Ruby Anniversary

Yesterday, my husband and I celebrated our 40th (Ruby) wedding anniversary. We went out for a meal in the evening with our son and daughter-in-law, Howard and Charlotte, and our best friends, Janet and Allen.

It was a beautiful meal, with plenty of reminiscing, laughing until we were crying, and of course, free flowing alcohol!

Picture Parade!

 The pictures of the arum lilies with leaves and the gladiolus have been sent to me from Christine Tse Yuet Ngor. She purchased my books some time ago and has now sent me pictures of what she has completed. She is really enjoying tatting my patterns and I think she has done a brilliant job!


Patty Markley from the Shuttelbirds tatting guild has sent me this picture of my Rosette Doily that she has made and is now sitting prettily on her table! Beautifully tatted, Patty!

Long time!

It's been quite a while since my last post! We have had some alterations at home and the extra work has really taken its toll on me, so much so, that I haven't tatted a stitch for two whole weeks! Now that isn't like me at all! I have an appointment to see a very special specialist about my back on 12th December and so I am keeping all my fingers (and toes!) crossed that he will be able to help me!
I have got as far as the 5th small doily around the coronet doily...I am very pleased with how it is looking and can't wait to get it finished, but the pain in my back will not let me lift my arms for long enough and with it being a complicated pattern I need to be able to concentrate. All I am doing at the moment are puzzles that I have downloaded off the internet onto my iPad!
