About Me

My photo
I have been a crafter of all sorts for many years, and really love working with Paper and Threads. I am loving the design work I am doing now. I really seem to be getting back into my "art", even if I am doing it by computer now, instead of actually getting dirty while drawing. ;-) I have been avid about Thread Arts since I was a kid, learning to Crochet at 7, then Knit, Embroider, Needle Lace and finally Needle Tat. I love to design as well and am looking forward to taking the Needle Tatting that further step as well.

I'm SO bad!

Sorry I keep falling behind!  See my post here for more expaination...
We have finally taken our Tatting Designs to the point where we have drawn the whole design out!  Here is mine!  Hope you all have fun with it!

Here is some more tatting that I have been doing.  These patterns come from Lyn Morton's book, Tatting Jewellery and are tatted with a single strand of Gold Metallic DMC embroidery floss and size 8/0 seed beads.

Lesson 5 and Another of My Crochet Patterns

Well, it has been some time...sorry.  We have actually done Lesson 5 and Lesson 6, but there is nothing yet to show for Lesson 6.  Life kind of got in the way and I got behind on a lot of things...blog posts seem to always fall to the bottom of the To-Do list for some reason...sorry.
Lesson 5 was a total Blast for me!  I hope you all enjoy the pattern that I have written!  I have included the full pattern for the medallion I made in the previous lesson Here.
I am also sharing another of my Crochet Designs with you.  This one is called Dee's Hospitality and is a wonderful doily that I designed in honor of a very loving Aunt who helped me out several years ago.  Here is a (not so good...sorry) picture of the doily.

If any of you make any of my patterns up, I would really love to see them!  Just send me a picture to the email in  my Profile and if you will allow it, I will post the picture of your work here on my Blog too!
