Pam...love the jacket!!! But you know I am a huge fan of your work! You could embroidery doggie do-do
and make it look stunning...you are just that good! Your Friend will love that!

I didn't have time to watch the video tonight but will get back to it tomorrow...thanks for posting it!
It's been one of those weeks that I'd like to take a Re-do on...I think! Then again...maybe it is best to leave well enough alone.

Hugs,

Thanks guys!

Judy-The pattern is vintage but it was reproduced in a book. I can't remember the name off the top of my head, Maybe Vintage Linens-I'll find out for you. It is tinted with crayons and it is SO easy! Once you have your pattern on your fabric, you take your crayons and color it in. Color very lightly and then add another layer if you want it a bit darker. You don't want it too dark because then you will have a waxy buildup. You can wash it, just like the embroidery-with each wash it sets the color.

Peggy-the video will make you giggle.

Much love and peace to everyone recovering right now. You are strong, beautiful women.

Here are the two pieces of my tatting that I completed and learned from the Tat Days! I am so thrilled that I finally "got it"!

Beautiful. I kinda can do needle tatting but not the shuttle. Tried for years and could not get it. Funny too as I can knit and crochet.

Pam.... it got easier for me when I had someone to visually learn from. Once I "got it" the directions and/or patterns are looking less alien to me!

Is it possible that you and Cherime are also visual learners?
Maybe look around for classes or ask around to meet someone who tats. There are more tatters out there than we realize. Maybe check with your craft stores or post a note in the library, community board.. hey if you have a Senior Center, check with them.

I have needles for tatting... might be on my next challenge list for me to accomplish, though I have heard from several tatters say that they needle tatted then learned how to do the shuttle, that they wouldn't go back to needles. So we'll see what my opinion will be once I learn needle tat. I think that it will depend on what I am going to be tatting.. edgings on needles and motifs with shuttle. ***shrugs***

I also do the needle tatting after giving up on the shuttles. I have been "spring cleaning" and found my shuttles the other day. They have been packed away at least 20 years. Karrieann, you do beautiful work. Congratulations.

Pam - Your jacket is a great idea. How cute!! And I would never have thought of creating a frame like that.

Karrieann..beautiful tatting. I know NOTHING about tatting but think it looks really cool. Are tatting
needles, like just a couple inches long and look like a crochet hook? I got one in a package of vintage
threads a week or two ago and I couldn't figure out what it was used for...but there was some tatting in
the bag also. So, I was guessing. I loved the colors you used...they shout FALL!

Hugs,

Pam, the jacket is terrific. I think the frame is perfect.

And Karrieann, your tatting is marvelous. I want to work on some tatting this year. I learned as a child on shuttles and hope it comes back. The needles sound easier though. Suzanne

Your jacket is great. I think that you are correct about being a visual learner. My exH taught me to knit one day when he was sick with a couple of pieces of coat hanger and some twine. Once I got the knit and pearl I was fine.
Well off to the plumbing situation. Finished my coffee and so its out to the garage. It's around 40 degrees this am and spitting rain. I do hate working outside when its raining.

Karrieann, those are so pretty!
Today I'm going to work on a blanket I started ages ago! I also need to start some things for Christmas, like the million scarves I want to make!

Today I wrote a devotional on Risking Love...
From there I will probably work on a Shawl and a washcloth.

We are just taking it easy for the Holiday Weekend. No Laboring
just relaxing and unwinding. Feels good!

Working on knitting a blanket. The last one took me like two years to complete, I'm a very slow knitter and every now and then life just gets in the way. Hoping this one is done in time to use it this winter!

Just finished another apron for one of my daughter's bridesmaids and college friend. She loved it! On to the next project--a meditation cushion for my sister. Dianne

Hi, everyone..

It's nice to read what everyone is working on.

Zoed...First off WELCOME! Secondly if you go on the General Forums you will find a Farmgirls
Swap Page. We just finished A Halloween Goody Bag Swap. I have just started a Stuffed Christmas Stocking
Swap and we are still in the sign-up stage. So, go check it out! Swaps are a lot of fun to be
involved in. But for myself...I really pick and choose the ones that appeal to me. You could drive
yourself crazy if you did too many of them at once. LOL

Blessings,
~peggy
