So a week or so ago I had to have a little chat with my 80-year old mother. I told her that her birthday was over and she needed to get back to work. Summertime was not just for baseball and lolly-gagging in her garden...I needed her to tat! :)
Okay, you all know me well enough - I love my mom and that's not how the conversation went! She's been busy enjoying herself. She loves legion baseball and she loves tending to her small vegetable garden and taking care of the numerous scattered flower pots in her yard. Fortunately for me, its been really warm here in MN and she's been spending more time inside, and she's been tatting. Bonus for me. Look at these little treasures that she dropped off the other day:
These medallions are smaller than some of the others she's made for me in the past and so rather than pincushions we have petite size tartlets!
I told her it was going to be hot for a few more days and she should really stay inside and stay cool. After all, I'm just looking out for her well-being, and it wouldn't hurt if she tatted a little bit more, right? (For those of you who know my mother, you know this is like talking to a brick wall. She will do as she pleases!)
Here's another plate of them that I made a couple weeks ago - these have been gifted to some friends.
I have some larger medallions from her that are waiting to be transformed into larger pincushions. Will post pictures of those too when they are complete!
My "I Sigh Not For Beauty" finish is so close I can taste it. There's going to be a big celebration this weekend I think.
Thanks for stopping by!
