Some of you know or may have noticed I have not been blogging much lately. For someone who is not working and at home much of the time I should have loads of tatting done to share with you. But I don`t. Just been in the dumps lately!
But things are starting to look up!
Hubby`s side of the family is on the grow. First his niece had a baby girl a couple of weeks ago and a nephew`s girlfriend is do in 3 months.
So I have picked up my crochet hooks and knitting needles and started making some gifts for the new arrivals.
Next, I was able to buy this book from ebay the other week and have tatted a doily from it. I used some hand dyed thread in size 20 that I picked up from Karey Solomon called ``Willows by the water``.
I am really enjoying working with HDT`s. My hubby has let me buy my own birthday gifts this year, so placed an order with Lady Shuttle Maker for some of her threads and a hook pin. The only thing is, it will arrive well before my birthday at the end of March. I wonder if hubby will let me open my gifts early? But if I get to the mail first.....what he doesn`t know won`t hurt him!!! ;))))
And much to my surprise I also won some more HDT`s from a wonderful giveaway that Yarnplayer was doing. Not just threads are coming but a beautiful hand made necklace pendent and bracelet. Thank you Marilee!!!
So with a good report from the surgeon on my recovery and being busy looking for a new job; things are starting to look up!
The sun is shining and I feel I need a big cup of tea. I will go now.
Blog to you later.
