Our Block of the Month blocks are finally sewn together! Now to start on the borders. We had a very long 2 days of sewing and wonderful get together. Nice, small quilting retreat in our small town and go home at night to sleep in our own bed!!

Fall flowers have been beautiful and lots of blooms. My White and Pink cosmos are 6 feet. Lots of beautiful rain this year!!

Tatting ...Rocking Horse, Angels and Crosses


Tatted rocking horse is a pattern by Pam Palmer. The book was discontinued in 2011. It is tatted in size 80 with Lizbeth root beer. It will be added to a Santa Christmas Stocking.
Tatted angels and crosses are for a local shop. These are quick and easy so one does not have to charge a lot and they sell very quickly.  The Angel pattern is in Patty Duff's book of Motifs and tatted with size 20 Lizbeth threads. The crosses are a pattern by Eliz Davis in 1998 and they are tatted with  different brands of size 10  threads.
