2016 TIAS - Day 8

HEY I Made Dinner!

OK I think this is the first time in a very long time that I've actually made a meal and not just heated up fast food or ordered in!  Gotta do this more often now I've the auto loan!

Hey I baked a Sobeyes ready mixed meatloaf that was not needed at our Aurora gathering potluck yesterday.  So found some beans - I miked along with the leftover potatoes and gravy from yesterday's potluck - had one awesome early supper.   Now I've leftovers for two more meals plus slices for a sandwich lunch too!  YUMMY it sure was!!!

2016 TIAS - Day 7

Yeppers I'm pretty sure this is knotting up to be a frog, now will it be a natural one or a royal one???   Here's Day 7 of the 2016 TIAS mystery!  I'm really enjoying this Jane, hopefully they will continue!

2016 TIAS - Day 5

Here's Day 5 of the 2016 TIAS mystery today.  This I started off the opposite way so had to "rippit" back to Day 4's tatting.  Now I'm guessing this might become a lobster or the back end of a frog?

2016 TIAS - Day 4

Here is Day 4 of the 2016 TIAS mystery with a cut and tie off at the end.  Still no idea what this could be.  The next part has double the thread wound on the shuttles - can't wait to see what direction this goes next.

Feeling in Love!!!

Now don't go getting excited it's not that reason!!!

See I have my new baby, got my car stuff inside her ready to roll.  And she's plugged in to ward off the cold too.  Thank you Pat for letting me drive you home and also taking our picture!

2016 TIAS - Day 3

I'm going for a walk to the Library today!  BRRRRR this is day 4 of the cold temps - glad I can stay inside if I don't want to dress up and go out!  Sorry Barb, Linda and others who have to go out!

Here is my Day 3 of the 2016 TIAS, using Lizabeth colour 168 in size 20, this is a very slight variegated thread. So far all's good! I still am not sure what this will grow up to be. Anyone have a guess for me?

2016 TIAS - Day 2

Here is my Day 2 using Lizabeth colour 168 in size 20, this is a very slight variegated thread.  So far all's good!  Unless this is some wheel shaped object I still am not sure what it should be, unless these are legs for some human or mammal.

2016 Tat It And See

OK Jane Eborall's  Tat It And See for 2016 is off and knotting once again!!!  

Here is my Day 1 using Lizabeth colour 168 in size 20, this is a very slight variegated thread and I'm hoping will be very close to one colour as possible and not mess up the finished mystery!  
Now as for a guess of what it will grow up to be - Nada, Zippo, None At All!  😊

2008 CRV is Mine!!!

I'm feeling very stressed but also happy at the same time!!!  How can that be?

OMGG I've been jumping through hoops and tossed around on the Salt n Pepper carnival ride all afternoon and not sure if my stomach will stay put now!!!
See I just had word that my loan is approved and this baby is hopefully in my hands for good tomorrow!!!  I'll get better pictures in the daytime this week, I promise.

OK I gotta somehow get my heart to stop racing!

Cat Sitting Over

New Year's Eve I was preparing Nalysnyky - Ukrainian cheese rolls for my friends upon their return to try out.  I'm sure the cats knew something was going on as they stayed near me most of the day except nap time.  Then I ventured outside to snap a picture of their return.

My ornament gift for Linda.
Linda's gift for me from Montreal - Folksy Santa.

On a Tatting Spree

Within my Northern Lights Lace group we were to have a "lace" Christmas ornament exchange but for various reasons it's been postponed.  So this allowed me to work on a tatted one.  Then I decided I like them so much I'm making a few for gifts - just completed another one only.  Maybe not all right now.
