Good morning, dear readers. This is "Penelope":
She was tatted with size 5 DMC perle cotton in color #4120 and is enhanced with a small vintage button and 6.5mm fresh water pearl. The rose is from one of my Jackson & Perkins English rose bushes, although I can't remember the name of the rose. It is one of my favorites beacause of its glorious color and scent- it's delightfully spicy.
I will be busy winding more skeins of thread onto cards today and making lists of all I need to restock the Atelier. This is something I really want to get done this week as Jocelin is on Easter/Spring break next week. I'd like to have plenty of time to spend with my girl doing all sorts of fun stuff. Don't worry- I have been busy planning interesting posts for you. There may even be a few free patterns coming soon! Be sure to keep your eyes open.
What do you, my dear readers, have planned for April 1st? This is International Tatting Day- a day when we all celebrate and share our love of tatting. Will you be teaching, demonstrating or sharing your tatting? I strongly encourage you to share your gift of tatting with someone. You never know what you may start!
Well, I am off to get those skeins wound onto cards. Have a marvelous day!
