Snowflakes and Goodwill Finds

Here are my Goodwill finds.  The first is the Alien knit fabric.  Found this a couple of weeks ago.  It will make a nice top to wear at Tat Days this year.  The knit cro-sheen thread is my find yesterday.  Three full spools and one partial.  It does look a little dirty.  I am hoping that after washing it will come clean (will make a small motif to test out).

The snowflakes are from 24 Snowflakes in Tatting.  It is for the tat-along over in Craftree (two snowflakes a month).  A am a month behind but will catch up.  Snowflake no. 2 is made with size 20 Lizbeth, Blue Ice.  Snowflake no. 5 is Artiste embroidery floss from Hobby Lobby.  It is in the clearance bin for $0.15.  Can not pass a bargain. 

I have finished two 25 motif challenges.  I am now starting on my third.  These two snowflakes makes numbers 2 and 3 for this challenge.

Finished 2016 TIAS and Tat Days

First, here is my finished rabbit for Jane's 2016 TIAS.  Did not realize until almost finished that he was born with a foot defect.  Also one ear is a little wonky.  I will probably make another when my cold I have been fighting since Christmas clears up (almost there) and I can concentrate on the pattern better. 

I have submitted my patterns to the Palmetto Tatters Guild for the 2016 Tat Days to be held in September in Toccoa, GA.  Anyone interested in submitting has until February 15. 

We are having snow flurries today.  No accumulation anticipated.  I can concentrate on finishing a few projects that have been put aside while doing the TIAS and tat patterns.
