Rainbow days

Your rainbow is shaded white and green.


What is says about you: You are a contemplative person. You feel strong ties to nature and your mood changes with its cycles. People depend on you to make them feel secure. Those around you admire your fresh outlook and vitality.

Luck of the Irish

I had a couple of yards of Yarnplayer's Leafy hand-dyed thread left on a shuttle and decided to attempt this Celtic Knot Shamrock designed by Marilee Rockley. It took a bit of fiddling to weave the knot but I am thrilled with how it turned out. It is number 18 in my 25 motif challenge and a gift for my husband's 91 year old Nana who has a bit of the Irish in her.

Lazy daisy

This is a little update to show you what I've been tatting recently. The webpage with the pattern on is no longer in existence but my print-out shows that it is called "Arlene's First Place Win". I'm tatting it in Yarnplayer's Leafy hand dyed green thread and Flora size 20 yellow and white threads. I've one more round of green to go before the final round of daisies around the outside. It is already the largest single piece of tatting I have completed.
