nuntium vicesimum tertium (23rd post) So spoiled!

It's been a busy week so I'm catching up but on Thursday I received the sweetest hair pin from Randa.  She's been making these and giving directions on her blog so when I commented, she offered to send me one!
tatted by Randa Gray

But she also sent some of her precious Flora thread for more, findings and even another one for a pendant!  Very generous, Randa- thank you very much!

I was at a national conference today for Latin and Greek teachers, it was so fun and exciting- AND- I got to tat.  I'll show you what I made.

Both my daughters said they were lovely crosses!

But they're angels.  sigh.  I really like how the variegated thread turned out on the burgundy one.  They're both in size 80 Lizbeth, Country Grape Swirl and Royal Wave.  I guess I'll have to tell the students in my thank yous that I hope they like their "angel bookmarks" or they won't know!

This is a wonderful little pattern from Sharren, easy to do while getting great, new, amazing ideas for class.

Latin for today:  re vera, angeli sunt, non cruces! = Really, they're angels, not crosses!  preme hic ut audias.

  2. Hi Tatting Chic, Thanks for commenting and letting me know you're looking- I'm so glad you found me. It is a La Cossette, isn't it gorgeous? I'm so lucky! Hope to see more of you!


gratias maximas- it's wonderful to hear what you have to say!
