 I know I look like a slacker since I haven't been blogging, but I have been busy!

I worked on test tatting a new Ice Drop pattern for Lynne Urwin this week. As you can see, I really messed up! I hope to give it another try this weekend.

Since I had thread on my shuttle, I decided to start Curds & Whey from Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior. I love this pattern!

When sorting out my tatting bag, I found this Ice Drop almost finished. I really have no idea how long I've been carrying it around. At least it's finished now!

I've been busy making lavender eye pillows.

I've decided that the proceeds will benefit the Grant Park Drama Club. They're badly in need of new stage curtains. I sure do hope the kids get to put on a play this year!


  1. I figured you were busy!!! :)
    I don't think that test tatted Ice Drop is messed up, it's a one of a kind. ;) It makes me think of a beautiful head of lettuce growing in a great garden. ;)
    And that bookmark is fabulous!!! :)
    And your red Ice Drop is great!! :)
    And wow!!! to all those wonderful lavender pillows-great colors!! :)

  2. Curds and Whey is so good. One of the best patterns ever.

  3. I have not tatted Curds and Whey - will have to give it a shot. Tatting is another thing that coronavirus has brought back to the fore for me. And I love the lavender eye pillows - are they willing to ship them to buyers (will pay shipping)?

    1. Curds and Whey is a fun tat, and I always feel like I'm making something extra special! Yes, I am willing to ship them. I'm asking $10 for one pillow with pillowcase. Extra pillowcases are $2 each. I'm using up stash fabric, so it's pretty much what-you-see-is-what-you get.


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
