Branching Out


Because I've been struggling with a few sore fingers, I haven't been able to tat or knit or crochet. A major problem for me...I've picked up the brushes. I do belong to an art club, but haven't done a whole lot. But a photographer friend took this pic a bit ago and gave me permission to paint it. I like old rough fence posts. And also owls. So I have been playing with this for a few days. 

Painting Rocks

 I've been painting a few rocks. They are fun.

Christmas tatting


I've been having lots of fun tatting these.  The snowflakes are from the book "Four Dozen Tatted Snowflakes by Robin Perfetti.
The top is from "Frivolite Con Sabor" They can be found on Etsy. 

I wish I could tat more. But now I'm having trouble with some of my fingers, as they get stiff and sore when I bend them. I might have to behave myself for a while. :(

 Been wrestling with Jan Stawasz's cross. Took me four tries. The left one is wrong. I learned there is such a thing as a counter clockwise ring. Unless somebody knows something I don't. At which case I'd love some advise.

Jennifer Williams basket of flowers


This basket pattern is a freebee from Jennifer Williams. I did put my own twist on it. I can't seem to master the pearl tatted basket handle. But I did finally get a good demo for the twisted chain. I do like it now that I understand how it's done.
