Crazy successful - nuntium centesimum nonagesimum et quintum

The MN snowflakes were a huge hit!  I did the best I've ever done at a craft fair.  I sold them all so I've been tatting between everything I can and even in the car on the way to church (husband driving not me!)  But the tealights?  No go.

Below is a wedding present for a dear friend and his new wife.  They have been married before and really don't need anything so I went with unique instead of practical or expensive.

It's a Robin Perfetti design done in Lizbeth 20, Herbal Garden and Brown

And I loathe sewing edgings on but I figured out the way to do it.  Invisible thread and a sewing machine!  But I had to do it on a sunny day and seriously felt like the tailors in the Emperor's New Clothes waving around with empty needles.  But I was done in about 20 minutes (most of that time spent pinning) and those edgings will NOT fall off even when washed.

How's that!

Twenty-four! - nuntium centesimum nonagesimum et quartum

This week has been a busy one but I've been able to squeeze in a few MN flakes for the next sale.

New one from Craftree - Small Snowflake from Amanda Lockwood

 And yes, that's Frivole's 2015 snowflake, Snowdrop.  It's just so lovely (and was the first thing that sold last weekend).

And just for fun, here are our pumpkins.  Mine is the one with the crazy glue where I got too enthusiastic and sliced off an important bit.
