I'm here, I'm here!!!!

Hello Everyone!!! Yes I'm still here. Been very busy with projects and helping with a friend who ended up in hospital will kidney stones. Ouch!!!

First I must say that I.... (I mean my son) received an A+ on the plant cell project. Yay!!!!!

Last night I was talking to a tatting friend and she was thanking me for a card I sent to her for Spring. It had a garden fence with flowers and a Celtic butterfly on it. And it got me thinking that I did not have anything for St. Patty's Day. So I took the link chain rings from the center of the butterfly and added dimples to them and came up with these Celtic clover leafs. This was the first time I have done dimples. They are made in DMC size 30 and make a nice pair of earrings.

You may think your seeing this again but it is only the center you seeing again. It is from my motif #8. I have taken this and added to it. I added 16 of the mini motifs and added an outer edge to finish is off. I'm very happy how it turned out. Here's hoping my sister-in-law likes it. It's going to be one of her birthday gifts.

What we do for our kids....

Ladies and Gentlemen The Incredible Edible Plant Cell!!!!!! This was my sons science project about the plant cell. The doughnut hole is the nucleus, the icing is the cell wall and the baked outer crust is the cell membrane etc... It was fun doing the project with him. Soon he will be in high school and not need me anymore. OHHHH! Now I'm sad, I think I need to eat some cake!!!LOL

Motif 15 and 16

This is motif #15 made in Alkin Basit size 30 and is pattern called St. Pat. (My favorite) I added 2 row of my own making it about 5 1/4" is size.
This doily is about 8 1/2" in size made from Royal cotton size 30. The pattern is from the book called "The Tatter's Treasure Chest". I did a few extra rows to make it larger. I find that I tat with the T.V on and very much lose track of the time but for fun I watched the clock and could not believe that this doily took about 22 hours to do. I could get so much more tatting done if I did not have to sleep at night. LOL. OH WELL!!!!!!!! Later
