PIF Giveaway

Okay, I know requiring 10 commenters was bit adventurous for the PIF giveaway. So, since there were only 9 comments made, I will do a drawing for the winner. Of course, Gina's rules still apply and they are:

Here are the rules: You must "Pay it Forward" and keep it going, by displaying the PIF graphic and offer a give away. The handmade gift you make is of your choice. You can state it at the time of your post or not; it's up to you.

Drum roll please.......and the winner is.......Karen. Congratulations!!!!
Karen, please leave a comment with your blog info and a way for me to contact you.

Secret Valentine package

Here is the Secret Valentine package that I received in the mail from Kathy Bailey. It was so exciting to open up the wonderful treasures. She did not know that I collect cups and saucers. The dish towel looks wonderful displayed in my kitchen. And of course, the chocolate is yummmy. Thank you Kathy.

Tea is for Tatting

This is a wonderful book. I can't wait to start making teapots. If you have not purchased it yet, you need to rush over to Martha's site and order it.
I have completed my last snowflake for the Round Robin and will post once Abby Carlson receives it.

Knitting Stitch Markers

I am participating in the Great American Aran Afghan project with my local yarn shop. I must clarify--I am not a knitter. I am a tatter. I took knitting lessons several years ago. Have made a felted purse, dog sweater, and a scarf. That is the extent of my knitting. Knitting STRESSES me out--scared to death of those dropped stitches that with my luck cannot be fixed. I decided after doing this project I will either love to knit or I will not want to do it ever again.

Each square uses several charts so check out my stitch markers that I made. I had never wrapped wire before. I think they turned out pretty good for my first try. They work great.

RR Snowflake #3

This snowflake is #19 from "Christmas Ornament Collection" by JoAnn Stearns and tatted in Lizbeth thread variegated #112 and solid #684. I really like how it turned out so I will make another one for my tree. This snowflake goes to Bob Shotton.
The next comment on the PIF post will be the winner....Good luck.
