Playing with Needles

So for Christmas my mother gave me a set of tatting needles, something I've been wanting to try my hands at for quite a while now. So I started a mask using TotusMel's flower pendant I'm working it with my largest needle and the remainder of my super large size 3 thread (previously used for a mask back in November you may remember, it was for a friend down in Virgina).

Still working on this, in the meantime though, I just had to try the size 80 thread thats been lying around tempting me for the last couple of months. I decided to make a ring my tale wasn't quite long enough so it didn't come out exactly as planned, I'm still very happy with it.

 My parents say it's a good thing I'm near sighted lol.

It's been an age since I posted anything so here's a lot of random thrown out for you.

So I bought this bag at a thrift shop when I was 8ish and needless to say it's been in the back of my closer since then

after some research I discovered that this canvas shopping bag was patented in 1947
The tag reeds patent pending so I was fairly impressed buy the find

This was a christmas bracelet for my sister in law she loved!
