Look at what I won from Jane at Five Minutes of Fame! A package of fabric charms! This is just a small sampling of the 18 fabrics in the pack. They are small 5" squares of fabric. Jane offered a giveaway for her 300th post. I loved this very same group of fabrics although all I saw was the one with the Christmas tree on top. I thought I could embellish the tree with some tatting and beads. I also have a long-standing desire to make a Christmas quilt and these color coordinated fabrics can get me started nicely.

Then the dear woman had surgery and couldn't get around as well....I'm amazed she was able to follow through after all that. Thank you Jane! I'll be working with these as soon as time allows...not for a few months yet.

In the meantime, I crocheted the remainder of some DMC into the Romanian Point Lace cord. I'll be couching it down later this week. Thought I would get to it this weekend but I've run out of time.

I got the ribbon for the hanky and even got it threaded through but I haven't finished off the ends yet....again, I ran out of time, but should get it done tomorrow night.

I've also been tatting the last of Tami's anniversary win. I should be finishing it up right now so that I can send it off tomorrow but it looks like it will be another day yet. Where does the time go?

I wonder how our tatting friends have done in South Carolina for the Palmetto Tat Day? We should be hearing about it any time now!


  1. Congrats on your win!

  2. Lucky Lady, to win! I can 'relate' to the hankie. I began mine and decided it was too plain and am adding M Konier's Maids of Homor. It will be about 2" deep when completed. One could never calculate the love that goes into our tatting for specia folks. Ii truly is 'priceless'.
    Beautiful work Gina...
