Well Christmas is over, still working, going to finish the edge of this mat as have found an edge that will fit with a bit of jiggling. The one that it come's with I just can't get it to fit(old pattern). My daughter Francesca has bought me OCCHI Schiffchenspitze Frivolite for Christmas but I must finish a couple of U.F.O'S first.
Well at last have finished my Tat-a-long that Tat-a-Renda has been running. Christmas got in the way . I have changed the edge slightly as have run out of time. The clovers on edge are meant to be added to two rings bt missed them out and went straight into the clovers.See Jon's blog to see how it should look.
This is me showing off my Brothers and s-i-laws Christmas present I made.They have just bought a narrow boat and are going to call it Tyto Alba (Barn Owl) in latin. My s-i-law Margaret is mad about Owls. I thought this was a good present for them both to use on the boat. Apron and oven mitts.
Had fun over the last year starting in January making 30 of Jane's Christmas tree,s. I have given them to family and friends, they always like what I make at this time of year. I even made a Christmas card of this picture and sent it to her. Think I'll try doing the button snow flakes for next year.
Oh what a Christmas exchange I had from Trayna, Look at all the things beads, thread, fudge, books, rings,shuttle ,doodads. Going to keep me busy in the new year. Some Fab patterns in the books. Love the book mark she had made. Big thank you Trayna.
