More flakes on the Winter Wonderland Blog!

Also, I thought I'd share a pic of the quilt before I had all the flakes sewn down. I wanted to get an idea of how it would look spread out on a bed. Please ignore the mess. It was either clean or sew on snowflakes. I can't wait to see it quilted! Heeheeeee!

ALSO - a shameless reminder to check out the quilt at the Tat Days Scholarship Info Website. Contribute often - you may be the proud owner of this quilt-soon-to-be!

I can't believe it's August already!!!

Oh, my! Time flies when you're having fun! The quilt top has made its way up to Illinois and Georgia and Pinky! You can get a sneaky peek the Tat Days Scholarship Info . Unfortunately the photograph is just the top before it was very unceremoniously dumped into a box and dropped in the mail. It was really fun to turn it over to Pinky and be surprised like everyone else now.

I've posted more flakes
at the tatting-in-a-winter-wonderland blog. I cannot begin to tell you how thankful I am that we had such selfless participation in this project. Folks were so very, very generous. Tatting folk are nice folk, that's all there is to it.

I've been doing a little proofing for Martha Ess. Her new book is going to be faboo - that's just all there is to it! You can sit and have a cuppa with Martha at her blog.

Also -- TAT DAYS REGISTRATION IS OPEN!!!! Yay! Can Tat Days be far behind? Look at the cool logo designed by Pam Freck!

Check it out!!!!!

I feel like I've given birth!

The quilt has landed at Georgia's. Now I can show and tell about the snowflakes in earnest. More snowflakes are posted at Tatting in a Winter Wonderland. I can't believe it's *58* days until Tat Days. Have you looked at the preliminary information? I don't know about you guys, but I can't wait!

Time for an update!

We've had a little blizzard at Tatting in a Winter Wonderland! I do apologize for the tiny gap in updates. I had visitors. My sister-in-law and brother-in-law came with their granddaughter (my great niece), Asa. Asa was way too much fun. I'll post a pic shortly.

Hi, gang!

I had the most delightful telephone call today from Isdihara! You know, I think we must have all been separated at birth. I don't think I've ever spoken to a tatting stranger. They just don't exist. Thanks, Issy!

I thought I'd give you another bathroom update. The tile got up on the walls, the fixtures got put in, then I needed to grout. Yes, that was a little backwards, but I had to work with the plumber guy schedule. I grouted the wall where all the fixtures went, then after the fixtures were replumbed I grouted the remaining tile.

You remember Crazy Mom of Crazy Mom Tats!? Well, she frequently writes of the adventures of her children, the Stooges. I have some Stooges of my own, but mine are the furry kind -- Chatty, Stinky and Nedsel. They may be feline, but they want to help just the same.

More flakes today from Anitra Stone and Stephanie Wilson on the snowflake blog.

And some eyecandy. This is a little doodle I did out of some scrap copper wire and a bit of thread left on the end of a shuttle. I used inverted picots in the style of Dutch needle tatting and shaped the wire as I went.

Bathroom update and more flakes over on the snowflake blog. Here's a preview:

When you're doing this tile stuff, you get to cut the tiles to go around little things like this. I like to call this my "Tribute to Mondrian". Of course, my artistry is now hidden beneath the vanity, but I know it's there. Now you do too!

More snow is falling at Tatting in A Winter Wonderland!

Meanwhile, here's a bathroom princess update.

I posted a new entry on the Quilt blog. Here's another picture of the Bathroom Fairy's project.

The plumbing had been replaced, new drywall put up and the monotonous job of taping begins.....

Don't let the smile fool you.

I'm actually contemplating what to do with that broom and the camera at that point.

Long time no post!
Bathroom fairy here. I started a little blog to chronicle the snowflake quilt project for the Palmetto Tatters Guild Scholarship Fund. Check it out!
