Blog Prizes

I recently won a prize from My Creative Corner's Blogiversary!! I was thrilled to receive in the mail this morning this lovely tatted cross for my Bible! How did Vicki know that I carry a very special tatted cross in my Bible...one my Grandma made for me when I was a child! It is one of my prized possessions!! So receiving this one was extra special, and will be at home in my Bible with the one from Grandma! Grandma's tatted cross is on the left with a red (my favorite color) ribbon through it, and the beautiful white one, on the right, is from Vicki!! This made my day!

Also in the envelope was loads of charms squares!They all have gold metallic thread in them, and will make for a pretty quilt!!

Thank you so much, Vicki!!

You were meant to win that cross, Conni. There is probably no one else out there to whom it would mean as much. I wonder if your gold thread fabrics are Asian.

tatting isn't a craft/art you see too much. It's beautiful!

I'm drawn to fabric with goldthreads but have never made anything from them. Starting to collect some asian fabrics.

I have two crocheted cross bookmarks that are both special to me. They are sweet and if I could make them, I would try. Years and years ago I crocheted a few snowflake ornaments for my C. tree, they were pretty, but I didn't like working with the small hook and thread. Maybe if I tried again now I might like doing it. I have never seen tatted ones like yours.
