I did it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Everyone

I did it!!! I finished Janes TIAS. He turned out pretty good if I may say so.

Next up...this is some silk thread a got from a raffle basket I won last September that the Fridges "Fall into Tatting" weekend in Cambridge Ontario. I didn't know what I was going to make with it until I purchased "Tea is for Tatting" book by Martha Ess.

I made this Tiny Square Teapot from her book. I have not decided which one I will make next. I really liked how the center of this is done. Not the way I thought it would until I started it. Cool!!!!

Happy Tatting Everyone

Let's see if I have everything....

Hi Everyone

I think I have everything for a perfect day of tatting.

Let's see..... Husband at work.........check
Son at school.................check
Cup of tea......................check
And my jammies on....check

All looks good to go. LOL As you can see I have caught up and now have completed up to Day 10 of the TIAS. And I am looking forward to Wednesday. I did have a little trouble with the colour changes in Day 8 but I think it has turned out OK.

I am also working on a bracelet to wear on Saturday when a friend and I are going to a Jann Arden concert. I can't wait. She is a wonderful singer and song writer. You can see and hear her music on this site The Official Website of Jann Arden. Do enjoy.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Day 7 and going strong


It is almost the end of the week and I can't wait!!! I do not have any work hours for Monday or Tuesday so I am hoping to get some tatting done and have a p.j. day. Love having days off in a row.

I got the chance to finish Day 7 and can't wait for Day 8.
I have some ideas about what we are making but I am not going to guess.

Tat on.

TIAS Day 1

Hi Everyone

I know I'm a little late posting my TIAS that Jane is doing. I find that when I get a day off in the week all I do is housework and no tatting. I'll have to work on that!!!

Here is my Day 1 entry.

Really looking forward to Day 2.

Tat on.

It's been such a long time....

I think there is a song with these word in them. Boston I think!!! But, it has been a long time between postings. We have been having trouble with our internet supplier, but I'm back now so look out.

I hope everyone in Tat Land had a good holiday and a great New Years. For New Years I'm one of those who end up in bed asleep at 10:00 pm on the 31st. No party animal am I. This year I made it to 10:30 Woo Hoo.

The big gift I received this year was 2 tickets to a Jann Arden concert. I told my hubby not to buy tickets because the only ones we can get put me in the upper levels and that show is hard to see from there. But does he listen to me. Noooooooooooooooooo. He purchased tickets off site and paid alot more but got seats on the floor. 2nd row centre left!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can wait.

I have also been doing some tatting this holiday. This braclet I just finished today and had to share with you. I'm not going to take credit for this pattern because I'm sure someone, somewhere has already made something like this in the past. It took a little longer to make but I really would like to slow down this year, when making thing. I push myself and then it is done and I am left thinking what is next. I need to enjoy the journey of making things then rushing them.

I'm going to be wearing this at a family wedding later this year. Maybe I'll come up with some earrings to go with them. Later.

Tat care.
