While Dave's been busy making ravioli, I've been busy tatting! I can hardly believe that I'm half way around. With company coming, I'm pretty sure I won't finish by Christmas, but it might be pretty close!

Mom was doing some organizing and found this picture of my sisters and me. From left to right... Janet, Diane, Lisa. I'm guessing that I was about 9 years old at the time. Janet's a year and half younger than me, Lisa is 4 years younger than me. Good times!

Carol, Bella, and Dave were busy making ravioli yesterday. Dave is working on his own today. I'm still coughing from bronchitis, so I'm not allowed in the kitchen.

Following tradition, Dave made fatties (fried ravioli dough) for dinner last night. Yum! I'm really glad to have holiday traditions from both of our families!


  1. Yummy food! And pretty pretty doily. That is going to be your pride when it's complete.

  2. You have not changed one bit - just cut off those bunches! : ))

  3. Less time in the kitchen equals more tatting! Love the photo of you and your sisters.

  4. Nice to have someone cooking while you tat, lovely photo of you and your sisters, I never had any sisters something I would have loved, I hope you still enjoy their company when ever possible

  5. Diane Dear I am sorry you are sick and I wish you Speedy Healing. Your giant doily is beyond beautiful and it is truly an Heirloom Masterpiece. Homemade Ravioli equals YUM! Merry Christmas to you and yours...

  6. Your doily is such a work of art!!! :)
    Praying for you to heal before the holiday!!! :)

  7. Your latest tatted doily looks absolutely fantastic!! What a treasure this will be. I've never had homemade ravioli - sounds delicious though. Have a very Merry Christmas :)

  8. I've never had fatties, they look good. Your master piece is gorgeous. Which book is it from?

  9. The doily is breathtakingly beautiful, and you're in the home stretch!

    Great photo of you and your sisters - possibly going to school in those sweet dresses. No 'dress code' necessary back then!

    I'm sure you're having a busy and fun time with family. I know you'll still find time to tat! Sending wishes for a Happy Holiday Season!


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
