Hardanger scented sachet

I finally finished my Mother's birthday present.  I had the hardanger completed for some time, but had a hard time deciding how to finish it.  At least she'll get it before Christmas -- her birthday was in October.



I am working on learning to tat.  I'm feeling pretty good about it so far, but I need a lot more practice.  Here are some of the pieces I've done so far.I started out with a tatting size 20 thread for the white tree, used a size 8 pearl cotton for the darker green tree, then tried a size 80 tatting thread for the smallest tree.

Lorraine's Give-away

My friend Lorraine is having a beautiful give-away of some of her exquisite hand dyed threads.  I have purchased threads from Lorraine and believe me; these are worth having.  Check it out.

 Along with her brilliant colored threads, she is giving away Rebecca's Sampler for you to stitch.
