Tatted Ribbon Strips

Hi,
Not a very good morning weather wise, and of course its going to rain its Glastonbury this weekend, It always amazes me they called it Glastonbury but actually Worthy Farm is in a village called Pilton, a few miles away from Glastonbury. Although the many visitor's who flock to see the music festival have become older and now its not quite so hippy as it was they have some very posh visitors in their expensive cars. We are far enough not to hear the festival but the traffic will be bad today as most arrive today, its not too bad while they are there until Monday and when they leave usually with a lot of mud trialling behind them. Some years ago there was a petrol station near to the site and it had been very wet, while I was filling the car up, my mother watch in amazement this visitor took off his muddy boots, washed his feet from the car wash and put his muddy boots back on. I am glad I don't have to wash their clothes when they get home. I hope they have enjoyable time this year, the police are as always busy and have new ways this year of catching the drug uses.
Today I bring you some tatted ribbon strips, it was Suzanne who gave me the idea seeing that many card makers are using lace on their cards, she wondered if tatting could be used, which of course it could be. These strips are 5½ inches long and 1¼ wide, they could be made longer or narrower. I have put these two sets in my esty store, I can do most colours if requested, it just a question of what a card marker would like, Tatting cannot be cut so making them to the lengths required, they could be made in shorter lengths or longer according to what is required.
I hope you like the new ideas and I am looking forward to seeing any comments which are always appreciated.
Until we meet again in blog land take care
Hugs
Margaret
