Today is my 99th post.
Here is the finish of the Beatrice Doily by Iris Niebach. Heather Johnston of Tarnished Tatter fame had a bit of Melamine in size 30 left and was kind enough to send me some. Please see this post for links to the book with the pattern and a link to Heather's blog.
This doily is now going to Heather to be used in a fund raiser for a gal with breast cancer.
Now my motif #2 for my 3rd challenge is officially done.
I have posted the Alternate Color Daisy Picot Flower to my patterns and techniques blog, the link is in the side bar. (the name is almost as long as the pattern)
I received these in the mail yesterday.
Jeff Hamilton of Bridge City Tatting fame also does Chainmaille and has a etsy.com shop where he sells his creations. I bought the earings and then asked Jeff if he could make me a cross pendant. If very willing obliged and the result is above. I took it to church with me and Father was very interested in it. I asked Father to bless it and he did. I will now wear this one when I want a change from the one that I wear every day. Thank you Jeff, your work is amazing.
I also received in yesterday's mail, some more of Heather Johnston's Melamine thread in size 30. Heather had a bit left and graciously sent it my way. Now I can finish the doily. Thank you Heather.
Now I am going to see if I can post my rainbow test
hhmmm didn't work, let see if I can figure out how to do this.
yup, had to click on the edit Html tab to do it. found that hint on Jon's blog, well, found out 1 thing, if you edit your post, the colors go away. and you need to get the correct html from spacefem.com again for the colors to show up again. I have no idea why my rainbow background is black, it was white before. I have kept a copy of the html code from spacefem.com so I can repost it after I edit this again. because I will be editing it.
I have finished the Beatrice doily. It has been blocked and as soon as it is cool and dry - I pinned it out and steamed it - I will clip all the thread ends, scan it and add it to this post later this evening.
Now back to my shrug. Not sure if I will get it done yet this evening, more likely the next couple of nights.
Oh, since it is my 99th post, I have something in mind for my 100th.
