Snowflakes Tatted, CQ Cardnial and Owlets

 Snowflakes 1 and 2 and the  tatting pattern is by Nancy Tracy. Snowflake 1 is Blue Ice tatted with Lizbeth 40 and Snowflake 2 is Lizbeth White size 80.   I sprayed them with Stiffen stuff from Hobby Lobby using a 40% coupon (Little spendy at $9). It is like a liquid glue and really works!

 Finished another Hexie Block.  I call it the Cardinal and the Owlets!! The cardinal is felt appliqued and the owlets are tatted.

Have the middle of a baby quilt started.

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    Slow Stitching Sunday ...

Appliqued butterflies, CQ Lady, Tatted 30's doily and flower

The geranium brightens up the room during this cold winter day! We still have snow patches but not like 80 miles to the south were some roads are not plowed with 4 foot drifts and some 6 foot on both sides of the road.

Finished the hand appliqued butterflies on flowers. They get lost in the green fabric so I will sashed them with black. It will be a runner to hang on the back of my long table the TV sits on. Will cover up the cords and brighten the area up.

This is my first hexagon block completed. There are a few different ways to finish it and attach to more hexes. It is one of a series of blocks in Kathy Shawkl's classes.

Here is a doily made during the 1930's by a relative. When the thread ran out they just tied a knot and went on. One can see some of the tuffs of thread. Still beautifully tatted.
