After a few rough months helping my sister care for her husband, things have improved to the point where I am back to stitching and playing catch-up on things. John is now able to feed himself and walk with assistance, so I am mostly needed to watch over him when she have to go out on errands.
This has been a lovely week!. I received a phone call from a high school classmate, and we talked almost 2 hours catching up on 50 some years of news. It was a great pleasusre. Then yesterday I won $3.00 on a spur-of-the moment Fantasy 5 purchase. Then this morning I got an email notifying me that I had won a bag of goodies on one of the blogs I follow! How great is that? Small blessings to remind me that God and life are good.
My Luscious Lace RR is just about finished. I'm working on the last block. Here are photos of the finished ones.
This lovely block of Cathy L's makes use of vintage hankie corners. I am just learning needle tatting so my yellow tatted motif is a bit lop-sided.
Gayle's block below allowed me to used several different laces.
Lisa's pink block is very feminine and took well to the laces I chose. I really enjoyed adding the little pink snail!
Nicki Lee's lovely bluebird silkie came about the time the bluebirds here around the house began nesting. So I enjoyed watching my bird friends while lavishing lace and bling on Nicki Lee's.
Well, since it is time to think of breakfast I'll sign off for now. Hopefully I'll get back soon. Have a blessed day. Quitly hugs,
I am an elementary teacher, retired to central Florida after teaching 27 years in southern Illinois. These are my adventures into the world of handcrafting, and the satisfying challenge of learning new skills.
