nuntium centesimum sexagesimum secundum - I'm sorry, Robin Perfetti

Dear Robin,

You don't know me and probably don't want to.  But i feel it's necessary to apologize for what I have done to your pattern- twice.

Seriously, I can tat better than this.  Maybe I should hold off on the CONE of Lizbeth.

So Robin, I hope you will forgive me and this terrible pun to time, I will make this snowflake (First Snowfall)  PERFETTO.

nuntium centesimum sexagesimum secundum - Mirabelle

Integrity compels me to say that I found the pattern for the snowflakes in my last post.  Here is the blog, check it out, she has other lovely patterns.

Today, I offer a pattern by Frivole  - Mirabelle.  This is a very pleasing tat and a lovely product.

I'm considering buying a cone of Lizbeth white, size 20.  It would probably last the rest of my lifetime.

nuntium centesimum sexagesimum primum -cute snowflake

Does anyone recognize this pattern?  I swear I tatted it two weeks ago and have NO idea what it is.  (I have now found it here. And she has many other lovely things so check it out!)

And that is my life these days.

On the other hand I got to tat...

nuntium centesimum sexagesimum - donated thread

Happy Bluebird and I get to tat together once a month along with some others.  We started "Twin Cities Tatters" a number of years ago.  For a few years, we were the only ones but now we have a healthy (free) membership and often have to pull over extra chairs to accommodate everyone.  What a joy it is to have others to help, puzzle with and guide.
Last time, she showed up with some donated threads.  Maybe you are like she is, everyone knows that she tats so when someone passes away, the families think to give it her.  (I hope my stash would end up with someone so kind.)
HB brought some of this thread last time and I saw something I'd never seen.  I'm not a pink gal for the most part but this one grabbed my heart. The variegation is so subtle and lovely.  This one is for a baby girl.
Size 40?  Thread- who knows?
