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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
