What A Weekend!

We had a busy weekend!  Jim took the old latticework off the front porch and replaced it with new, sturdier picketing.  We finished getting the big garden ready for the growing season.  Everything is planted- finally! 

I managed to get in some tatting amongst the weekend chores.  The Valdani Luxury Pearl Silks were calling to me and I got a number of foundations done.  They will be fleshed-out, embellished and completed over the course of the week.  Here is a peek at a couple works-in-progress:

A lovely blue piece and-

a peach brandy delight!

Both feature a button center for support and for adding additional tatting and accents.  A few Swarovski crystal bicones were tatted in for good measure.

I'll have more images later in the week of the finished pieces and possibly a pattern.

We had a bit of a storm front move through late last night and the yard is full of downed limbs and debris.  Guess I had better get busy cleaning up the mess.  Have a wonderful day!
Until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!
