Candy Is Having a Giveaway & other

Here is a link

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.

Shuttle and thread, and peacock, Dollie, bracelet.

I have been trying to post all week. Painters came to paint the eves, then my brother came through taking a load to Salt Lake. He drives a semi and when not doing that he hangs iron.  He lives in Idaho on top of a mountain.
 So here is part of what I have tatted.  Hope to post more often.
This is the shuttle that I won from Mary Joseph Donohue.
she also sent me some thread and beads.
This is the package I received this morning from Jane McLellan.

Here is my peacock from Occhi Schiffchenspitze, Frivolite. Which the tail drove me crazy didn't have far to go. 

This is Nancy Tracy's Dollie

This is Jane McLellan bracelet. This I gave to my cousin Jenny along with a tatting shuttle.
Showed her the  how to do a ring and tryed to make sure she know how to get the stich to flip.

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.
