cq, doily, motifs and Ketchikan AK

Doily finished from Catherine Austin's book, "A New Twist on Tatting". It is tatted in size 20 purple/white variegated.

Block is almost completed, basket is filled with silk ribbon flowers and ladybug buttons are flying around. Mary Corbet had a nice chain-beaded seam tutorial this week. It is along the green and easy to do.

Hooked rug flowers are finished. Waiting for wool from Dorr Mills to dye grey to hook the edges.

Pickin cherries, have 10 1/2 pts in the freezer and more to pick.

These guys have devoured the dill. I harvested and dried  the dill weed earlier and save the rest for the Monarch butterflies.  No comparison to store bought and easy to grow.

I purchase some motifs from   She is going out of business and has a sale.  Very nice motifs and ready to join Kathy Shawkl's   dying class.
The recent plane crash in Ketchikan, Ak was in the Misty Fjords where we took many trips on the wkend. The first picture is Eddy Rock, awesome, right in the middle of the water. Next is Wilson Lake flying in for a week's stay at Cabin. Sean and Dick unloading and pilot getting ready to take off. Last picture is Ella Lake, Linda and Dick catching trout. Back in the 80's the pilots, loaded with tourists would bee balm us ...Here are the Natives!! We go remote places for peace and quite and get away from the 4-5 tourist ships every day. Many lakes in the Misty Fjords and the main body of water has sheer cliffs on both sides. This is no place to visit on a rainy, windy Day!!!

Thank You for visiting me and love your comments. Looking forward to seeing all the beautiful projects people are working on at Kathy's Quilts

Your doily is so beautiful. I love tatting, but I have completely forgotten the little I ever knew. All of your work and your stitching is so lovely. Have fun in the dying class. I look forward to seeing what you do! You can have my share of both fishing and fish. =)
