Rather than using 2 needles as in her directions, I needle tatted each leaf in one round.
I like the look of the leaf skeleton, showing the leaf 'veins'.
I have discovered many wonderful and kind people in blogland-- people I probably would never have met without today's technology. Just recently, my heart was touched by their kindness.
I can't wait to tat with these beauties!
I had hoped to purchase one of her colors, 'Purple-Magenta', in size 30 thread, but that size was not available.
Imagine my surprise and delight when my new thread order arrived and Anika had generously included a skein of the 'Purple-Magenta' in size 30!
She'd dyed it just for me! ( It's the second from the left. Isn't the color wonderful?)
Now, that is just kindness and thoughtfulness in action!
Thank you so much!
Linda of Chalky's World blog sent me this surprise package all the way from the U.K.
We'd been chatting about grandbabies on the way. She'd shown a few pics of the bibs she'd made for her grandchild arriving in December, and I'd commented on how adorable they were. My DD is expecting a little girl next month, and I'd told Linda I was thinking of tatting edgings on some bibs.
I was so moved to receive this unexpected surprise. Linda, you have touched my heart with your thoughtfulness. Thank you so much! The bibs are now on their way to DD in Australia. They should arrive at the same time as baby makes her appearance!
From 'gay Paree' to me....
Jillayne was in France for holiday, and, once home, sent me these lovely items!
a Giverny postcard, poppy bookmark, and French laces, with a very nice note.
I am spoiled! And I love it all!
Thank you Jillayne for thinking of me!
May you find kindness and caring hearts in your day.
Thanks for visiting.
