Table Topper Tatted by: Marty Lewis
You can imagine how ‘blown-away’ I was when THIS came in the mail. Marty and I had made some agreements and in lieu of her idea; I asked for something she’d tatted. Well, I had in mind a book mark, coaster; something simple. However, this lovely table topper in my favorite colors arrived...Blue and Chocolate! To say thank you does not seem hardly enough, but I am so thankful for Marty’s gift and her beautiful work. I am blessed.
As if the table topper was not enough, I received these two dressed-up shuttles. One is a clover and one is an aero. I love the paisley blue swirl and I’m using the ladybug on a daisy for the necklace I’m working on at present. I need to finish it because I won’t have the use of my right hand for a while after my surgery. I have silk thread on the blue one for free-form flowers for the baby’s headband.
I heard that my friend Luz was very, very happy and blessed by her Blue rosary. I guess her friends asked her all kinds of questions about this Anglo friend who did this work. If it gave Luz joy, it fulfilled its mission.
Trying to get the necklace that matches the ear rings finished. I gave Kristen the ear rings to open at the Baby Shower on Sunday but I need to get the necklace finished since I can’t use my hand for a couple of weeks. It is Lynn Morton’s Filigree Triangular necklace on page 17 of her newest book, “Tatting Jewelry” I’m using OB gold thread and little seed pearls. Kris asked if I could replace the chain with tatting, so I’ll do split rings, for simplicity; as the triangle is elaborate. I’m using Tatskool’s Antique Gold HDT to replace the chain. Here is a peek to satisfy the curious!
My surgery is definitely scheduled for Good Friday (I know, but it was unavoidable) so I’ll be out of commission that weekend. I hope I feel well enough to get to services on Sunday; I’m going to try. Easter is my favorite ‘holiday’. Filled with hope, resurrection, and spring colors.
It is a Holy time for me.
