Good morning, dear readers!
I enjoyed hearing about all of the holiday projects you've got going. At the moment, I am actually working on a little something for myself. Remember the wonderful vintage Juliana brooch I found in hunter orange? Well, I am keeping that beauty for myself and am in the process of enhancing it with tatting. Here is the primary foundation round:
I used Valdani Luxury Pearl Silk in S49 "Subtle Elegance". It took quite a while to get each perimeter navette enclosed with tatting. Now to add additional rounds and accents of pearls and Swarovskis. I plan to get this one finished fairly quickly as it will look great on the sweater I'm wearing for Thanksgiving!
What are you doing for Thanksgiving, dear readers? We are planning to have a nice, traditional Southern Thanksgiving dinner. I'll be serving turkey, collard greens, homemade rolls and cornbread, sweet potato pie, candied carrots, corn-on-the-cob, and sweet tea with mint. After we rest a bit from gorging ourselves, we plan to take in a movie.
Are any of you planning to shop on Black Friday? I avoid the "sales" and "specials" like the plague. My refuge is the Atelier. Whilst everyone is running around to get the best deals, I am ensconced in my tatting chair, sipping gourmet hot cocoa and tatting to my heart's delight. Yes, I am one of those people who has already done ALL their Christmas shopping- it was finished in August.
Well, I am ready to get on with the tatting. Hope you have a marvelous day full of creatitivy. Until tomorrow~
