The only tatting to show isn't completed. As you
can see it will be another glass covered ornament.
Ok, now for the lengthy explanation of my lack of
tatting. For the past 2 weeks we have been dealing
with a dear friend in the hospital almost dying. As
of yesterday the ventilator and most other machines
were finally removed and he was able to talk a little
and as of today he is being moved out of ICU!! His
brother and sister-in-law came from Maine to see him
and thankfully got to talk with him before heading
home today-we have all been working out the details
of taking care of his home and such.
Next, last weekend on top of the prior mentioned,
we had our granddaughter invasion again!!!
It was an extremely busy weekend trying to have
a little fun in all the chaos. Our younger granddaughter
finally received her "heart of Tafiti" necklace from
the Disney movie Moana, and you can see she loves
Next, the girls had me make them some earrings in
between making lots of food for a wedding that
happened on Sunday after our morning lesson.
The younger granddaughter picked the tiny jingle bells
and wanted 3 linked together.
The older wanted a single tiny jingle bell pair.
The younger chose my size 80 Yarnplayer's Small
Maple Leaf earrings.
The older chose small candy cane earrings(these
are made from the miniature Christmas tree
Then the large sequins were spotted and specific
colors were chosen by each. This pair by the younger.
And a different set of colors by the older(some how
I missed taking a picture-too much going on!!!).
They are lightweight and fun!!
The girls each wore all 3 pairs through out
Next activity was to have them decorate the house
for autumn(cheap and easy). Our daughter bought
dollar store packages(2) of autumn colored leaves,
and we bought 3M brand poster tape which usually
comes off easy without ruining the walls.
Place a little tape on the back and send the child
off to place wherever(few restrictions of course!).
So, now the autumn leaves are blowing through the
house another year. :)
So, I survived all our normal activities, a friend in
the hospital in critical care, Sunday morning,
a wedding, and Sunday night. As of now, I am sick
with a cold and feeling miserable. So....everything is
taking far longer than I want it too, but I have no
energy left!! Got to get prepared for another trip to
the hospital on Saturday, and our normal Sunday
morning and evening groups!
Keeping on tatting, and if you would, say a prayer
for me! Thank you everyone!!! :)
