Hello Everyone

I know it has been a while. Last time I blogged, I was waiting for some thread to arrive. Well it did but because it was nothing wonderful, so I didn`t blog about it. It was just some size 10 DMC Cebelia, in white, dk green and burgundy. My girlfriend Pat is having a craft show coming up the end of November and first weekend in December and I have been busy getting things made for the sale!!

First we have three, of some 9 bookmarks I have made in Lizbeth size 20 threads. Pattern is by LaRae Mikulecky called Lacy Bookmark. I love doing this one and it looks great in all thread colours.

Of course you have to have tree and wreath ornaments to sell.

I have tatted over 2 dozen snowflake ornaments. They are a pattern by Sharon Briggs called Beaded Snowflake. I did different types with less picots and different beads and pearls and colours of thread.
The angel is a Carolyn Groves on Georgia Seitz site. I love this little lady. All of these are made with the Cebelia threads.

Next is Rachel Jacksons`Poinsettia/Star Flower Earring pattern. The glitter is nail polish I had. I think it adds just enough glitter.

With all this Christmas stuff to think about, there was one song that would not leave my mind until I tatted `Hippy`here. I think you can guess what that song was!! Thanks Jane for this great pattern and for getting the song out of my head!! LOL

Last but not least I came up with this table decoration to hold your knife, fork and spoon on the dinner table. They just need some stitching on the edge and maybe some tatting added. What do you think? The only thing is to make sure that my guests don`t think they are for them to take. They are just for decorating!!!

Well time to go and get back to work

Tatfully Yours Kelly
