Look what I got in the mail today!!!!

The tatting guild is holding a tatting exchange called "Fall-oween". And my tatted item arrived today. The pumpkin is jewelery (it has a pin on the back) and it came in this hand made card with tatted flowers on the front. I do love getting jewelery!!! Is it not cute!?! I'm going to pin it on my apron, that I wear for work, so all my customers can see it.

I know I have not posted for awhile and I'm sorry but I have been tatting my fingers to the bone, trying to get things ready for the craft sale in late November. I do not mind making the items but have a hard time with pricing things. I aways under price things and my friends get mad at me.

Until next time keep on tatting!!!

More from the Fringe...

Man, can work get in the way of what you want to do. Really wanted to have posted earlier but time just got away from me.

I was lucky enough to have won 3 raffle draws that weekend in Cambridge. This book is one of my favorite prizes. I do not have any old collector tatting books so I guess this will be my start.
The other prizes were a little photo book with hand cream and a gift basket full of many lovely thing as threads, storage box, candy and a tatting shuttle.

I have been busy tatting some doilies, snowflakes and bookmarks for a sale my girl friend is having in November. Thought I should get some things done now before life gets to busy again.

I also purchased this book by Heather Lickley who has written for the Ring of Tatters about Elgiva Agnes Nicholls. A very interesting lady and a good read. Heather comes over from the UK each year for the Fringes workshops. She is a lovely lady.

Well that is all for now. But I know that when I push the publish post button I will think of something else I wanted to say. It will have to wait until next time.

Tat on.
