I'm still busy working on my last Christmas afghan, but I've also been carrying tatting with me and working on it when I can. The blue Ice Drop is a Swarovski rivoli and 12 wt Sulky cotton #712-1293. I love the shade of blue! The red Ice Drop is a compass charm and DMC size 80. The thread covers up the compass points, but highlights the compass lines. I think it looks pretty cool!

Several of us retired teachers got together at our friend Peggy's this afternoon. We all taught together for many years. I'm not sure of the retirement order, but I think Judy (3rd grade) was first, followed by Peggy (5th grade),  Marilynn (2nd grade), Pam (4th grade), Robyn (1st grade), me (elementary library and computer), and then Edna (kindergarten). Gosh! That covers all the grades! There were others we taught with who were unable to attend. We would have loved to have them with us; still, we had a great time together!


  1. Love those ice drops, colours are really intense. Good to get together!

  2. Very beautiful Ice Drops!! :)
    Looks like a wonderful group of teachers!!! :)

  3. I've lost track of all the patterns you use for the ice drops! Very pretty blue and red threads. Always like the way the bottlecaps add bling to the design.

    Glad you enjoyed your reunion. Lots of memories to share and how things have changed. Of course, you're not quite totally retired!

    I'm anxious to hear about the girls' reactions to their pendants!

  4. Two beautiful ice drops, I love the red one


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
