Well, yesterday was such a beautiful day (in the 60's) that I thought I would change my background to match! I hope we are just not being teased with this weather and then get some snow and cold weather again. This makes me want to get into some new crafts and create something different. Maybe I'll start making some greeting cards again and add my tatting to them.

I have decided to start teaching tatting again at my local Hobby Lobby. They make it so easy to get a class going. They don't charge anything to use their classroom and I can pick a day to demonstrate out in their lobby. I plan to set up a table with many of my tatted samples laid out for people to see, and simply sit in a chair and tat. I have always been able to get some students that way. I really like to teach--it's fun seeing someone's excitement when they learn something new. Anyway, that's my plan and I'll let you know how it all comes out. I figured if I tell you all that I'm going to do it, I will actually do it. Here's hoping I get some students . . . .

Renewing our Vows on Valentine's Day!

Today at our church, all the couples who were married since 1985 renewed their vows, and that also included me and my husband, Terry. We have been married for 41 years and I couldn't tell you where all the time has gone! Before we know it, it will be 50 years and that's 1/2 a century! I feel like this is a great accomplishment for us and after 41 years, we still love each other. What a great ceremony to have on this Valentine's Day!

All Things "Love"

Soon, another Valentine's Day will be here and we think about "all things love." At our church, on Valentine's Day (which is Sunday), we are having a ceremony for married couples to renew their vows. Anyone married before 1985 has been invited to participate, and since my husband and I were married in 1968, we definitely qualify. I am curious to see just how many couples will be in the group--it will be a very special time. In keeping with Valentine's Day, here is a picture of the one and only lace heart I have made. I plan to make more since I have tons of lace and a sewing machine. That's all I need to make this heart.
