To be clear, the County Fair isn't until July, but, this year, I am not waiting until the last minute to get ready!
I am going to enter my Chinese Dragon shawl (seen on my knitting/crochet blog) but, oh my, I don't have much tatting! THERE MUST BE TATTING IN THE FAIR!
Ok, whew, I am ok now. The reason I don't have much tatting is that I have been doing a lot of swaps this year, and giving away stuff. And now that it is warm out, I have been doing outdoorsy things, too. The 'big' 3D project will most likely not be finished in time, so I am turning my time turner to these projects.
I have an ornament I tatted, a variation on Ginny Weather's spider on the ball ornament, and I am almost finished with another addition to my "Misfit Toys". Technically, it is not a toy, it is Rudolph, but misfit he is. I just have to finish a leg, and then I can show you. (spoiler.. he is SO cute!)
There is also a card making category. I have entered in the past and won a couple of times. I can either make a get well card or a new baby card. Watch here to see which I make!
I am planning on making a necklace of some sort, but it is still in the recesses of my brain. I don't know if I will make anything else tatted, we shall see. I do want to knit a pair of mittens to enter in the knitting category, so we'll see how the time table works out. And photos. I always enter photos.
I had better get busy! Only 9 weeks to go!
Ok.. I just got Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer finished. He's about 4" tall. cute huh?
