First day of school

Today was the first day with students! Yes, I've attended meetings the past two days, but those don't count. It was great to see the kids again!

I did my best to get back on track with my goals today. My first goal was to finish the third motif of my Eightsome Reel doily, pattern by Mary Konior. I love my new shuttle from Rita Richmond of Shuttle by Design!

I started another Ice Drop before leaving for school, but I had to wait until I returned home to finish it. My other big accomplishment was completing my 10,000 steps before I left for school!

Our friend Ann stopped by this afternoon. Ann is in her 80s, and she is one of the most energetic people I have ever met. She brought this cute little crocheted flower basket and asked if I could make a tatted version.

I'm really not a designer, and I'm hoping there is a pattern that would work somewhere out there. If you know of one, please let me know!


  1. Already loving your Eightsome Reel Doily!!! :)
    Glad you had a good first day!! Our granddaughters get to wait until after Labor Day to start school this year.

    1. My Minnesota grandchildren also start after Labor Day. I remember that we thought it was so weird when we moved to Illinois from Philadelphia. Who starts school in August? Illinoisans!

    2. Most of the schools in the southern states start in August. My son started on the 12th. But he will get out of school about the second week of May. I grew up in Maryland and we didn't start until after Labor Day. I'm guessing our earlier start down here has to do with when we were mostly an agricultural economy.

  2. I like that basket! I see a tatted version. Maybe like the basket in one of my books. Must look it up soon!


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
