May Happenings

I can hardly believe it's the end of May already. Our weather seems to think it's still February but I know that summer is around the corner somewhere!

I have been crafting my little heart out lately. I haven't taken the time to take pictures or post about most of the items I've made but I decided to share the tags I made for a blog hosted tag swap for May. It's hosted by Marie over at The Pretty Paper Boutique
Here are some pictures of my tags...

I also had the opportunity to take a class with my mom this last Saturday. We learned how to needle tat. My mother has been shuttle tatting for years and my grandmother also shuttle tatted. I've tried but just couldn't seem to get the hang of shuttle tatting. We thought maybe needle tatting would be a bit easier with the same results and we were right! I had so much fun. I did have a bit of trouble and did not finish my project in class. I came home and worked with a larger thread and was able to get the hang of it. Now I am ready to start some different projects and learn how to read various patterns. I am really excited to be able to carry on the art of tatting that has been around for centuries! Here is a picture of my completed project and one of the thread and needle.

So the end of school is only one week away and the girls are aching to do fun things. I will post pictures of our various adventures as they take place!
