Tias day three , Valentine Cupcakes and Rose Flower Pin

Today we have some beautiful sunshine, but its cold and we had a frost this morning which in parts of my garden has not given yet, even though the sun is shinning.
This is Day three of the Tias (tat it as seen) I still have no idea what it might be, possible an animal who knows, well Jane does but she's not letting on. Today there were two spilt rings they are the two rings at the top, I was trying to do them the other day and could not do it, today I looked at the pattern, took a deep breath and took the bull by the horn and it work
I am working on tatted baby booties at the moment. I have done another horse shoe which I have nearly finished and made a box for. I will post it another day to show you.

Now this is my Valentine cup cakes, the roses I have knitted and made up my own pattern they were very easy and then knitted some leaves again I made up the pattern on the hoof and I am very pleased with them.

Close up to show the rose.

This is a flower pin using my knitted rose pattern again I did it on the hoof just extending the knitting and this is what I finished up with and I added two leaves, the same as the cup cakes.
I will post the pattern when I have written it out on my new pattern blog when I find time and feel well enough to get it off the ground.
Update on illness I have had all the tests now and I am waiting for an appointment to see the surgeon and to get the test results. Last Thursday I was signed off work for another month.
I hope you find this post interesting, and look forward to seeing you again as you pass by in blog land. In the meantime I hope you are keeping well and take care.
