It's looming closer to Christmas. Seems like every year I start tatting for Christmas earlier and earlier. This year it was in June! Of course, I began my Christmas tatting a bit early because I donated 100% of my sells to Alzheimer's Association. My mother has Alzheimer's and two of my aunts had Alzheimer's (both of the aunts have passed away now).
As I began my Christmas tatting, I had a dear, sweet lady ask me for 200 candles! So on top of all the snowflakes I tat, I am working on candles! She can only make what she calls "little tats". like petals on flowers. She uses what I tat for her to make handmade cards - drawing leaves, bows, etc. on candles, wreaths, flowers. She has been doing this for years and is very creative with her cards!
I always intend to post photos of my tatting, but I usually end up giving it away before I snap a photo. This year, I am going to once again endeavor to make my 25 motifs. Some may be repeats, some may be new-to-me designs. But I will begin working on those just as soon as I finish these candles.
120 down - 80 more to go! I'm about at the end of my wick! :-)
