Just a little musing...

I had to empty my shuttles for a fun up-coming project (that I'm keeping a secret until I'm finished) so I looked through all my books and found some fun patterns that only require one shuttle. I made three little medallions with variegated threads that where all rings and Josephine rings. They're cute and will make fun little snowflakes or flowers. My wonderful job and gardening outside at home has been keeping me super busy. A good kind of busy, but I do miss tatting. So last night my family and I watched a movie and I got to sit and work on my project :) Pure Bliss! Oh and I brought my tatting to work the other day and got to tat during my lunch break! A fellow co-worker and I got to talking about tatting and crochet. It never ceases to amaze me how tatting is such a conversation starter!
Have a great evening everyone!


I ordered a custom pair of earrings from KrystleDawne Fine Lace Jewelry and oh my goodness are they STUNNING! She also has a BLOG. Be sure to check out this incredibly talented tatting artist! I've bought a pattern of hers on Etsy as well. Highly recommend her! Krystle has some stunning pieces!! Thanks for the earrings Krystle!!

These earrings also match a favorite dress of mine that I hopefully get to wear to a friends wedding this summer...a perfect match! Can't wait!
Be Blessed!

The joys of gardening...

So I started a new job at a local garden center/florist and I am soo loving it. The people are just great; I love working with every one of them, which is a huge blessing in the workplace. God is good. There are different tasks to go everyday, from planting containers and mixed baskets, watering plants, moving Shrubs and trees, shaping, pinching, removing early flowers, the list goes forever on. Oh, it's so fun. The only downside to this amazing job is that I come home every day with very dirty hands and that doesn't mix too well with pretty white thread. Needless to say, I haven't been tatting a whole lot. But I'm thinking about what patterns and colors I'll be using this spring. Hope the weather is fine and dandy where this quick blog post finds you.
Be Blessed!

P.S. I have a new gardening blog that documents all of the crazy experiments at home and what I've learned from school! Check it out at The Garden's Path Blog.
