Baubles Bugs and Blossoms

Hard to believe  it has been almost two years scents I have posted anything.
I have been tatting just have had a lot of yard work to get done. Had to have the last part of the driveway done and just finished cleaning up around it now need to add some more dirt along the edges.
Here are most of the Baubles, Bugs  and Blossoms I did from The Shuttle Brothers book. I know I will do some of then again. Now if they would just do another book to keep me busy  this winter. I do have a lot of tatting books sometimes I just need a change for something different.
 I had just the mice laid out to take a picture then I picked up my great grandson from school and when I came in later to take a picture he had  got the others out and rearranged  them all again.
So just took the picture as it was or I would of never  gotten it done. He also decided he want the bee and wooly worm.

The story behind the black one is when I went to pull weed out of the flower beds this spring I have a Gnome  in one when I picked it up a black mouse had been using it for a place to live. It is now on the concrete and going to stay there.
Hope everyone has a great week.

Candy / Giveaway: Patchwork HAND BAGS and dyed cotton thread!

  No time to post for a while. Now that fall is here outside work is slowing down. Had to scrap and paint windows and I have a lot of them only about 32. Plus the yard work and still have a ton to get done outside. Then I will start on the inside but I am going to take it one room at a time. Do get to tat a little in the morning while waiting on my Great Grandson to get here so I can fix him breakfast and take him to school by 8 each morning.

Now Thanksgiving is this week and have that to get ready for and do all of the cooking. House will be full again this year.  Hope I will have more time to post some tatting before to long.

TIAS Goat, Roses, Heart and Tree

Here is my TIAS love Jane goat.

Here is Jane's Tree and one of her hearts. I love Victats rose pattern, they work up so easy.
Now for the weather, strange winter we have had. I went out to walk the dog a couple of days ago and the flower pot by the front steps had a pansy blooming in it. These were planted last spring. Didn't clean out the flower pots because I am going to empty them and put in new soil. So they have lived though snow, freezing temp, ice and freezing rain.
I do have other tatting but it needs to be blocked which I am going to go and do after this.
Have a great day.
