The sun was low as I hurried to get a quick picture so will you please overlook the quality? Thanks.
The marigolds in the lovely blue canning jar were a gift from Mother this weekend. Since you so seldom get to see flowers around here, I thought I'd include them.
The tatted horseshoe is today's quick stringplay and the wonderful pattern is courtesy of Be-stitched. Her e-newsletter arrived in my mailbox this morning perfectly timed. I had grabbed a little bag with my tatting shuttle and thread this morning with the intent of starting something while visiting my mother-in-law.
I always say that tatting is the cheapest and most portable craft you can do. You really don't even need a little bag as you could fit both in a pocket.
Of course, who can be satisfied with only ONE ball of thread when they come in lovely colors and sizes?
What in the world am I going to do with a tatted horseshoe? I'll explain later. In the meantime, it was Sheep Shearing Day at the Norwegian Folk Museum this weekend. Why can't I go to Norway??
