More good deals!!!

Well, I had to get an MRI done and made it through.
Our daughter decided that we needed to make a trip 
through JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby.
Neither of us found anything we needed at JoAnn's, 
but we both found things at Hobby Lobby.  Funny, 
I cleaned them out of all the balls of thread last time 
and this is what I found today!!!  I thought there 
wouldn't be anything, so, I guess I will have to keep 
checking.  We have to make another trip to the "big" 
city so I will be checking 2 large stores again.  ;)
Have a fabulous night and I hope you have had your 
tatting time!!! :)

2 Stops at Hobby Lobbys

After reading some posts from tatters in a facebook 
group about finding Lizbeth thread at a great price 
I decided when I had to go to the bigger town to 
check and see if I could find any deals.  Well, 
the first store had nothing.  The second store had 
a shuttle I don't use and 7 balls of thread.
And then I hit a 3rd store on the way home in my 
"home" town and found 4 more balls of thread.  Yay!!
2 days ago we woke up to snow!!  That's Michigan 
for you, we can have snow any month!!
Three hours later, you would think it was a spring 
Today Tollway Tatters got "together" again and it 
was great to see what everyone was working on!! 
I worked on a mermaid suncatcher I am making. I 
got the outer row done today and have a bit more. 
It will probably end up a 6 inch suncatcher when 
completed.  I am loving the Lizbeth Coral Splash 
with this one.  It's size 40 if you are wondering. ;)

Well, I hope you have had a great Saturday 
and that tomorrow is blessed for you!! :)

Tatting slowly lately

Row 12 of my Spring Doily done. I sure hope it
straightens out or I will have to block it before
I can continue cuz' that outer edge sure is curling up!!!
I have stretched it a bit by hand, but it stays.  I thought 
it would be great if I had a clear glass plate that would 
sit inside, but I don't, so I have to continue.  ;)
Have a fabulous weekend and get some tatting in!!! :)

Row 11 done

Renulek's 2021 Spring Doily.
I have about 1/4 of row 12 started already.
I also have 3 points of the final row on my Christmas 
Doily started.  This pattern has given me some fits at 
the beginning and now the end, but I am getting it(I 
think).  ;)
I REALLY need to learn to work with downward 
joins!!!!!  I tried when I started the red row, but 
forgot when I picked it up and had too much done 
to go back and correct it, and now with this, I am 
NOT changing it!!!  Too much frustration!

Have a wonderful tatting filled week!!! :)

A different colored suncatcher

I just finished this suncatcher.  It's  for 
a friend.  Tatted in size 40 Lizbeth 
Purple Iris Dk. and Rainbow Taffy.
It's another 8 inch suncatcher.
I really like how it turned out.
I need to try other colors!!!  :D
Hope you are having a great day filled 
with love and tatting!!! :)
