Happy Birthday Clyde

Look at what arrived in the mail today just in time for my birthday. It is the snowflake that I won from Diane's blog and along with it she sent one of the wonderful braided cords she is making. I wish everyone could see it in person so you could see just how beautiful it is. Thank you very much Diane.

I had a very enjoyable birthday and to top it off my best friend cooked supper for my partner and I which I really appreciate because I do not think anyone should have to cook on there birthday. Many thanks to all who sent birthday greetings my way they are greatly appreciated.

Number 100

This is my 100th post on this blog and to celebrate I am going to show you two things that made me happy today. The first was the arrival of two shuttles from The Shuttle Shop one decorated with a tiger and one with a Celtic knot. They are both made from Tulip-wood and are going to be wonderful to tat with.

The second is this plant we bought the other day it is a gerbera daisy and I just can't believe the number of blooms it has and how wonderfully colourful they are.

I would like to thank everyone who follows my blog and a special Thank You to those that leave comments. I appreciate each and every one of them.

What I Am Up Too

Well you are probably wondering what is happening in my wonderful little tatting world. I am afraid it is not to exciting but it brings me joy because I am going to be sharing the joy of tatting. I have been busy tatting little motifs to give away at the seniors center today when I am doing a presentation on tatting. I am going to have some of my tatting on display. My tatting photos playing on a power point display and I will be tatting and answering any questions people may have. All this is to promote lessons I will be offering there come September.

The tatting demonstration went well and was enjoyed by all. People really appreciated the gift of a small piece of tatting. There where a few who knew how to tat but have not done it in many years so if there is enough interest not only will there be a beginners class there will be a refresher course.

On a sad note. When I got home today my little dog Ali could not use her one back leg. I took her to the vet and there is nothing broken or displaced so she thinks it may have something to do with the spinal cord. If she gets any worse I will have to have her put down as I will not allow her to suffer in any way. She has been to kind not to be treated with great love. Please keep Ali in your thoughts.
