An apology

To those who’s blogs I read regularly. 

For some unknown reason I can’t comment on those blogs at the moment. When I click from my dashboard reading list it takes me to the blog which I can read but it won’t let me comment. I’ve tried all my ‘appliances’ and it’s the same on all of them. 

When I look in the top right hand corner of the person’s blog it shows that I’m not signed in which is weird as it never used to be that way. So, I click on ‘sign in’ and it takes me back to the dashboard!!!

I’ve tried visiting my own blog then clicking on the blog I want to read from there but the same thing happens. Is anybody else having this problem and if anybody can suggest a way round it please let me know. I feel rude not being able to comment on blogs.

Juliana round 5

Well here’s round 5!!! Only five more to go. HELLLPPPPPP.

This one was quite straightforward or is it that I’m just getting used to the way the pattern is written? Who knows.

I must remember sometime to put a call out on the Facebook tatting groups that I belong to to see if anybody has any information about the book and/or the designer.  My big problem is that I don’t remember to go to Facebook very often and only seem to land up there when something really takes my interest via my inbox!!!

The book was published in 1952 as I’ve mentioned before. Queen Juliana became Queen of the Netherlands in 1948 which leads me to believe that this design was probably done around that time. I would so love to know as it’s taking huge (but happy) chunks of my life at the moment.

Poke proof pouches

Things maybe a bit quiet on this blog from time to time as I continue the task of translating and notating Juliana.  I apologise but when I get a project like this one I simply have to carry on with it so I don’t forget the idiosyncrasies of the design.

Here are a few of the poke proof pouches I'm taking to Palmetto Tat Days this year. Again if you want anything put by to save on postage please shout. I'm charging £7.00 for these as that’s what I was asking for last time I made and sold them!

I’ve found a different lining for this year’s batch and this has been tested through the washing machine too. In fact Nick remarked that it didn’t look as if the one I tested had been through the wash cycle which pleased me enormously.
