Tatted ATC's

I 'met' some very nice people on CQ International, and arranged an exchange with two new friends. Sally sent me some of her stash-- a large box full of goodies.

Nicki sent me some of her gorgeous dyed laces, and I sent both ladies an assortment of my tattings. I've made them each an ATC and embellished it with some tatting and beads, just to say a little thank you. It's a surprise. And just in case they see this blog, they won't know just which is going to whom. I sure hope they like them.

 I thought you might like to see a pic. Sorry if the picture quality isn't the best...I'm still learning.

The background used to be my favourite scarf ! I knitted  it as a gift to myself a couple of years ago. Somehow, it ended up in the dryer. I wonder how that happened?

Oh, well, now it shall become little ATC's and part of some cards, perhaps, and I can share my fave scarf with other people!
Thanks for visiting.


  1. Thanks for the visit to my blog and leaving a comment.
    The ATCs look wonderful.

  2. Thanks, Vinnie. Wow! You are my first blog visitor! I've been following your blog for some time and love what you've been doing. Thanks for the visit, and for becoming my first follower!

  3. I haven't even heard the term "ATC" in a few years... I can't thank you enough for saying it! LOL.... Now I know what I can do with my tatting scraps, LOL. Thank you!!!

    I absolutely love those ATCs, too! The tatting goes perfectly with that "scarf"! Beautifully done!!!

  4. Thanks Stephanie for your comments, and for visiting my blog. CQ stands for crazy quilt, and I've discovered it's something I really enjoy, and I can use all my needlecrafts (beading, embroidery, needlework, knitting, tatting, etc.) embellishing the squares. What fun!

  5. Your ATCs are just beautiful - lucky ladies. Will you swap an ATC with me? Val's Musings
