Tatting and Applactions

Another ATC card.  The framed owl is just tatting fun.


I love frames, and found a cute print that fits in this adorable frame by Aux Navettes in her book La Frivolite
when you use size 40 thread it is the perfect standard size of 3,1/2 by 2,1/2 for card.

I did add snap and a little rose to cover mistake in tatting ooops!

My little granddaughter had a birthday party by the pool she loves the old movie "Little Mermaid" the gram-cracker ground up made perfect sand for the white chocolate sea shells tops on cup cakes.  The clam shell cookies with candy pearls, in the homemade butter-cream frosting Yum!.  The cool starfish Watermelon was refreshing too!
All made by my daughter Connie everyone had wonderful time!

When we went shopping, I had to take a picture of some great crochet handwork, for a wheel cover on a jeep
WOW goes with my motto  "if you don't wear it, no one will know you made it" ha ha ha

  1. That crochet wheel cover would get awfully grubby on my vehicle, which would be a shame for such a lot of work!

  2. I know what you mean they must only drive on paved roads and it doesn't rain that much in Texas, maybe they have a garage ??? :)

  3. The ATC needle books look great. I've done 'the cover up' myself. If you can't see it, it didn't happen, right? Those are such great ideas for the party! Your daughter did a great job!
    Ditto on the comments by Jane and Madtatter80. But it is eye-catching!

  6. I am speechless. All these pictures are amazing! My mum will be in stitches when she sees the crochet cover for the wheel. She drove a 4x4 in the Centram african bush for 30 years. Through sand, mud, thorns and ..Potholes, potholes, potholes,..
    Did you look under the cover? I think this must be a very special wheel!!

    1. I touched it and there was a real tire under it, but that's all I know :) It was real pretty and nice work, odd but worthy enough to blog about!

    2. Also the houses in the back ground are small play houses for children, might make it look odd too.

    1. I know I was eating a cupcake and at this great cupcake place, and sitting out side and this jeep pulled up next to our car and it took me a minute for the brain to compute!

  11. Ok , there is no wheel under that cover. It is way to big for that car!

    1. The picture was taken with my phone camera and the wheel is the closest thing to the camera, also in the united states people like to put very large wheels on jeep and pickup trucks as a status symbol I can take a picture of a regular jeep with out a cover on it to show you the size, it might take me a couple days to find one in a parking lot. but it is true you can see the metal if look close.

  13. Hallo Liebes
    Also du bist wirklich eine Meisterin in dieser Handarbeit. Sowas edles feines zu arbeiten erfordert eine riesen Geduld. Ich bin wirklich sprachlos. . Das man sowas so schön filigran arbeiten kann. Ganz liebe Grüsse aus der Schweiz. Marlies

  14. Lovely frames, your grand daughters party table looks great, I hope she enjoyed all the treats and the pool.
    What a great piece of crochet, I had to show my hubby his one comment what happens when it rains, typical man comment he did agree it was a great piece of crochet. He's got no chance of me doing it I can't crochet.
    Great picture and find.
    Sorry this is late still trying to catch up on the blogs
