There was a call out to find Fergal and Miss Scarlett. As you can see Mother Pam that all is well with the little ones. I am posting pictures here on my blog since I can't figure out how to and to the Wee ones own blog. I received Fergal and Miss Scarlett at Palmetto's Day event from Connie Angeline. As you can see today they were being served pizza, cookies, and some yummy cake at Playmobil Restaurant. Fergal also got to see Rochester, New York and soon they all will be seeing beautiful Canandaigua Lake where Fergus Og lives with his Mommy Celtic.

Great Grandma Effie Showing my mother in law tatting

Okay..I have to share this story. Years ago my husband and I flew to Florida to drive back home a car his mother gave us since she had no need for two cars. While we were there she gave me a black shuttle and said it was her mothers. IF Gary's Mom was still alive she would have been 100yeas old on 12/13/20014 which was last month. Her mother died at a young age so her Grandmother raised her. Yesterday, my husband and I were at his cousin's house trying to put names to faces i...n really old family pictures and my husband's cousin says to me here is a picture of Gladys (Gary's Mother) watching her Grandmother (Effie) Tatting. would have thought I stroke GOLD but I "struck" an old picture of ancestral family member watching another family member tatting. How exciting is that?!!!! So in these pictures is the shuttle that I was given, which is the same one in the picture. I scanned the picture so I can share my excitement with you and to have a blow up so I can print out 8" by 10" to put in frame and hang on my wall. Thank you so much Cynthia!!!!!!

I have just finished spangling my hand painted Santa Claus bobbins. I will be listing then on ebay starting this evening. So what do you think of them I have only four Midlands and three Honiton Santa Claus bobbins for now. These too me forever to paint...but finally done. Since they are hand painted no two look alike.

This is what I made today. A necklace for my very pretty Girlie Girl Kiara Anna Anna. Kiara's Mom brought over a cheap plastic beads craft kit to make little girl jewelry. I made a necklace out of the beads spelling out her full name. It is tatted using the "Beady Bracelet" and "Wrap Bracelet" techniques that Erin Holloway and I taught back in early September. It was hard to get a good picture so I am sharing two pictures I took. Kiara Anna...Granny loves you and this necklace I made for you my little Girlie Girl.

I was so inspired with all the beautiful tatting I saw a Palmetto's Tat Days that I tatted this doily up after I got home. The pattern came from an old "Star" pattern booklet and the pattern was just called...wait for it...wait for it..."Tatted Doily. I have renamed my finished doily "Tatted Colorway". I tried to put a lot of color in the doily. I like it.

I just finished this necklace you see me wearing in this picture. I used the single shuttle ring bracelet
 that Erin designed and I helped her teach a couple years ago. I added more to the design to make the necklace and to use up the beads I had left over from making the bracelet.
