Another old piece

Again found at the bottom of the suitcase I told you about a few weeks/months ago.

This must have been made about thirty years ago. It may even have been longer as I can't remember why I did it.

I know it was revolutionary in it's time but not many people have ever seen it!!!
I used beads in this piece and everything appears to be in 'node stitch' or Victorian sets.

I may have made this as a result of a book I was studying.
I'm not sure if this was somebody else's design or my own. If it was my own it would've been one of the first.

As I had nobody to share with in those days this picture has been lurking around several houses and the suitcase ever since!!
I may take the frame apart as it looks filthy on the under side of the glass!!!

Would that count as housework? If so then I won't break the rule of a lifetime and do that!!!

Palmetto 'tat off'

Even if you're not going to Tat Days you ought to take a peak at this page and wee pattern.
I don't know what it is but it tick-led (get it?) me to death!!!
Barbara's sense of humour is just up my street.  

If you've got time then the Palmetto Tatters always welcome bugs which they give away at their State Fair every October.  Any and every bug is always welcome.

Patchwork - tumbling blocks

Jane sent me this picture of her diamond patchwork mat.
I must admit I hadn't fully explored the extent of how this pattern could be used.
Thanks for letting me share this, Jane.  I MUST make time to have a go at it again myself now I've seen yours.

Hearts aplenty!!!

I was playing around the other evening and wanted to do some hearts to go on the purple buttons I bought a few months ago (again from the shop at the tip!).
I started off by using this pattern but changed it drastically as I didn't like the original very much.

Wonder where brain cell # 3 was at the time, eh?
Anyway, here's the result of my 'playtime'!!!!
