HDT "Brown Rose" by Yarnplayer (Marilee) contender for rose center on BJ's Oval, "Sheep May Safely Graze" Doily
BOOKMARK TATTED BY MARILEE - YARN PLAYER WITH HER HDT, a rememberance from my favorite HDT person.
Spent the Saturday before Mother's Day tatting an Oak Leaf and acorns for the 25-Challenge which are posted; and, roses for the center of a new project. This is the basic rose with mock picots and I tend to loose count of the rounds. I was one short on the last round, so a bit lopsided. But I'm tatting my practice roses with different threads. Also, the thread isn't the color I had envisioned; however, I have some HDT (Marilee's), "Brown Rose", that looks like vintage, heritage roses. I want the roses to be perfect so will do some practice roses first. I think I have enough of the HDT skein to make the 3 roses I need.
Youngest daughter, BB, called to ask if her 'gift' had arrived safely. A lovely, large arrangement of White and Pink Tiger Lilies interspersed with white"Star-shaped" orchids, ferns. The aroma fills the room! Eldest daughter, Kristen, sent the neatest, red, bag organizer. It is a long strip about 5" wide, with pockets, flaps and many storage areas. It fits inside a tote or purse so one does not have to "fish" for their belongings.
Included are a lighted compact (one side is 8X magnification), a tweezers w magnification and a small clip light so you can see the bottom of a dark purse interior. Amazing! My first thought was - "oooh, I can use it for tatting that travels!" My second thought was, "Chin hairs!" . . .won't go into that - more information than you want to know! :>)
