FINALLY Tatting to show(just one)

I actually tatted last night while watching 
a new Hallmark movie.
This is Camilla from the book Tatted Bookmarks
- cross-shaped by Lene Bjorn.
It's tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Sea Island Citrus.
It's for another one of our Sunday night seniors.
Still settling into the new house and probably 
will until next year some time.  I have a ton 
of stuff!!!  ;)
Have a fabulous tatting time!!!  :)

In the new house, and.....

Some space to live and move, a huge relief from the 
hotel room!!!
No, not done and this isn't finished, just live-able.
 We moved as much as possible Sunday and went 
to bed at 10:30pm with no snow, but woke Monday 
 morning at 8am to 4-6 inches.
 And then woke Tuesday morning at 8am to about 
2 ft. of snow.  The buried vehicle has sat since 
Sunday night when we got here.  the vehicle behind 
has about a foot of snow because hubby got in from 
work at 3am Tues. morning.  It snowed almost all 
day, and I shoved for about an hour and a half while 
hubby slept, but he woke up and had to find a plow 
to clear the drive so he could get to work(the main 
street wasn't even plowed).  He said there was so much 
snow on the road and in the drive that the suburban 
was pushing snow like a plow(and it was stuck in the 
morning and had to get pushed out by the plow).
I tried to open the door and see how deep the snow was 
and it wouldn't go any farther than this,  and when I 
closed it, it brought snow inside.
It looked like we had a 2nd propane tank sitting 
on ours. 
And wow!  Look at all the snow on the air conditioner!! 
 That's me making my way through knee deep snow to 
try and clean off the vehicles so that we could TRY 
and move them for the plow to clear the driveway.
Hopefully soon I will have tatting to show, but first 
I NEED to make sure to find a place for most if not 
everything!!!!  ;)
Happy Tatting!!!  :)

Housing update:

Ok everyone, it's insanity time!!!
Looks like we might be moving on Sunday.
We are waiting for the certificate of occupancy.
As you can see in the pictures they have work left 
to finish, but we are being told we might be moving 
this weekend, but....I have a craft show Saturday.
First picture, the livingroom.
 Second picture the kitchen(slight view of the  
familyroom off to the right).
Next picture is the design piece I am working on for 
the Online Tatting Design Class-will be a large 
tatted suncatcher-beads will be added when I tat 
it all over, I am just designing first(in size 3 thread).
 Next, I got our daughter started in crafting about 2 
months ago and she has really gone crazy and created 
a pumpkin patch to sell, and other items I have 
previously shown.  Well, I took my hand at it and 
made this candy cane "wreath" last night.  I love 
 Below is a close-up to show the adorable 
snowmen(my favorite), and I have an 
order for one already(beside I want one!).
 Our daughter created this lighted wall pumpkin.
It's not lit in this picture, but it looks great both 
lit and unlit. It's more of a contemporary style-
not my thing, but it does look great!
 Just letting you know that I am not sure when I will 
be back online.  The internet is supposed to be installed 
on Monday, but....so far nothing has happened 
when it was supposed to, so I am prepared to 
be offline for up to 2 weeks, so you maybe 
not hear from me(plus moving takes tons of 
time), or you may get a surprise!
Happy tatting!!!  :)
Thanks for all the prayers and encouragement!!!
