The new issue of Piecework Magazine has two tatting articles in it. One of them looks pretty simple (picture left), so I am going to start it this afternoon at our Monday Afternoon Get-together with my creative friends (We are trying to decide on a name for our group).
Doesn't this look cool.
The shuttles came from Handy Hands. I scanned the picture from the Piecework May/June magazine.
Piecework has had some really interesting articles in it lately, so I've renewed my subscription so I don't have to drive all the way to Fairport (about 20 minutes from here) to get a copy at Borders. I'll miss getting to Borders, though.
As promised here are pictures of two of the quilt blocks I've been working on. In these, I was auditioning the turquoise color for the joining strips. I now have all six of the blocks joined and they look pretty cool. As soon as I can find a place to lay it out to take a picture of the whole thing, I'll post it.
My daughter, Jen, is now a Certified All Breed Dog Groomer and she is working at A Dog's Dream doggy day spa in Pittsford, NY. I surprised her at work on Friday. The dog's name is Rosie and she was Jen's first client. It seems Rosie is used to having her picture taken because every time I pointed the camera at her, she looked right into it.
Anyway, Jen has always loved dogs and animals and I am sure she will do well.
