I haven't been tatting

I've been doing this instead

The ruler is in there for perspective. I should probably add a couple of small flowers around the outside. I've got 3 squares done, another butterfly and a bird. I was thinking of doing a quilt. The embroidery is the easy part. Having to stitch it all together doesn't sound like fun. So I may have to think of something else to do with a handful of embroidered squares. It always amazes me how heavy a little square feels when it's been embroidered.

Stunning Silver

Busy, busy, but I just have to show you what was sent to me recently.
Aren't they gorgeous? So delicate that they look like a puff of wind would blow them away, but so sturdy they could stand up. These, of course, are silver tatted earrings made by Alan aka Joyful the clown. They are simply elegant and something I shall certainly treasure. Now, what can I wear to go with something this beautiful? They are definitely not blue jeans and sweatshirt attire. Although, come to think of it, if you wore these with blues jeans and sweat shirt, you'd definitely be dressed up.
