Not Much to Share

I've been in a bit of a slump lately; but I did finish my ornament for Amy (May's recipient!) this week. As soon as she receives it, I will post photos.

I thought some of you might appreciate seeing some of the tatting I received from my mother for Mother's Day. She tatted this purple heart and this multi colored bookmark. She said that the thread used for the bookmark is called "jelly bean." As you can see, she's into using buttons with her tatting!


Spent some time yesterday and today cleaning through my stash. Ugh! I've posted a list of some patterns that I am willing to trade or sell. Many of them have never been used; a few of them are gently used. Shoot me an email if you are interested. The list is posted here.

Hope you all are having a great weekend.

I just learned how to tat a couple of months ago and I just love these. I've never seen buttons used in tatting - such a neat idea.
You're so lucky to have someone who can show you how to do this beautiful craft.
