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


  1. Your parrot looks great! If the thread is too fine for needle tatting, you could always try shuttle tatting. ; )

    I love Marilee's threads! All of her colors are gorgeous.

    I hope your knee heals quickly!

    1. Are you now joining forces with Jane? I may have to surrender!! ;)))

  2. Wonderful parrot!! :)
    Have fun with the new supplies!

  3. Sorry to hear about your knee. Here's hoping with will heal quickly!

  4. Well done with the parrot. He's great. Now with those lovely fine threads may I recommend a shuttle?!?!?? Darn, bumped my head as I ducked under the keyboard.
    SO sorry to hear about your fall and I do hope the resume went through OK. I love Marilee's garden afternoon - it's one of my favourites.

  5. I could say you should take more water with it but I have also hurt my knee too, I can't get appointment to see the doctor until next week, if it gets worse I will go to the hospital, see if they will sort it out,

    Lovely bird and well done on doing it in needle tatting.


  6. You did not NEED to do that to your poor leg! Kelly, be careful! NN sends healing vibes...

    Lovely, beautiful parrot! So pretty. And needle tatted too!
