     There were a lot of Christmas, craft kits in that estate sale box.  This Fad-of-the-month was an interesting technique.  The fake-wood was styrofoam.  A knife, heated over a candle, was applied to the brown styrofoam  to give the effect of wood burning on wood.  I would advise you to do this out side!!  The fumes are toxic!!

     We have 4 children getting confirmed.  I tatted them each a cross.  The crosses are from one of my favorite books by Lene Bjorn: "Tatted Bookmarks".  This was the first tatting book I bought.  The first two years of tatting, I used size 80 tatting thread.  This cross is called "Maria", done in size 80 thread.

Happy May Day

Happy May Day

    Does anyone celebrate May Day anymore?  Last Sunday, at Church, one of the little boys was looking at his song bird and thought it was a butterfly.  Explaining butterflies has four wings, not two.  So, I asked him if he wanted a butterfly on a paperclip.  This was simple to design, using size 20 thread.
