Tatting..... the best medicine !!!

Hello Everyone
Yes I am still here. Between computer problems and life, I just haven`t blogged much. I am hoping to get back to it. I do have much to share but I won`t do all of it on one post!! Some good things and some sad things too. But lately I have noticed just how much I NEED tatting and the tatting community. On February 11th, while she was on holiday in Florida, my mother in law suddenly passed away. We were able to get her home and say our goodbye late last week. While going through this time my husband and I really didn`t want the tv on or the radio, so I decided to start on Renulck 2015 Spring doily. I didn`t know how much I would be able to do or finish. Below is a picture of the doily.




I have been able to keep up with the posts of instructions to date. I am using Lizbeth size 20 threads. This tatting work has helped me so much. I find I can be there for my family but still have time for myself and this tatted piece. I think when I finish it I will rename it ``Muriel`` and perhaps frame it too. We will see.

I promise my next post will be happier!!

Pinky

Hello everyone

We had a great long weekend here in Canada!! I spent time with both family and friends.
I made a trip into Toronto and did some bead shopping and then home with the family enjoying the outside and doing some bbqing!!!

Today I have Pinky to show you!!!


This one of Janes patterns and she is very kindly letting me teach her this September at the Fringe Tatters weekend.

I do have more to show but just not the time. Hopefully later this week!
Bye for now.

On my way!!!!

Morning Tat-Land

Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend and got to do some tatting too!!

I have decided to join the group of tatters and start tatting "Spring Doily"!


Work started last night and I think it is going well! I am using size 20 Lizbeth threads with a beautiful hand dyed thread from Karey Solomon.

What is on your needle or shuttle now?

Have a good day!!

Score

Hello Everyone

On my last post if you guessed the bird on the left was needle tatted you were right!!!

I have been busy with many different tatting projects lately but I just had to share with you the big SCORE I just made at a little thrift store in town.



The box had over 100 hankies in it!!!! And here is the big news......I only paid $10.00 for the whole thing!!! Some I will keep but I think some with end up in raffle prizes for the Fringe tatting event!

I just love getting great finds like this!! Have you found anything neat lately where you live?

Have a great day!

You can.........

And I can too......
Look out I'm back!! I really didn't go to far but things do get nuts and sometimes you have to give something up just to stop from going nuts too.
I am still doing lots of tatting (that will never change!!!) And I thought today of all days was just as good as any to restart blogging again!!!

Happy International Tat Day!!!!!

I was at my friend Ruths' house this past weekend and seeing a very hard working BC3 did a pattern for her we decided to give it a good run (or fly)!!

Lets see if you can tell which toucan is needle tatted and shuttle tatted!!





We had a get time working this guy up and fun shopping too!! But more on that later!!!

Have a great day and eat some chocolate (and tat too!!)
