Last year the table space was $20 but this year it's on a donation basis- wahoo!
So here's my new thing:
What do you think? I'm sure you recognize Jeanne Lugert's roses and the green is just a little 5-ring 5-p-5 with 15 on the chains in a variety of picots or even none. I saw this idea on a French blog I just found from Fleur. I asked her for the pattern and was delighted when I found out it was Jeanne's (especially since I had to write to her in France to find out that the pattern comes from someone in just the next state over!) Take a moment to look at Fleur's blog, she has some very interesting designs.
|I like this color combo.|
I especially like this one because of how the green "collar" turned out.
Fun, but a LOT more work than I though they would be. These two are my favorites:
In other very exciting news, we met last week for Twin Cities Tatters. Both of my daughters joined us and the younger made her very first ring!
Then she put it down and decided she'd had enough. They both say they like tatting but I suspect they learned to humor me. Even if they don't do it for 20 years, the skill will be always be theirs and they will be able to pick it up again, I hope.
Darling Husband is having surgery today and I'd love to give Frivole's Minuet a whirl but I'm going to be good and get my school work done. If I don't take anything there except the computer, I should be able to do it, right?
Latin for today: anulus meus non commodus est! = My ring doesn't fit!
