A Crafty Update

What have I been up to? Humm…. Well I’ve been working on my daughters scarf off and on. I have that almost finished. I completed a dishcloth last night that I came across. I had forgotten I had started it a while back. hehe And I have about three feet of hen and chicks tatted lace edging done. I don’t know how long I’m going to make it. I figure I’ll just keep working on it until I decide I have enough. I was thinking it would be nice to put it on either my bedroom curtains, living room curtains, or maybe the bottom of a couple of shirts or a dress.
I got a couple of crafty gifts for Christmas. My cousin gave me a 2008 Knitting Pattern-a-Day Calendar and a friend of mine sent me a little mini lunch box (about three inches wide and two and a half inches high) it was full of home made candy. I gave the candy to DH and the kids and have been using the little box to keep my tatted lace in. I really like both of my gifts. I’ll post a picture when I get a chance.

mock picots and split rings

I’m switching back and fourth working on my daughters scarf for a little while then practicing my tatting. So far I’ve learned how to do two new things with the tatting. I’ve added being able to do mock picots and split rings to my tatting arsonal. hehe. I’m pretty happy about it.  I’ve now moved beyond my little tatted star and I’m working on a more complicated snowflake. I’m going to try to make as many of these as I can before Christmas (I want to give a few away) I’ll post a picture as soon as I finish this one so you guys can see. 🙂
