Today Jim & I are busy making our lists of everything we need to get & do before the New Year weekend. He has several woodworking projects he needs hardware for and I need some new small plastic Plano boxes for my tatting accents (beads, buttons & the like). Any excuse to go to Academy Sports or Lowe's! Plus, I have not hit Hobby Lobby or Michael's for their post-holiday sales. I believe I'll hold off on those two until after the New Year- it seems that you get the best deals around the 2nd week in January.
Last night I did get some tatting done for myself!
Whilst watching "The Definitive Guide to Bigfoot" on the History Channel, I tatted myself another pendant. Who knew that tatting & Bigfoot could be so productive? This pendant is tatted with size 12 Valdani pearl cotton in M47 "Robin's Nest" and is accented with "Olive Matte" Czech seed beads, 3mm "Copper Rose" Swarovski bicones and a chocolate freshwater pearl. This evening I will try to get a pair of earrings tatted, too. This color goes very well with my APG camo shirts.
Be sure to comment on the Christmas Day post and/or Monday's post for your chance to win the prototype pendant & journal up for grabs in the New Year Event! The winner will be chosen & notified on Friday!
Well, I guess I need to go through the pantry and fridge and get the grocery list made out. Then I'll get back to cleaning and organizing my tatting accoutrements. We hope to get all of our running around done tomorrow well before the last minute New Year rush. Have a wonderful day doing something that makes you smile!
