Slow Days

Sometimes days just go by slowly, especially those when you're hurting.  With all the drastic weather changes that we aren't used to here in the south, some of my old injuries have been acting up and moving about is sometimes painful...so the days have been slow moving (literally) for me the past few days.  When these kind of days come around I tend to hibernate and just take some easy time to myself....which is why I haven't posted anything in a bit, but it's time to catch up.

First of all yesterday I was quite honored to have a piece of my tatting shown to Georgia's online class as an example for people.  Thank you very much, Georgia!  This particular piece is one I did to replicate a design Fox created (with Fox's permission).  It's for her design called Maeve.  Here's my version of it using Lizbeth threads.

Motif # 15:

I've also put three of my doilies in my Etsy shop:

Cottage Rose Doily

Vintage Roses Doily

Wildflowers Doily

I actually stitched these last fall and just now got around to putting them out for sale.

I've been working on a few more tatted items and will have another picture taking session soon.  Plans for a new bear are swirling around in my head and I want to start work on that soon.  I've also been putting in alot of work getting my updated website ready.  I hope to have it finished and online by the end of the week!

I'm ready for spring...I want all this cold weather to go away!
