Day 8 and the Winter Tatting Exchange

Hi,
Its is bitterly cold again today, no more snow but we had a hard frost last night and the temperature has not gone above freezing all day. Its going to be another hard frost tonight and we might have some snow at the weekend. I really want to get Mother bungalow cleared now, we are nearly finished and it should be all done by the end of next week.
Today I am showing you Day 8 of the TIAS (Tat it as seen) now do you have any ideas yet, I have but I am not telling, I think it might be an animal.

This is what came though my letter box yesterday, I joined the Winter Tatting Exchange on "Intatters" back in late September, I know I sent mine late due to the problems and not having a great deal of time, I have not heard if the person has received it yet so I will post it if and when I have heard. Anyway this parcel arrived from the USA, from nctatter she sent a snowflake, a Christmas card, a skein of beautiful hand dyed thread, a packet of Valentine sweets, 2 glittery Easter eggs, and a notepad. On the note it said she wanted to send something for 3 holidays. It was a nice surprise, I thought it was lost in the post, but it arrived.
A close up of the snowflake, the white middle and lovely colouring around the outside, very different from the usual plain white. It was shuttle tatted in Lizbeth thread, sorry I don't know which one she used.
I hope you are keeping warm, stay safe and until we meet again take care.

Hugs

Margaret
