Today I finished my wire work butterfly necklace designed by Barb Switzer. I also made my own chain. I love it! The design I think is so beautiful. Now to move on to something else but now I have made one thing in wire I may do more. It is a fun thing to do.

It has been awhile since I have posted on here...but I am still around. I have recently finished two Alice Starmore sweaters pictured below.
   I had been proofing for Iris Niebach and here is a picture of her new book which has some beautiful design and also showing you what she sent to me including the tatting collage that is pictured on the back of the book.
   Today I am working on y first real wire work. Here is a picture of the body of the butterfly. The design is by Barb Switzer. If you do a google you will see some of the finished butterflies. The butterfly is the focal point of a necklace. I have lusted to make this butterfly since I first saw it.
She was kind enough to share this design with me a few years ago.
   I have also been going around to cemeteries while working on my family tree.

Good morning everybody and I hope all your dreams come true for the new years ahead.
I had a very nice Christmas and  I hope you did too. My children got us a new refrigerator which we really needed badly. Ours was still working but it ended up with a rusting problem. Never heard of a refrigerator doing that before.
   This year I made tatting over glass Christmas ornaments for each my children. Here is a couple pictures of them.
I also love making things with Legos and what is more fun than getting Scooby Doo Legos. This is what my son Ryan got for me. I am known to spend hours putting the Legos together for my Grandchildren. So now they will have Scooby Doo ones to play with when they are here at Granny's house.
Here is a picture of my whole family on Christmas Day.
