Busy busy!!

Hello all

I have busy as usual with many things!! My sons toe is looking better and he got a clean big of health after having his bone scan done. I am glad that is over with. Then we had the semi-formal to be ready for, and all went well there too. I have been doing some paper work for the Fringe and going to meets. But now all that is behind me and I am ready to tat!!

Here I have a couple of crosses made in Alkin Basak size (50) 30 thread and DMC Cebelia size 20. The patterns is from Roger at Needle Tatting site. I really liked this pattern and will be doing more crosses soon.

This is the cross pattern with a little change here and a little change there to make it a snowflake. This is made in size 20 DMC Cebelia.

When I first saw Mirandas, of Tatting Fool blog, pattern for a cardinal I could not wait to tat him!! I just had to e-mail her and she sent it to me. The big reason I wanted to make him was because of my boss!!
My boss lost her husband over 5 years ago and shortly after he died we started to be followed by a cardinal. And even now if we have been talking about Brian; then we go outside sure enough there is a cardinal singing or sitting near by.

I tatted him in size 10 South Maid. Great pattern!!

Well I am off work today and if I`m a good girl and get some house work done, I will let myself to some tatting today!

Hope all is well in your part of Tat Land!!
Tatfully Yours
