...And she shall have tatting wherever she goes

I did a little shopping the other day and 'lo and behold' I come up with a tatting project. I bought a new blouse at Maurices (my most favorite store!) that is a deep magenta/burgundy. So I'm driving home it popped into my mind that I HAVE TATTING THREAD IN THE SAME COLOR AS THAT SHIRT!!!!!! I could hardly wait to make something to go with the shirt! A necklace? A flower to put in my hair? I decieded to make earrings to match. I revamped a pattern for an edging and ta-da! I like 'em and can't wait until I can wear them.

Break has be positively lovely.The landscape has been covered in snow and the sun is out most of the time. This morning we had freezing fog. Everything was covered in a half an inch of light white frost :) Sooo pretty. My sister and I have also been  enjoying the time outside with our herd of horses. But when we do come inside there are carols on the radio or my sister and I will play the piano. Maybe I'll have to post about that piano; just like everything in our house, it has a story. Life from my view is beautiful. Not to mention that Christmas is in two days and Douglas is coming for a visit!!

I also found a new bookmark pattern that I can't wait to try. It's from Be* and has flowers! Click HERE to view the pattern I'm planning on playing with color combos during the holidays. Plus, they make quick, last minute gifts!

Blessings to you all and enjoy this Wonderful Wednesday!
