nuntium centesimum tricesimum sextum (136th post) Josephine Petal!

A new technique- the Josephine Petal!  Frivole has designed a lovely pattern with this technique.  Tatting keeps evolving because of creative folks like Frivole.  It's so fun to learn anything new.  But don't base your opinion on my work because, well, I haven't quite mastered it.

Be sure to look at Frivole's lovely examples, hers are stunning. There's a draw right now to win the pattern. Fox has also given it a lovely whirl.  Hers look more like what they're supposed to.

We recently went for a visit to my parents' in ND.  It was a great visit and we had lots of fun.  Both parents have Thunderbird convertibles, a '66 dark blue beauty and a "retro-bird" which my mom let me drive whenever I wanted-what fun!

Now it's back to the very sedate van.
