Wanting to do something different. I decided to try some HWT and tat something.
This was a combination of 3 threads-2 quilting threads(pictured below) and a size 80 DMC green which I received from Lace Lovin' Librarian-Diane. I am not crazy about the color combo, but it makes me think of autumn leaves on green grass.
Here are the 2 quilting threads I used.
Here is the combination of the 2 quilting threads without the green in a motif from the book Tatting Patterns and Designs from Gun Blomqvist and Elwy Persson page 41 star #2.
Here are my pictures from Tollway Tatters....

Marilee and Gwen(please forgive me if I have the wrong name here) tatting.

Carol, Sue Anna, and Marilee.
Marilee's fabulous tatting!! :)
And just so the Tollway Tatters know that I made it home to get that extra large batch of sloppy joes done, here is a picture:
That is a 7 or 7 1/2 quart slowcooker filled to the top. It went fast too!! :)
