New Threads

Hi all, I know it's been awhile, but you'll see why in my next post! Gotta finish up one component and block it all, then I can share! ^^

Recently I won my first Ebay auction on some treads. I couldn't resist -- all the colors were beautiful and were all threads that I haven't tatted with before!

All together, I got nearly 80 balls of size 70 thread, with a few size fives and threes mixed in. There were also some multiple balls of the same colors, so I'm offering them up on the thread exchange as soon as I can get them measured.

I couldn't resist sharing, as they're all so pretty!

Once I get them organized by color and the cards made, I'll repost with better pictures (I couldn't wait to share!)

Also included was two small crochet edging samples:

I really, really like these. Anyone know where I might can find the pattern? They're both the same.. All I know about these are that they were bought from an estate sale.

.. And to show that I have been tatting...

Sneak peak of what's to come! So many ends to hide...

Goodbye, Nana..

Nana passed earlier this week with her daughter by her side. I'm still not fully over the shock of it all, but I know she is in a better place.

This came completely out of left field. She was doing great after surgery.. What happened? Why did it have to happen?

Nana and I had plans to go pick blueberries, and I was going to take her to pick strawberries. She wanted to make some jams and jellies, as did I. They'll both be in season soon, so I'm already planning on going to get some to make.

Goodbye, Nana. Have fun on your next adventure! (sniff sniff)

Prayer Request

This past week has been a total roller coaster for everyone in M's household, and I'd like to request that anyone who does pray to pray for them.

Nana went in for a knee surgery this past Tuesday and made it through alright. She was up and taking her first tentative steps and was lucid.

Later in the evening on Wednesday, she suffered a heart attack and went without oxygen for eight minutes and lapsed into a coma.

As of right now, being 72 hours out of first slipping under, it's looking like she won't wake up.

Please keep M and his family in your prayers. I'm still hopeful she will pull through, but it's looking bleaker by the minute.

Thanks for reading, and I wish the brightest of blessings to all.
