How sad is it that CNN didn't mention the death of Johnathan Frid who died April 14th of natural causes. He was 87 years old. I know that Johnathan is suppose to be cameoed in the new Depp Dark Shadows movie and it is to be released in May I believe. How sad Johnathan didn't live long enough to see the movie hit the theatres. I will say that from looking at the trailers of the upcoming movie I am ...not impressed. I might by pass seeing this movie with Tim Burton touch or not. My parents were poor and worked in a restaurant but my Dad new how much I loved "Dark Shadows" and would surprise me every once in awhile with a Dark Shadows paperback book. Here is a picture of my books my Dad got for me which as you can see since they were so special to me I still have them. I also purchased the "Dark Shadows Compaion" book you see in the middle. It has Kathryn Leigh Scott's autograph in that one. I am really saddened by his lost to our world. Rest in Peace Johnathan.

A Wee bit of a post here. In the two pictures I used Martha Ess's Broomstick Lace Snowflake pattern from her book "PLaying with Picots" and made the bookmark and the little doily. Both of these will have new homes soon. Just thought I would share my wee bit of tatting with you all. I really do love the snowflake pattern. I should see Martha tomorrow sometime. I am planning on crashing the Tatting event in Lodi, New York tomorrow.
