I entered Livi's Doily in the local fair. It won a blue 1st place ribbon!
The doily is not finished yet, but I am most certainly taking a bit of a break from it.
I also entered this hair clip. It's an abbreviated version of the flower in Mary Konior's Tatting with Visual Patterns.
This won a 2nd place ribbon. :o)
It looks like I passed my bad vision genes down to Livi. I finally got around to getting her eyes checked and sure enough she needed glasses.
She rocks them, don't you think?
I got a new colorway dyed up. I tend to shy away from the warmer colors, such as red and orange. I don't usually feel as confident with them. Anticipation for Fall put me in a mood for rich warm colors though.
At first, I thought it would be a nice leaf color, but I decided it would make a nice floral color as well. :o)
And as the title suggests, we are still attempting to settle in around here. I find it difficult to find opportunities to get on the computer. We have a plethora of laptop computers but I do my best work on a desktop. I'm sure it will all work out eventually!
