What I have been up to!!

Hello to all in Tat Land!!!

I have been busy tatting this week after my wonderful weekend away from home!! We did a lot of shopping and talking! It is always good to get away from time to time!!

First I have something that just arrived in the mail on Wednesday. My exchange item for the ``Knotty Tatters`` the Fringe Tatters Group is doing!! This first exchange was called Hankie Pankie. I`m now sure if you can see the post mark but it came all the way from Australia!! I love doing these exchanges!!

I am for some reason in jewelry making mode!! I loved making this pendant and earring set from Marilee Rockley book ``Up and Tat Em``. I used size 30 threads. The multicolored thread is from Marilee herself from the gift giveaway in won!!

These earrings are a Nancy Tracy pattern done in the same size 30 black thread. I had to change up the pattern to get it to work for a needle tatted but I think they came out pretty good.

Lastly, I did this bracelet for my sister in laws birthday. It is a Kaye Judt pattern she taught a few years ago! I hope my sister in law likes it.

Well must go!! Beagle wants to go for her morning walk and I am starting work on a new doily pattern today. But more on that later.

Tat to you later!! Tatfully Yours

If Spring is coming why am I in a snowball?

Hello Everyone

I will explain my title for this blog!!! With spring coming and my hubby really hating the drywall job that was done on our kitchen ceiling; we decided to wall paper the ceiling so it looks like we have tin up there. So, we had to go looking for the trays to put it up with......(this is where the snowball started) and while looking in the laundry room, hubby starts looking in the cabinets and says ``do we really need all this STUFF!!!``!! Well hours later and two very full garbage bags later the whole laundry room is now clean!

Now, we will be needing help putting up the wall paper so that turned into me cleaning to tops of the kitchen cabinets and fridge!! I also sprayed down the oven last night getting it ready for a good cleaning and of course that will lead to the kitchen floors needing a good hands and knees cleaning!! ( This snowball is getting out of control!!!)

On a sunny note my giveaway prize from Marilee the Yarnplayer arrived today!!

And I was able to pick up a copy of Bead and Button where Marilee is shown with her beautiful tatting!!

Well I`d better get going!! The floors will not clean themselves!! I am hoping the snowball melts this weekend with the nice warm weather we are going to be getting!!

Take care!!!
