I`m in love.....

 Good Morning Friends

Yes!!! It is true.....I`m in love!!!
With Marilee Rockleys Small Maple Leaf pattern. I purchased it from her on line store and I can tell already that my whole day will be spent tatting these little guys up!!

The larger one is done is Karey`s HDT in size 20 and the smaller one is done in Altin Basak (50) thread with white seed beads. I`m going to be making earrings out of the smaller ones. They measure 3/4 `` wide and 1 1/2 long. I`m going to be ready for Canada Day this year!!! (July 1st)

 Next is Janes tatted Red Eye Tree frog. I tatted him in size 20 Lizbeth thread. Being a needle tatter I have to do some things differently but he came out pretty cute.

That all is all for now. I will have to put the tatting down but for only a little while today, so I can apply for a new job listing I found. Wish me luck!!

Tat to you later,
Tatfully Yours

What I have been up to!!!!

 Hello All

This is my first entry with the new blogger layout. So I am not counting on this being easy.

First I have the Italian doily I have been working on. I could not believe I had to have Karey send me more of her beautiful HDT. I have gone through 2 1/2 skeins of ``Sunset on .Seneca lake`` in size 20. But at last it is done!!! It measures 16`` cross! This is the largest doily I have done. And I understand that she does not have any more of this colour in stock. Boy was I lucky to get enough to finish this piece.

And while I was waiting for the extra thread to arrive..... I did the same pattern but this time in a lovely yellow from DMC Cebelia size 30. This doily turned out to be about 14`` wide. I am thinking of putting it away for my mom for her next birthday!!

We have been busy with the gardens and yard work lately. And I am still looking for work but there is not much out there.

Well I must go. I have to clean up my craft room and then decided what my next project will be.

Take care and I`ll tat you to later,
