Motif #8 & Tatting Tea Tuesday


Wow! The past week is pretty much a blurrrrr. House guests arrived on Wed knowing they wouldn't be able to make it for Christmas day if they didn't get on the roads then. It began snowing Wed night, & we were snowed in until Sun. Out of town guests couldn't leave for home until Sun because of snow drifted roads between Lincoln & the towns they lived in. I made a trip out on Christmas day to get my step-son, then a return trip to take him home (inside the city.) That was the last trip out for 48 hours as the streets weren't being cleared. Wed thru Sun is a blurr of cooking, serving up food, cleaning up, etc.

Well, that's all passed now. I finally got the out of town gifts to the PO today!! Sheesh!!

Tatting Tea Tuesday has been a most appreciated, blessedly quiet day! I finished the edging for the hanky last night, & I sewed it on today. My first hanky with tatted edging! This evening, I'll choose thread for the next hanky. The edging is a generic clover leaf pattern that I tweaked a bit. The thread is Lizbeth size 40 in Caribbean.

I'm sure it must have been fun having company, but you must be EXHAUSTED!!! Good for you picking up a needle today - I think I would be staring at the TV, mindlessly switching channels with some kind of crumbs dribbling down the front of my PJs.

Your first hanky is BEAUTIFUL! The colors of the thread compliments the hanky's rose perfectly!

Congratulations on completing your first hanky. It looks fantastic! I must agree with sewmuchfun4, LB Caribbean compliments the hanky's rose so perfectly. Well done, well done.

Thank you so much for contributing to Tatting Tea Tuesday in 2009. Your participation helped mold it into the joyful, fun event it grew to be.

Happy tatting in 2010!
