Between my MIL visiting and then my dad and step-mom I have had someone else in my house who needed my attention for most of June and all of July and the first week of August. Finally I have my house to myself and my daily routines can go back to normal.
I wanted to participate in the lion brand blog CAL for the first time but I was constantly busy running people around and visiting with them. Now that they are gone I'm quickly trying to catch up but I just looked and it
I got my set of 6 tatting needles in the mail today. It was funny because the ebay account is in my name but my husband uses it the most for buying magic cards (card game). We get a lot of little packages in the mail with my name on them but they are all for him. This time he ripped open the envelope and was bummed. He said, "needles?" with a frown LOL But I was very happy to see them. They came pretty fast! I can't wait to try them but I am making myself wait a little while.
My husband always says I'm ADHD when it comes to crafts. I can never do one thing for long before something else distracts me. Well I got this email from Lion brand yarn with a few patterns for tie's for Father's day. Well, I know that's over but I really want to make something for my husband. He is one of those guys who doesn't like "crafty" things. He always tells me not to make him anything because he wont wear it. BUT, since I'm not working now and we are tight on money I can't

I finally finished making two crosses using Rachel's pattern for her Easy Cross (found under patterns).
Sorry the image isn't the best. I used my iPhone since I can't find the battery charger for my camera. One of the crosses is cut off but if you look in my album it's not cut off there.
I am making these for friends and I think they will love them. So as I was working on the pink one
I am so excited. I finally ordered my thread for the shower curtain I'm making from Handy Hands. I wanted the thread to match the new paint color and it can be hard to trust the trueness of the colors on screen or in printed catalogs so I asked if I could send them a paint sample. They were happy to help. I just put my order in and I was right. The color in the catalog that I thought was closest wasn't the right color and I would have never chosen the colors they suggested. I'm so glad they
Why does it say "dormouse" under my name? And I don't see my status on posts in the forum. Why is that???? I'm confusaled.
Royale Metallic Crochet Thread is TERRIBLE to tat with. The little gold filament gets in the way and causes all kinds of trouble. Trying to make a join I broke the filament and then had to use a little glue to get it to stick to the thread again. It is constantly separating from the main thread and causing a tangled mess. I will NEVER use this again to tat with. It may just end up across the road.
I want something that waves so I'm thinking of one of these patterns but I'm still looking...

Well, since my boys are older I have decided to change the decor of my bathroom from the tropical fish theme we've had for 7 years. My plan is to design each room of my house around a different country - my living room is Ireland, my kitchen Italy, my bedroom is Asian (couldn't decide on one particular country there), my master bath is going to be Parisian themed, I'm letting the kids do their own rooms how they want, and I thought the bathroom could be British ships.... like from the 1700's

I tried to add pictures of my tatting projects to my first blog post by copying the photo link from my regular blog mygardenblue.wordpress.com and they came out huge! Since it appears that I can't just add pictures right from my computer I am just going to post the link to my blog posts and the pictures can be viewed there. Maybe I'll figure out another way in the future.
Anyway, I learned about tatting in February of this year (2011) and decided I wanted to learn how to
In my first post I just went to my regular blog and used the photo links from there. I didn't realize the pictures were that big! They also look blurry but they don't look like that on my blog BUT they were taken with my iPhone so they aren't the best pictures.
I'm still trying to figure out how to fix this. This website baffles me.
