As much as I do not like the bombardment of Christmas before Thanksgiving has even arrived, I do know that if I want to get anything accomplished before that holiest of holidays arrives, I had better get going on some Christmas items.
And so I am tatting stars. The pattern is from my Aunt Mae who found it in a pile of tatting patterns from my grandma.
Yup. It truly warms my heart like you cannot believe that I am doing an exact pattern that once flew off my grandma's shuttle, too.
The size 10 thread is from here. (Love their speedy service -- phew!.....it seemed like I hit ENTER for my order and 'wheee!' the package was already in our mailbox!)
Ornaments for the tree...
...or I am even thinking of lovely little package toppers for the many gifts that family and friends will receive this year.
