Tatting and Goodies

After Mr Crocodile went for his swimming lessons, it became quiet in the house. Ahh finally, time to tat. I thought I should revisit tatting a sheep. I tatted this sheep some time back here. Wow, it was almost a year ago. The pattern is from Sheep May Safely Graze by Karey Solomon. This was tatted in #20 Opera Ecru.

This pair of earrings was tatted a couple of weeks back, right after I tatted the pendant in the same pattern. Interestingly I found a spool of red metallic thread that I don't remember anything about. And voila!

Recently I got lucky and won in 2 giveaways. The first was actually an El Dorado doily giveaway by Two Shuttles. I didn't win the doily but I was the winner of the mystery tat. LOL. Isn't this peekaboo ornament cute? It's done in Lisbeth thread 'Jewel'. There is a metallic-thread butterfly hanging in the middle.

Last week, Bumpkin Bears had a giveaway too and I won a pack of her 'Friends for Tea' cards. I've been 'stalking' bear artists' blogs and this is one of them. Catherine is very talented. Apart from making teddy bears, she draws cute bears too.

It's the weekend again! YAY! I'm going to watch a play on Saturday afternoon with an ex colleague and her daughter. Another ex colleague's playing a role in it. I'm looking forward.

Heehee, have you noticed... my blog now has a 3-column layout instead of 2? Of course, I had some tips from Gina (aka the Tatting Goddess) who pointed me to the Three Column Blogger. Thanks, Gina.

Meanwhile, do check out the giveaways I've listed on my left sidebar.
