Merry Christmas

Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and for those who do not celebrate have a great Holiday
Now that I have everything done for the day as far as I know I sit down for the rest of the night.
Here is the Shuttle Sock I won from Stitching'n Knitting. My great grandson saw it and wanted it no I didn't let him have it. I told it was for a tatting shuttle and he thought that was neat.
The headband-Necklace I won form Alana Tatter ~ The Tatting Gallery.

Snowflakes & flowers

This is Dlinga from Jon Yusoff book of Elegant Tatting Gems. For some reason this one drove me crazy when I got to the last. I know how it should go but took me forever to get it right. Still have not had time to tuck in the ends yet. I this one is done with one of Yarnplayers hand dyed threads.

Mustika from Jon book

Baiduri This one is done in Lady Shuttle Makers- Hand Dyed Faeries.

Almas Lizabth thread

This is the pattern from Jon Yusoff blog.

Strawberries flower not sure what site I found it at. I am not sure where I put the information at for it.

These are Linda S. Davies Bluebell's . I did tat the leaves but I think the one cat took off with them so I half to tat them over again.

The butterfly's are from More Critters on the Block by Martha Ess. The half one I did so I could empty my shuttles, but I like the way it turned out.

What have I been doing.

Look what came in the mail yesterday. Three workbasket from Teresa Fox and I won one of Diane Shuttles. Thanks two both I love them. I have been tatting but it all needs to be blocked and on some the ends need worked in.

I am still around. First there was getting everything put just in my name. That is after I got my self alive again. They had me dead instead of him. So they canceled my SS, my insurance ect. Which I had to make a trip to the SS office to get myself back to the living.
I have been trying to catch up on the last two and a half years work. I have been painting, had the rest of the drive replaced, and then there is all of the little repairs that had to be done. I do most of them. Also have cleaned and caulked a dozen windows and still have at least three more to do.

Then there is all of the yard work. I have been pulling weed everyday when it is not to hot to be out or raining. I have more then one flower bed, One is very large, today it is in the 90 with a heat index of 100. And it is going to be hotter then that for almost all of next week.

I have also put in about 30 years of genealogy. Which was started before all of us had computers. Think of a stack of papers about three and a half feet tall. I only have a few pages left to do. All of it goes in the recycle ben. Enough of that.

I am going to try and post more often.
