West Pine's idea - nuntium trecentesimum tricesimum

The craft show went very well although I found myself worrying because I was selling everything!  (Strange but there is another show next month and I'm tatting less because of my hand.)  Then I would get very excited because I was selling everything ($$)!  Silly me!

I saw these bookmarks on West Pine's blog and thought they were wonderful.  And I have a few Christmas-y type charms so I came up with these.

They are Lizbeth Cranberry Blush size 20.  Some of these sold, the blue balls sold, all the white or blue ice snowflakes sold and over 20 of the MN flakes sold!

 And in other projects, here's my sweet, silly, lovable, (not-so-bright) dog learning "come".  We do this in the morning when there are fewer distractions (and the squirrels are still sleeping?).

This is her maximum tolerance before she "comes" by herself.  She's barely sitting and wagging the whole time!

And the right-side pumpkin with the smiling ghosts was mine.  ; )


  1. Good for you at the craft show! Nice to be selling out. I love the bookmarks - great idea with the charms.

  2. It’s a dilemma when you’re doing more than one fair, but hey all sales are to be celebrated! I like the bookmarks with charms.

  3. Those book marks are excellent really beautiful 😀 my dog does that too, but if you sit on the ground she will "come"or at least try that😀

  4. Congrats on the sales! I'm sure the snowflakes will be prized ornaments to be enjoyed every year. Marie's bookmarks are very clever, and you've added your own tatted embellishments as well as the unique charms! Love the colors! You have done a lot of tatting!

  5. I am so glad you had a great craft show!!! :) Ours were slow according to seasoned crafters, but I am still learning. ;)
    Have a great New Year!!! :)

  6. Hi Michelle, just wondering if you are still around and how you are doing. I miss seeing your tatting.


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