The last color

This is the last color in my box of buttons. I do have another box of smaller buttons. Maybe I'll tat up a few of those.

I finished Dylan's hat today. Now it's time to start Shelby's!

A hat for Adam


Adam was in second grade when I started teaching. His daughter is now a sophomore in high school. Where does the time go? When Adam saw Neal's hat, he teased that he wanted one. I think he'll be surprised when his daughter takes it home!

This is the next to the last color in the button box. I'm already thinking ahead to what I'll be working on next!

Sisters, day 2


Janet, Mom, and I had another wonderful day together. With all the talking we did, I only managed to finish one ornament. More to come!

Saturday, February 4, 2023



My sister Janet came to visit for the weekend. So far we've spent a lot of time reminiscing with Mom, but we've also done a little shopping and a little dining out. Sisters are truly lifelong friends. We share memories that no one else has of our childhoods, and there are so many wonderful memories!

Believe it or not, I even found a little time for tatting!

Day off


Mom wasn't feeling up to shopping and lunch today, so we decided to postpone. It really was a very low key day, and the only thing I managed to accomplish was making one button ornament.

White on white sure looks nice!

Black, white, and grey


Brooke wanted a grey hat. I'm not fond of grey, but this one wasn't too bad. It doesn't show well in the picture, but it's a combination of three shades of grey.

Today's button was black and I almost didn't use it. The white and black are striking, but not my favorite. 

I don't have to work tomorrow, so Mom and I are planning a trip to Hobby Lobby as well as lunch out. It should be a fun day!

Another ornament and hat


Today's button ornament is another shade of yellow. I think it's pretty!

I finished a new hat for Leticia today. The last one was way too big for her. This one fits perfectly!
