It's begining to look a lot like Christmas...

Wow What a great week of craft sales!!! I was able to help my girlfriend out a few days of the sale and made about $90.00 over the week. Not to bad. It is money I didn't have before!!!! That was by selling snowflake and a few doilies with some bookmarks. The best part was talking to people about tatting. One dear lady who can no longer work with fine threads was so happy to see the tatting that she returned one day and gave me 2 large bags of crochet cotton thread. She did not have anyone in her family who would use the thread and was happy to give it to me!!! To my surprise there was a great number of size 20 and size 30 threads in the collection!!! I'll take a picture of the threads and post it a little later.

The guild is doing a Winter Frolic tatting exchange and the dead line for having your item to the sender is not until January 2010. The lady who received my name didn't let any snow get under her feet!!!LOL I received my tatted item November 30. I still have not decided what I'm going to send to my exchange name. This tatted snowflake came to me from Nova Scotia and it is a pattern by Jane Edorall. I'm very lucky!!!!!
Well that is all for now. I am picking up an order from Handy Hands that my sister brought back from the U.S. tomorrow so I'll include pictures of the order also later.

Tat on.


  1. Ooh, I love that snowflake! Those red beads are so cheery and Christmas-y. Congrats on the little windfall of cash. One of these days, I AM going to do a craft show and it will be all tatted items.

    Next year, I am going to try to make the Fringe Elements Tat Day. The Windsor Tunnel and the Ambassador Bridge are only fifteen minutes from where I live, so it should be a breeze to get there. *crosses fingers*

  2. I so glad things went well at the craft show. It's always exciting to see that others appreciate what you have done by buying them! And the extra cash is always welcome! I love it when people ask about tatting. The snowflakes look great.

  3. YAY! Christmastime and tatted snowflakes! WOO HOO! Two of my favorite things slammed together! I ♥ it!

    Your snowflake is lovely, my dear!

  4. Congratulations on making the extra $$$ Whoo Hoo!
