I myself didn't kiss the Blarney Stone. Being I am an Register Nurse...think have the tendency of thinking about germs. There was no way I was going to kiss the stone when I thought of all the others before me. Also I think it was mentioned that back in the day it was used as a latrine.
Here are some more pictures of Blarney Castle in County Cork that I took/
In picture one you can see the view from the top of the castle. The next picture over is the castle in the distance. The picture below left show where the fireplace was...that is my husband in the lower corner...so the floor was gone..it was wierd I remember seeing that fireplace above us. In the other picture you can see some of the rooms that were label..note again...no floors.
In the last picture is my snowflake I tatted of Rainbow Brite HDT from Pamela Myers my good Irish friend. http://tatsakoolchallenge.blogspot.com/

I had such a grand time yesterday that today I am actually not tatting but working on my huge bobbinlace pillow and working on my Bedfordshire edging that I started long before I found the internet. I am really enjoying myself and relaxing.
The sun is out and brightly shining and it is actually warm this week and is suppose to be for a few more days yet so I am going to have to get outside and get my flowerbeds ready for their winter blanket of snow and cold.
But the really "GREAT EXCITEMENT" from yesterday is, I finally met one of my Bobbinlace Idols. I use to buy bobbins from across the great pond from them. This is when I was working and I even ordered my bobbins by calling them in England. They do not turn bobbins or sell them anymore .

I had forgotten I had done this until I was looking at my CDs for something else which I never did find. I was originally looking for some pictures I saved of Nina Libin's Tatting that she use to have on her website, but they are there anymore and I was wondering if I saved the pictures...but I guess I didn't or they are on a CD but I am too blind to see them...LOL. Anyhow you can enjoy this picture. Since I made it I guess I own the copywrite so don't be stealing it without permission if you are going to use it somewhere else please write to me first.
The other exciting news is.....I found out what my next grandchild is going to be....I will be sharing more pictures as soon as I get them. At least now that I know what my grandchild sex is...I can decided on colors....pink or blue....pink or blue.....pink or blue....

This is Martha's Nativity set from the book by Ineke Kuiperij.
This hanky was done also by Martha and I think it was the "Best of Show". It is really a beauty. Funny, it is so pretty that I would never in a thousand years use it for my nose.
This teapot set is also a design of Martha Ess. We have a very pretty teapot,cup, creamer and the yum, yum sugar bowl. Martha is amazing when it comes to designs.

In the second picture is some of the treasure I bought home...tatting and bobbinlace made by someone else's hands.The two heart bookmarks were on the table at the banquet. Everybody got one or two I believe. There is a name for the heart pattern but I can't remember it right now. I believe the pattern is on the Palmetto's Website.http://www.palmettotatters.org/
The teapot is from an exchange I did with Martha Ess. And look she even made it in purple. I am so l.oving her teapots though truth to be told...I hate tea...but love teapots...LOL Here is a picture of what I made for her
The bobbinlace bookmark was made by my friend Erin ..and the beaded bracelet is also made by Erin...it just needs a clasp. I also have one of Martha "Beep Beep" birdies. This is one very cool looking bird.
When I went shopping with Erin we went on a bead hunt. So I have more beads. Since I was charged for my one suitcase that I took with me ....Erin sent some of my stuff home by mail. So after I got home I had more tattingGinny Weather's Daughter Misty is expecting a baby which will be Ginny's first grandchild. Karey asked some of us in the guild to make a quilt square to become a baby quilt for the baby. Here is a picture of my quilt block and a picture that Karey sent around of the finished baby quilt. It was a nice idea that Karey came up with.In my quilt block I have the letter "B" from the new alphabet and number tatting book sold by Handy Hands and the letter "B" stands for blue bear and balloons. The bear and balloon patterns were from Pam Palmer "Tatting Treats" book.
