FINALLY...something to post!!! YAY:-)

Hello again to all my wonderful tatting friend! I have missed you all...have you missed me? LOL

I haven't posted in ages, I know, and I am sure you are all wondering by now if I have simply dropped off the face of the planet. I have not!! And, I have finally picked up my dusty old shuttles and put them to use. It has been far too long, and creating a bit of lace has done my soul a world of good:-)

2010 was quite a year for me and my family, (I will spare you the details, as it would take far too long, and probably sound like whining anyway), but I am praying for, and looking forward to, a happier, healthier 2011.

So, would you all like to see what I have been up to this week?


It is a pattern I found in one of my favorite books, "Tatting With Friends", by Georgia Seitz. The pattern is called "Danish Heart", and is by Karen Bovard. I did it in Lizbeth size 20 colors 623 Lt Raspberry, and 644 Boysenberry.

I think it looks Gorgeous!!! I hope you all agree:-)

I plan to have it framed and matted as a Valentine's gift for hubby...Shhhhh...don't tell him:-) Well, hopefully my next post won't be too far off in the future. Happy tatting all:-)
