I have finished 2 tatting projects in the past 2 days.
one is the test tat for Martha Ess, her new book will be ready in the not too distant future.
the other project in my traveling one, I always have something to work on in my purse or car so I don't have to sit around twiddling my thumbs. I am not exactly a patient person.
As you can see, it has 7 arms not 6, so it is not an actual snowflake. I tried, but 6 just wouldn't lay flat, and I didn't want to have to block it . The thread is Flora size 20 in color 239.
I am trying to get all the canning caught up. We just put 500 lbs of beef in the freezer, so there is no more room there, so anything from the garden as to be canned. I did 14 qrts of dill pickles tonight, and there is an 18 qrt roaster full of apples cooking in the kitchen right now. there is at least another roaster full of apples still in the bag. I will make apple butter with what is in cooking now, and apple sauce with the 2nd batch. I can't leave it for this weekend, as I will be away (see previous post).
I have been using the Tattler reusable canning lids, and so far so good.
