And... week 21 of the COC

Here is a little Christmas tree ornament for my week 21. Working on my week 22 as we speak, so stay tuned!

Christmas Challenge..better late than never!

Week.. 20? Ok, I know I am behind. Sometimes life just slaps you up side the head!
So, here we go..
Here is "Dolly". In case you don't recognize her, she is one of the Misfit Toys from the Christmas classic TV show Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.  Yes, I have started another 'epic' project. I want to make the characters from the show and put them in their own little scene. I made her first because in the show, it seems she is wearing a tatted lace collar!  In an effort to catch up with my challenge, not every week will there be a Misfit toy, as they take a while to make. So, be prepared for a smattering of different ornaments to appear.
But for today, I present...Dolly.

Just a note...or two.

Whew! I have been so busy with my knitting, I have been quite remiss in the tatting department! I have been doing swaps, which have been knitting and crocheting. I will blog them on my dog goneknit page later.
I just finished another 'ornament'  for my challenge, and need to catch up quite a bit. The ones I am currently wanting to do will take a bit longer than normal, but catch up I will! I will post a picture tomorrow.
Now, if you know me you know I love Halloween. Here
is the Ecectic Halloween Artists Group page. Such lovely Halloweenyness. They are having a giveaway, so check it out!

Indiana State Fair 2010

I recently went to our state fair with my best friend and her husband. I didn't enter anything (as it is tooooo pricey to enter), and how I do wish I could have entered Bellaluna! 
 I met a lovely lady named Mary Rinker, who was demonstrating tatting! She isn't online, but we had a nice long chat and I encouraged her to come join us online tatters. She told me not many people knows she tats, even her pastor was surprised when he saw her demonstrating at the fair! Here she is showing someone the basics, and here is her display.
There was one display case of tatted items that were entered. Here they are...and in many cases, you can read the names of the exhibitors...Congratulations ladies!!
here's a close up of the pattern for that bag.. for those of you interested.

Foreign comments

Just to let everyone know.. if I can't read your comment(at the moment I have gotten many that look to be Chinese or Japanese), or at least translate it(I can translate the Spanish and French), it will be deleted.
Most of the Chinese or Japanese comments seem to be ads for 'risque' sites.. so out they will go.
On a lighter note, I will be posting a couple of pics from the State Fair here soon. Had a nice time though it was 110 degrees!!!
