Having fun!

Today was laundry day. It may sound strange, but I really enjoy doing laundry. My morning is automatically divided into chunks of time, and I like to set goals for those chunks. Sometimes it's cleaning, and sometimes it's crafting. Today it was a bit of both.

My plan was to tat just one Eightsome Reel motif for my sister-in-law's runner.

Sometimes plans are meant to be changed!

Because I tatted two Eightsome Reel motifs, I only had time for four Ice Drops.

I don't know if you can see this little cat charm or not, but it's really cute!

The Rainbow Taffy thread is so cheerful!

All of the charms I used today are from a pack of 100 assorted charms I found on Amazon.

I love the dove!

This cute little owl made me smile!

Daughter Alison and kids are coming down to visit tomorrow, so I don't think I'll be doing much tatting. It's a good thing I had plenty of time to tat today!


  1. Your eightsome looks great! Pretty rainbow thread and those charms!

  2. Such charming charms ! Have you considered embellishing them with tatting like Marie does ?

    1. Yes. Unfortunately, I had given away all my tiny flowers to a friend for scrapbooking. I've been using up the bits on my shuttles as I finish Ice Drops, but I don't have much to work with yet. Of course I could do something really bold and tat flowers just for my Ice Drops! ;-)

  3. Making good progress on the runner.

  4. Beautiful ice drops love the charms
    You are making great progress on the runner. Love the colour better than the green

  5. Charming icedrops!(sorry, couldn't resist the pun) Enjoy the family visit.

  6. Wow! Seems like you accomplished quite a bit!! :)
    All the tatting looks fabulous as usual!!! :)


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
