Martha's doll


I'm so, so, SO excited. I was asked to test tat for Martha's new book which should be available in time for Palmetto Tat Days

The theme of the book this time is toys and I've had the privilege to see some of them.  Then Martha asked me to test tat this little darling. It says 'Abbi' (my granddaughter) all over it so she'll be getting this - IF I can part with it!!!!

It was a delight to make and the pattern was so, so easy to follow too. It makes a pleasant change to see innovative patterns like Martha's as I'm bored to death with jewellery as it seems to be the only thing a lot of people make and show on Facebook!!!  

Facebook?  A place I visit once a day to post a link to this blog and which I steer clear of as much as possible as I find it a dreadful distraction.  Useful at times when I needed to post about a local problem I got involved with quite by accident at 3 a.m. the other morning but apart from that - a place I can live without.

I'm waiting now for another pattern to test for Martha - can't WAIT.

  10. So so cute. I'm glad I went back to look. It reminded me I need to tat your butterfly doily for a cancer survivor or mine who loves butterflies.
