I have had to make Lace by the Yard for the lovely lady who uses it as trim for baby blankets! She has been using my lace for over 5 years, and still making blankets for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
While making lace for her, I was inspired to make a Rocking Horse for her, too!
This horse is made with Size 10 - White - Crochet Cotton.
For those who don't know - my mother has Alzheimer's. So, every year I try to raise funds to donate to Alzheimer's Association and I participate in the Alzheimer's Walk. With that in mind, everything that I sell during this time of year 100% of the funds goes to Alzheimer's!
Since I am busy trying to raise funds, I thought Why not make Awareness Bracelets?! So, I tatted one for me!
Light Blue for Thyroid Disease (me), Purple for Migraines (me) and Alzheimer's (Mama). (Sorry for the poor photo quality - I took this photo with my tablet.
Then I decided to do all Purple for Alzheimer's!
Then I thought about my friends who support other causes and decided to tat up some others.
These are for Autism and Asperger's Syndrome
Pink - Breast Cancer
Blue & Pink - Adoption, Lost Child, Birth Defects, etc.
Red - American Heart Association, DARE, MADD, etc.
These aren't new ideas - I have been making these split ring bracelets for years, just never thought about making "Awareness Bracelets" until this year!
I also make Team/School colors!
And, that brings me through the month of July with my tatting!
