Busy, Busy, Busy

Unfortunately I am unable to post pictures as I am temporarily located at my partners Dad's house where I am looking after him for a couple of weeks as he recuperates from knee replacement surgery. I am Keeping busy in the tatting world tatting Ruth Perry's Celtic Snowflake in Apple Blossom HDT. It makes nice bright snowflakes for the Christmas tree. I am now trying to decide what colour to tat the remaining snowflakes I need to make and it is a toss up between burgundy and variegated yellow. What do you think?

I hope your partners Dads' recovery is uneventful :) My Mom had the same surgery last year and her quality of life is soooo much better now.

Definately tat it in Burgundy! Yellow snowflakes are just WAYYYYYYYyyyyyy too close to yellow snow...and we all know what yellow snow is, right? And you should never eat it, right??? LOL!

I hope your partner's dad recovers quickly. My brother-in-law had that surgery four weeks ago, and he's having a rough go of it.

My choice... burgundy! What about burgundy and yellow combined? Or yellow?

Gregg's Dad is coming along very well especially considering he is 85 years old. I think you may be right tattingchic I had not thought about the yellow snow thing. Burgundy is looking better by the moment.

I definitely vote for burgundy. It will show up beautifully on the tree. Hope you get lots of tatting done and Gregg's dad gets well very soon.

I'm with the burgundy, Clyde, but it would look stunning combined with white run through with a glittering sulky!

LOL! Yellow snow...but you could also think of it as bits of sunshine.

I don't remember if you said what color tree. I know someone mentioned getting a white tree and in that case, burgundy will show up better than yellow but if it's a green tree, you'll need something with the burgundy to make it stand out, like silver or white. When we've tatted miniature ornaments for small trees for auctions, we found that darker colors got lost on the tree. Just something to keep in mind.

And bless your heart for helping out with dad's recovery! It's been duly noted that you have a generous spirit from the many actions you've taken in the past with others...life will be good to you.

On the bright side, after knee surgery there's much less pain than before the surgery.

Hi! I am Traci - tatting in Ohio. Your snowflakes and Maple Leaves are TD4!
I vote for burgandy and yellow together - i think that would be stunning!
Good luck in nursing - isn't tatting the most mobile? I always have some with me.

Have you heard of "tatted hugs"? I am looking for a pattern.
Thank you! traci
