Week end funness ....

Isn't this charming?

CathyB, blogging at
and her Mom, Marlene,
came to Indiana over the
past week-end.

Marlene tatted the motif +
CathyB finished into a cute

Thx Marlene and Cathy ; )

You can see more pictures of the tatted tartlets
HERE and HERE ...
some with butterflies, some with round motifs.

Marlene wanted to learn
how to create split rings ...
and, I did my best to show her how I make them.

I think she has the technique down ..
and, her tatting is spectacular!   Even tension,
she has a good eye for patterns ; )

And, she had a stack of tatting to show.
Am I ever gobsmacked by her beautiful bookmarks,
cross, round motifs - ornaments.   Wow.

Did I mention the butterfly she had?   She takes
two fibers and tats them at the same time.
It make a thick tatted butterfly, but the colorway is awesome!
(I should have taken a picture)

We had lunch at 
Mucho Mas! + they
continued on to the Outlet Mall.

Such a nice afternoon.    Wish we all lived closer.
Thank goodness for internet, blogs, and e-mail.
