 Hello to everyone in Tat-Land

I have been busy making these jewelry sets to sell this week!! I`m only showing this one as it is the only one I kept for myself!! It is done in another of Karey`s beautiful HDT in size 20. In total I did 15 sets. The others were done in a number of lovely Lizbeth threads!!

 The pattern is Krystledawne`s ``Spanish Dancer`` that I helped test tat a while ago!!

 This is what is in the middles are these pieces!! The larger ring is about 1/2`` across and the smaller is only 1/4`` across. I just needed to do less repeats for the earrings.

I`m hoping they sell well as I am putting the money away for this weekend. Our annual ``Water Front Festival`` is this weekend; with art tents, craft tent, a market place and mid way rides. I usually can pick up some birthday gift while I am there and sometimes something for me!!!

Must run now.....housework is a-waiting!!

Tat to you soon

The good with the bad!!!!

 Hello All

I hope everyone is having a better day then me!!!!
But first some good stuff!!

Here is Janes`wonderful new pattern. She challenged me to try him out seeing that I am needle tatting and sometimes things don`t always work out. But this guy did!!! He measures about 3`` long and was tatted in Altin Basak threads.

And it is always good when you get mail that has threads in it!!! Above is some threads Diane that Lace loven Liberian sent to me to try out!! I don`t know..... they are really fine.Thanks Diane!!!

Also in yesterdays mail my order from Marilee Rockley arrived!!! I really  love her HDT. I ordered Garden Afternoon in both size 30 and 40.
Now for the bad!!! You know that the day is not going to go well when in the wee hours of the morning you get up and trip over the dog and land on your knee. And of course this knee is on the same leg that your ankle was operated on 7 months ago!!!!

Good news that I did not re-injure the ankle. The knee took the full landing!!! Boy it hurts!!
Then while I was about to e-mail a resume in for a new job the hydro goes out just as I pushed send!!! 

I have to go and do some errands but I promise I will be very careful driving out there today!!

Tat to you later
