Now today I've got a funny thing to tell you. Well, two, actually.
My friend Ros has a birthday just after Christmas and the first funny thing to tell you is that she loves my tatting. She's a pleasure to make things for as she likes it loads. Admittedly I usually make her jewellery and she always gets one of my Christmas designs too. She gets 'just because' presents mainly, though.
Anyway, just before Christmas she needed help with re-hanging her curtains so I wandered up to her place and fixed them for her. I decided that I'd make her a runner for her windowsill so tatted the set of motifs below to match her colour scheme.
Well, I couldn't see her on her birthday so took up the present the day before and told her not to open it. Next day she rang to say thank you and I asked her what she'd done with it. Second funny - she said she'd put it on her windowsill!!!! Well we must be able to read each other's minds!! In case you wonder - this is the motif.
