I'm really enjoying tatting "Hostess Piece: Placemat" from Mary Konior's Tatting Patterns. Round 5 was very simple, but it took me a long time to complete... I just couldn't stay awake at night this week! It's now 7 1/4" in diameter.
I'm also enjoying the thread (Oren Bayan size 50, color # 066), but I'm not sure where I bought it. I might have purchased it at the lace event in Lafayette, IN last spring.
Youngest daughter Joanne reminded me that pink is her favorite color, and she told me that she loves everything I make. Granddaughter Eva might have competition for this piece!
I'm a retired elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to seven. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. Now that I'm retired, I know I'll never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
