Finishing touches done on my only completed project

It is a good thing I was making this one for myself because it is full of flaws. It is a lovely pattern, though, and available for free at

Many thanks to those of you who sent birthday wishes. I'm enjoying a lazy day.

Thanksgiving Day

Many of us are celebrating Thanksgiving Day here in the United States. I have a day of fun and family planned. There will be more than 20 of us gathered in one place. I expect lots of good food and laughter. Obviously, I have lots for which to be thankful today.

Tomorrow is my birthday. While many are out taking advantage of the frantic 'Black Friday' sales, I plan to spend the day updating my blog with a few pictures and tatting with some raspberry tea by my side and my feet on a cushion. Sounds great, doesn't it?

I hope all of you are enjoying time with family and friends this weekend, holiday or no holiday.

Happy tatting!

I've spent a lot of time today reading the many tatting blogs that I follow. I can report that I've managed to get a little tatting done since my last post (sorry, no pictures at the moment). One bookmark is ready for the finishing touches. I also started and abandoned a few projects as well, so there are a few additions to my UFO collection. I've been playing around with a few design ideas in my head, but I have not picked up shuttle and thread for any of them. I'm getting a nice collection of projects I want to work on when I'm less busy with school work.
