Craftree Tat-A-Long completed

I completed the 2015 Mystery Tat-A-Long from Craftree.  All 9 parts.  I really think you can see my improvement in my tension as each part was added.

 My oldest finished off Kindergarten last week.  I am so very proud of how hard he worked all year!  Here he is on the last day of school going out the door to catch the bus.

He was done smiling by this point as he thought I was going to make him late and miss the bus.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Day 147 Hannah Lynn

Hello!!  I've managed to complete another diagonal row on Hannah Lynn.

Here she is on Day 128.

I know that looks like a major knot at the bottom but so far I haven't had any knots that were very bad.  That was one of my fears when I started parking but so far so good.  

And here is day 147.

I am about two and a half rows from a page finish so I am very excited to get that page finished and move on to something else for a bit.  Next up is my Beatrix Potter bunnies but I may slip something little in to do first.  I need a break from doing all these full coverage pieces.  They can be draining!

Ta-Ta for now!

It is TUSAL time again!!  Probably 90% of these orts are from tatting but I am ok with that :)

Happy stitching!!

Craftree tating SAL

I found a website for tatters, maybe a forum would be a better name for it, Craftree and right now they are having a mystery SAL and here is my so far.  This is up to part 5 and there are 9 parts all together so this is going to be a large doily.  

I know this doesn't look like much right now but at my stitching meeting the other night one of the ladies told me that after it is washed it should lay a lot nicer so I can't wait to finish it so I can give it a bath.
