Workbasket from Sherry Mondo Monday Giveaway

Look what came in the mail yesterday. The workbasket magazine I won from Sherry Mondo Monday giveaway. Thanks Sherry. I thought since she had to mail the Workbasket, I might as well order some more thread. Did some of my Christmas shopping. I love the thread and workbasket.

Check Spelling I have been tatting. I did Mark Myers Holly and Berries ant his Christmas stocking. Love working Mark's two patterns.
I also did Jane's Eborall Snowman Great grandson wanted it not sure what he is going to do with it.
A Celtic Maple leaf from Rozella Linden (Ruth Perry's) book Celtic Tatted Leaves and Flowers. Tatted with Marilee Rockley (Yarnplayer) Suger Maple Thread.

OK This also came in the mail yesterday. To of Heather ( The Tarnished Tatter) shuttles and the thread. Love the shuttles they are very light.

Aracin and Boomer

Just want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. This is my Great Grandson Aracin and his dog Boomer. It took him for ever to get the dog to leave on the reindeer ears on. He is the one who plays with my tatting. I have been tatting and just don't have the time to post it right now.
Right now I need to mix up some peanut butter cookies up so he can bake them tonight. As you can see the coffee table is a mess, he likes to drew a lot and that is where he like to do it.

Lots of Snow

No tatting for now but we do have lots and lots of snow. This is from the front deck. I know there is a street out there. It is still snowing and starting to blow it all around. Nothing much is moving here. No bus's, cabs. a lot of business are shut down.
Here is what it look like from our front deck this is out driveway. So you know what I am going to be doing later tonight after it quits snowing. The fence is 4 ft. high so going to take a while to move all of the snow. Since he had surgery (hope that is spelled right) he cannot help with it. I am afred he will rip out his stichs.
I hope everyone else who lives in the rest of Iowa and anywhere else who is getting this snow storm is doing ok.
I do have a question. I brought a tatting book in the middle of Nov. which has never arrived. I have e-mailed her twice about it and have not heard back from her. Should I e-mail her again, before I contact paypal about getting it resolved?
I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas
