Office decor

Posted in Bobbin Lace, Tatting at 3:35 pm by dianelaces


Just thought I would share some if my lace that I use to decorate my cubicle wall. I used to change it out, but these pieces have been hanging for quite a while.
The large black tatted butterfly was copied from a piece my mom picked up in an antique store. The small white swan is bobbin lace. The pattern is Schneeberger and I got it from Lisa Baumeister many years ago. The tatted penguin is my own design. The other tatted animals are from Jane Eborall’s website. I especially love the flamingo and the giraffe.

Puerperium cardigan

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:44 am by dianelaces


Started this little baby sweater last night while The Boy was at the homecoming dance. It is so fun to knit I can’t put it down! The newborn size is a free pattern but I’m tempted to spring for the pay pattern to get more sizes. I can see myself knitting this one a lot. Hope Marisa will like it!

Suddenly I find myself with quite a few knitting projects.  Yesterday was cool, not even sweater weather but coat weather! I really want to start wearing my sweaters. I have a new one for myself that just needs to be sewn together and the neck band  knitted up. If I can put this baby sweater down long enough maybe I’ll get that done!
