Thanksgiving Monday...

Well, what does one do, on holiday Monday, after eating too much turkey on Sunday?!?

Tat of course!!!!!!

When I first laid my eyes on this Lizbeth thread called Autumn Spice (size 20), I knew what pattern I wanted to do with it! Mary Konior`s Spinning Wheel glass mat from her book Tatting with Visual Patterns!! It measures about 5 inches across.

Next up we have a little crochet piece I saved. It came to me from an older lady who wanted me to finish the larger piece for a table cloth. She gave me all her crochet threads and said I could do what I liked with it. Little did she know her daughter wanted to larger piece because her mother had done it and did not care if it was finished but just cleaned up a little. So I carefully cut away some of the unfinished work and was able to leave her with a table cloth about 4`x4`. I got this little piece (15 inches x 18 inches) and finished the edges for a table mat for my dinning table!!

So that is what I did with my Monday off. Not to bad!! And you are right if you guessed we will be having left over turkey for dinner tonight!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving from Canada!!!

Tatfully Yours Kelly
