October Event Goodies

Today is the last day to "Join this Site" and have a chance to win these goodies:

Goodies include:  6 balls of Majestic tatting cotton, 1 spool of Trebizond silk, a tatted tac/pin, a variety of buttons, beads & pearls, a fat quarter of quilting cotton fabric and 17 (yes, 17) 10" squares of quilting cotton fabric!

I will be using a random number generator to select the winner about this time tomorrow morning.  The winner will be sent an email and also be announced on tomorrow's blog post.  To be eligible, one simply needs to be a blog follower.  Click the google "Join this Site" button to the right of the blog just below the poll.  Good luck!

Well, dear readers, what did you do this weekend?  I actually got some work done on my outdoor tatting areas!  As you know, Autumn is my favorite season.  I love the cooler temperatures, leaf and flower colors and just the general way it "feels". 

This is an old metal top kitchen table out by the screen tent where I often tat.  My husband showered me with mums, pansies and violas on Saturday!  I was so pleased!!!  Needless to say, I spent the rest of the weekend potting plants and doing lots of raking pine straw and pruning the mock oranges and roses.  I got very little tatting done, but now have a couple of  beautiful areas where I hope to tat lots of wonderful new goodies this week! 

This is a close-up of the gorgeous bronze mums Jim gave me.  Wouldn't thread in this color be fabulous!?!

This is a beautiful ruffled pansy that our daughter picked out for my tatting areas. 

Well, I am off to post notices of the deadline for this month's event on FB & InTatters.  I hope to get some tatting done later today so I have something interesting to show you tomorrow.

Until then~
Happy Tatting!
