Weekend Review

Good morning!
Hope y'all had a great weekend.  Mine was terrific- mostly.
I got a fair amount of tatting done Friday & Saturday, but was sucker punched Sunday by my seasonal allergies.  Perhaps playing in the Jeep with the top off whilst ragweed and goldenrod are blooming is not the smartest thing for me to do.  I spent the majority of Sunday with swollen, itchy eyes and a very stuffy head.
I do have a few images to share with you:
This is the begininng of a pendant using Valdani Luxury Pearl Silk with bronze freshwater pearls and red Swarovski bicones as accents.  I've done more rounds on this piece, but have not taken images as every time I go outside my eyes start giving me fits.  (One of my goals today- to take images of my recent work!)
Jim and I had a wonderful time clearing brush in the Piney Woods and cleaning up the outdoor living areas on the back acreage of our property.  With the recent light rains, the mushrooms and fungi have shot up all through the woods.  They are so bright & pretty.  I took some images as we went about our outdoor chores:
There are oodles of these red mushrooms along the paths.
And I'm not quite sure what this fungi is, but it sure is pretty.
Well, I am going to head to the Atelier with Lily Fey and savor my hot cocoa while getting in a bit of tatting before taking images later in the day- providing the weather cooperates and my allergies behave.  Hope you have a marvelous day & until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!


  1. hope your feel better soon, I have enough allergies too, and sympathize with you.

    I hope you are feeling better today and that the weather behaves itself, we have fog and misty rain although its a bit warmer.
