Hi,

Its time for another challenge at the CD Sunday challenge blog,  as usual its anything goes as long as the rule of the challenge are followed,  The host this fortnight is Carol.

For my card this fortnight I have done something a little different with some views of Somerset,  the county I live in.  I found some images free on goggle and team them up with two different backing papers left over from other challenges.  I used one from Click print and go My craft Studio,  and one from Pollyanna Pickering Farmyard days.  Finished off with silver peel offs and a ribbon bow

Rabbit shuttles and memories


 Hi


In my last post I said how sad I was that Carollyn had died,  I have some very treasured memories from her,  firstly her beautiful writing,  it made my writing look well awful,  and the bunny shuttles she made and sent to me,   I am sure I have other things she sent me in my box of memories that she made and sent but the bunny shuttles will always be my favourite of all.   She was the most inspirational tatter you ever wish to know and her blog was always full of inspiration.  I remember her tatting around leaves she picked out of her garden, who would think of using a leaf in tatting.

My one wish was that I wish I had meet her,   She used to call me her little English tatting friend I hope she is tatting with the angels.

Here is a link to her Blog ,  do have a look at her wonderful work,

Rest in Peace Carollyn


 Hi

Tonight I am feeling very sad as my firend Carollyn has died this week,  we did a lot of tatting over the years,  we used to do the Pinterest challenge together, Mushaan’s and Suzanne.   Together we designed one of her key patterns when I injured my hand and could not tat I sat designing the key pattern that went on to a snowflake, ice drop which we called Taj Mahal.  I have added the three photos of the Taj Mahal patterns.  We shared a lot of ideas on tatting and have been firends for many years.  

Rest in peace my dear friend,  I will miss you RIP

Baby knitting


Hi

This is first of three posts of baby knitting I have done recently,  I know that the person it went to does not read and possibly does not know I have a blog,  so I am safe in posting it,  as it has been passed on to her,  she is the partner of Vernon’s nephew and we know that she’s having a girl due anytime now.


Close up of the pattern 

The pattern is wonder-soft Stardust no 9522,  and I used James C. Brett baby marble wool  double knitting wool in shades of pink. I also made a hat to match which was not in the pattern but I used the number is stitches from the other pattern 


The  back


The hat,  the photo looks a bit dark but it was the same wool and colour as the cardigan

CD Sunday Challenge # 69 Anything goes


 Hi,

Times for  another challenge at the CD Sunday and again as always it is Anything goes as long as rule 3 is followed.   The host this fortnight is Jocelyn

For my card this fortnight I have used a download from Debbi Moore's web site,  I loved this download with the panda, and it makes a lovely side card.   I did not add anything more to the card than the pieces that came with the download.  It was very straight forward to put together just a little fussy cutting.

Tatted Donut Rings



 Hi,

I hope you are all well hopefully as I have published  as I am scheduled this post the sun will be shinning and the weather is a bit warmer.

I have been a bit slow with my tatting recently,  but I made this two tatted donut rings from some thread that was left over on the shuttles,  

I used Lizbeth thread no 20 in Spring Gardens and Summer Fun,

I also made two pairs of earrings in the same thread which I was hoping to add to this post but I have not added the fastenings but I will post when I have done so,
