What would you been doing?

Hello All

What would you be doing on a wintery day like this?

I was a good girl and got all my running around jobs done before this wintery weather started today! I had to drive into town and take care of my girlfriends and my parents cats; as they are all away on a vacation.

I`m starting to think that these two lazy fur balls may have the right idea. (It is not often that the dog shares her bed with the cat!) But before I could make my plans for the rest of the day, I had some cooking to do. So I got the slow cooker out and put on a big batch a beans to cook for the day.

I could pick up and work on the table runner. It is coming along nicely and is a great project to start and stop if you like. Or maybe I`ll work on some hearts or a bookmark or two!?!

I have finished my exchange piece for the Fringe! The theme for this year is ``Knotty Tatters`` and for the first exchange of the year we called it ``Hanky Panky``!!! I am mailing mine to the UK but do not know where I`m receiving one from. That`s the funny of it all.

Well I better stir the beans and get tatting!! The ankle is coming along well and I have an appointment on Monday with the doctor!
Keep warm!!

Hello and Happy New Year

Good morning to all in Tat Land!!!

I know it has been a while between blogs but I am finding that the more time I have on my hands; the less I get done!!! Things will be getting better now that hubby and son are now gone all day!!
I made through the holiday season with only a few set backs. Once I was moving well with the walker boot I thought I could do anything and everything. But I learned quickly that if I baked 11 dozen cookies in a day, on a ceramic floor, that I will be in bed for most for the next day!!! I also had to learn that if it didn`t get done in time for Christmas it wasn`t going to get done!! That was the hardest thing for me to learn!!

We had a nice quick holiday over all!!

Here is a picture of what I am wearing on my ankle around the house. It starts out lose and comfortable in the morning but by dinner time I am ready to ripe it off.

When I go outside (if it is snowy or icy) I wear the walker boot. But luckly the winter weather has not been too bad here is southern Ontario. Which has been great for me and getting around.

I have been doing some tatting! The little motif in this piece is from ``Tatting Patterns and Designs`` by Gun Blomqvist and Elwy Persson. I decided to join them and see what I could come up with!! I`m using size 30 thread but I`m not sure who made it.

And lastly here is a picture of my coffee table in the living room. It is starting to get filled up with my tatting, which is not a bad thing.

And yes I am as surprised as you are!!! I have not yet killed my Christmas flower!!! Amazing isn`t it!!!!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and get a lot of tatting done this New Year.
