Bell flower bauble


Don't forget January 6th and the start of the Tat It And See.

So, did you miss me yesterday? Did you think I was suffering a hangover after the New Year's Eve celebrations? 

Well if you thought I had a hangover then it would only have been because I was suffering from too much sleep!!! What I LOVE about NYE is going to bed REALLY early and reading for even longer than usual and then falling into a deep, deep sleep. Sometimes we're woken by the neighbours singing the new year in along the road and sometimes by fireworks but it's lovely to lie there and hear (very briefly) the revellers and think what they're missing by not being cosy in bed!!!  Am I a MOG?  Perhaps I am.  MOG?  That means 'miserable old git' in Jane language.

So, today I have another bauble to show you. Yes, worked all in one 'hit' and ready to 'go'. Not sure what I'll use it for but it's given me ideas for earrings. IF I'd written down what I'd done then I would've made another to match but as I didn't (write it down) I'll have to work another one or two or three or ........ Well - you get the gist!!!  Patience, Pigmini, patience.  You know it takes time for me to get things properly 'sorted'!!!

Happy new year Jane. You have started off really well. I love the bauble. Hope to be able to take part in the TIAS this year as I have missed a couple of years but always love to see what everyone does. From another Jane

It would also make a most wonderful Christmas tree! - and I don't "do"New Year's Eve either, never have - I loathe fireworks with a passion and far prefer my own hearth that night with perhaps last year's concert from Vienna. And shortbread. And sherry.

Uh oh, now you've done it, Maureen. I'll just HAVE to make a pair of Christmas tree earwigs for next year. Sorry, I mean later this year!!

Since I can't wear earrings, I would hang a tiny jingle bell inside and decorate my Christmas tree!

Sweet. It reminds me of a traditional hat worn in Lesotho! I like Diane's idea too.

Pigmini said...

Carry on telling her Maureen.... I agree, they WOULD make gorgeous earwigs!!! See Miss... someone else wants the pattern too!!! VBG

Baubles and beads, my how far tatting has come. It is an interesting shape, hats, skirts, trees, bells and so much more.
