went to their craft fair and approached a lady with three tables of crocheting and some knitting for sale. I asked her if it would be ok if I sat with her and did my tatting. She was happy for the company, so for two afternoons we sat and did our crafts and had a wonderful time visiting, getting to know each other and talking about our favorite crafts.
By the second day she had rummaged through her stash and brought me several balls of lovely colored tatting thread. So, I promised I would make her a tatted cross. Still don't know which one to send.

I've made some new hats

I'm getting ready for a fall market next month. Do I have enough hats?? :)

Need some help

Can anyone tell me how to change the email address on my blog. I am soon to be canceling my other internet provider and haven't been able to make the email address change.
Thank you

Birch trees

I've been playing with some water color this week. We're still are doing a lot of traveling, as mom is still in the hospital 120 miles away. We are awaiting word about when she will be moved to a long term care facility and where.

Jane's bird

I put Jane's little birdie on a tree. I used water color pencils for the drawing. I'm pleased with the turnout.

Sorry not much happening

Well, I am working on Jane's TIAS. But, alas mom's back in the hospital. This time she's had a stroke. We've been staying at her home and driving back and forth to see her. She is improving some, but I really don't know how much she will improve. Next it's going to be meeting with her doctor to see what kind of long term care and where she will go.
