Gonna Tat Like It's My Birthday

Last year I was fortunate enough for my birthday to fall on Tatting Tea Tuesday. This year, as the big day falls on a Wednesday, I'm gonna tat like it's my birthday.

Because today IS my birthday! LOL 

The Sprout liked this (no doubt because of the large robot):




I thought this one was hilarious!





♥ from Postie
Two tatting parcels were waiting when I got home  yesterday. It is hard to be blue when you know you have tatting goodies from postie! Here's what I got:


Icelas sent the lovely vintage handkerchief with matching thread and a handmade bookmark as a blog giveaway prize. A few others (Tatskool, Lace-lovin' Librarian Diane, Vanessa) have tatted incredible edgings recently. Looks like it is my turn.

Honestly, I've not seen such a perfect match between thread and cloth. Well done, Icelas! And thanks for sending such a pretty prize package my way.

Heather, the Tarnished Tatter, has been having fun dyeing new HDT. She sent two skeins: IsDihara's Dream in size 50 and Summer Brights in size 40.

Your eyes do not deceive. She named a colorway after me. Isn't that just the bee's knees?

Alas, I must buckle down and get my county fair entry finished, mounted or shadow-boxed or some fashion of presentation. So these tempting threads will be whispering sweet nothings in my ear for a short while.

Next post -- photos of me teaching my niece to tat!

Happy Birthday! Your Bday videos are cute! I can see why sprout likes the big robot.
Good luck with your fair entry.

Gina said...

So....that means it's your birthday? Or you're just tatting like it is? LOL!

At any rate, Happy Birthday, Happy Tatting, and enjoy it all!

Gina, yes! Today is my birthday. "Tat Like Its My Birthday" was a much more manageable headline than "It's My Birthday and I'll Tat If I Want To." *grins*

Thank you to ALL for your wonderful wishes as I edge ever closer to the "golden years."

Happy Birthday Isdihara. Hope you had a great day. Tatted edging on a vintage hanky sounds interesting. I would never have thought of that. I agree it matches so well. Your county fair doily is gorgeous. I love how the Lizbeth linen and treebeard goes together. Another great matching of colours. Good luck at the fair.
