Then they were done!!!

Seven!!! Now I THINK I could have enough for another round but I'll admit now to being totally fed up with the colour!!! Seemed like a good idea at the time!!! I just may start another in white as I've plenty of that in size 40. 

I was very proud of myself the other day. I saw a splendid 'lot' on Ebay with several balls of size 40 in white. It was a reasonable price too even with postage. I kept going back to look at it for several hours and then decided I ought to go and check my own stash before buying it!! I'm glad I did - I've got two or three balls of white 40!!! So, having established that I may just start another much larger version of the Dora Young doily like this one. Who knows!!!!

I'm afraid it's not a very good picture but it's a possum from the Houtz book. 

I've never seen a live possum - only a dead one on a road when I was staying with Sandra in Atlanta. We don't get them here in the UK. I think they look kind of cute but I know Americans don't seem to like them!!!

A new design - I think!!!!

Well I was looking for it yesterday as I wanted to show you a new idea derived from it. I did a search on my site and it wasn't there!!! Now I must've deleted it somehow in one of my very senior moments so I've now put it back!!! Here's the link. 

As soon as I'd finished the Passion Flower motif I thought of another idea - BUT it sat at the side of me in Tat Corner for a year or more until I put it out of sight!!! Recently I thought about it again when I found it lurking in a corner of the tatting cupboard. Out it came and off went BC3 on another of his ideas!!!! 

The one shown below is OK but not quite right so I'll be experimenting more!!!
