No time for tatting!
Not much anyway! I've been busy making baby quilts, flannel blankets, and baby hats for daughter Andrea's baby, due in September. I have three flannel blankets to go, and a tooth fairy pillow for Lily.
As far as tatting goes, I have about 2 repeats left of Cornelia, but I'm running out of Citrus LIMON. Luckily, Sherry's going to dye some more for me!
I received Fortune from Marilee... oh, what lovely colors blended together! They don't look very nice in this scan (I think my scanner is on its last leg), but if you go to Marilee's Etsy shop, you'll see how beautiful this thread is! As soon as my order arrived, I wound the skeins on to floss bobbins. I'll work on the crosses while I'm at Mom's. I think I'll probably work on some bookmarks while I'm there too, since they're so easy to finish and so very pretty!
I'm getting very excited about my trip to Alabama! I leave in a week and a half, and I'll be at Mom's for two weeks. Thank goodness for air conditioning... I'd never be able to stand the heat and humidity!
