Two Tattings this week

Here are a couple of tatting motifs I did this week. One is Madonna & Child by Mark Myers. The other is a pig by Jane Eborall.

Lap Dog & Angel

Well, I had my hubby take a picture of me and Jack today. As you can see, he still thinks he is a lap dog.

I tatted an angel for my husband's cousin, who is in the hospital. We will be going to see her and wanted to give her a little something. I love angels.

This n That

Well I had a busy week last week. Lots of quilting. I updated my webshots folders. You can see some of the quilting I have been doing.

Here are a couple of small quilting projects I did. The crosses are from Patty Duffs book. I make lots of these for my dad to hand out. He is the head chaplain at a hospital in AZ. The snowflake is also from her book. I used NiteLite Glow in the dark thread and DMC 80. The glow in the dark by itself would have been too small. I want to make lots of these. They look so pretty at night.
Sparks People
A friend of mine got me started on this website. It is for weightloss, nutrician & exercise. It has lots of free recipes, exercises, menus, trackers, etc. Worth the look.

What I have been up too

Well I have busy as all get out. Quilting, quilting, quilting. I have quilted 11 quilts in the last 2 weeks. So business is doing good.

Weekends have been spent quilting, a car show, and taking #3 son car shopping. He finally found a rig last Sunday. Yah no more trips to car lots.

Daughter got qualified with her PartyLite candles, so she can sell sell sell.

I have been quilting till my hubby gets home at night. I am usually too tired to do any tatting. While car shopping I did work on my ongoing tatting project. It is a doily. Here is a picture of it so far. I am on the last round, but as you can see it is a large last round.

One of the tatters on line has a son leaving for Iraq again. The last time they sent him off with lots of tatted hearts that he passed out to the troops. They called for those who want to make them to send with him again. Last night I made one. I will try to make several more. So here is a picture.

Jack Continues To Grow!

Well Jack went to the vet for the last of his puppy shots. He weighed in at 43 pounds. The vet thinks he will be 100 or more when he is done. He still thinks his a lap dog. Loves to cuddle and play. He is doing good on walks. He grew out of his collar again, so I made him a new one. I used the left over camera fabric I made my photographer husband's pillow case from. Here is a picture of it and a picture of Jack wearing it. He loves it.
We don't have cable, so have never seen the dog whisper. Was given his website and checked into it. Neat stuff. A friend told me the library has some of his books and DVDs. Checked on the DVD People Training and his Book Cesar's Way. If you are training or have some dog issues that need to be addressed, check out his stuff.

Here are some new pictures of Jack. One of him waking up dad in the morning.
